red curry and vegetables

This evening, David and I tried a new vegan recipe adapted from the truffle honey blog.  When I am “cooking” in the kitchen, David is less a sous chef and more of an emergency responder.  Without fail there will always be some minor or major disaster in the kitchen from exploding pots to fires.
