When I visited Nairobi at the end of September, I insisted on going out to a Thai restaurant. It was surprisingly delicious, and not just because we were in Kenya! I will write more about Nairobi soon – but I was inspired to try out some Thai cooking myself. I began cooking my own dinners a few weeks back. Spaghetti pasta with butter, salt and pepper, tossed with some cut-up tomatoes and avocados. Simple, tasty, healthy, and oh it made me happy. I have always been too busy to cook my own meals back in SF, and I’m finding that I really enjoy it, especially with fresh vegetables so available! I stepped it up a notch this Monday though, and I went to Nakumatt’s exotic foods aisle and found some green curry paste. I am now making some seriously good food over here, people! Green curry eggplant and spinach with pan-fried noodles. Oh the new taste sensation is magnificent manna to my mouth!
Next concoction for my menu: Sauteed spinach with Thai pepper sauce!
