A delicious Thai dinner is never very far away in our house. The most recent one was a Thai Coconut Curry Chicken with Petit Peas that I cooked in 1 hr. When the weather is still a little chilly, I crave warm, mildly spicy flavors. The easiest is our coconut curry which can be made with chicken, fish, and shellfish. When we make it, our house always fills with the aroma of lemongrass and coconut.
The added bonus is that we get to introduce at least the smells of lemongrass, ginger and coconut to our little culinary passenger. Sophia loves to smell new things; she brings her little nose to the food and takes a deep, deep breath. Whether this works or not, we are not sure. We are doing our best to get her used to the idea of experiencing new things.
Ah, lemongrass, I love it!!! It’s amazing that your little one gets to be exposed to so many different flavors!!! LIbbie loves to stick her head into Boris’s cooking too, if we let her, that is… 🙂
