Easy Peasy Red Thai Curry

I am new to this whole blogging thing. I can tell.

I think you are supposed to post as you do things, but that hasn’t worked out for me yet. I’ve got to start somewhere though, right?

Most people that know me know that I love Thai food. Actually, I love ethnic food of every variety (except maybe American and Canadian 🙂

I am currently living for two months with a couple who are not big into a lot of different spices. As a result, I am having to find easy meals that don’t require a lot of ingredients.
