I was home alone last night because P2 (That is our best way decipher each other when telling stories. For this blog I will be P1 and the love of my life Paul will be P2) was in Long Island working. As you know I made myself some amazing eggplant. When I was done I was on the couch chillin' with the dogs. My friend Anthony started an iChat with me, and of course we discussed food!
He described to me an amazing dish that I really wanted to try! It was a Thai rice dish with shrimp. He made it for his girlfriend Kristen, and she loved it. It sounded perfect for my next blog! I've never cooked Thai before so I thought it could be fun to figure it out and, after reviewing the recipe, I knew it would be perfect!!! Not only would I get practice Thai cooking, but Nicole was coming over for dinner and she LOVES Thai!
This recipe he sent me was perfect because it was really about technique, and not so much about paying attention to exactly what it said. Even when discussing it with Anthony he told me that he needed to adjust the recipe, because it was not exactly right!
So I am going to show you the recipe that he sent me from the book, and do two things. I am going to show you how it was not accurate and how you can take a recipe and make it your own!
Here is the original recipe:
