remember how I said that I actually wanted to start cooking? well, tonight was the night. I made an AMAZING Thai green curry with shrimp dish. it was my sister's idea, but I googled a recipe and circled the aisles of the grocery store until I found each and every ingredient. with lime zest and plenty of fresh basil, this dish was one of the best things I've made in a long time. well, since I've really only been reheating things in the microwave this isn't saying a whole lot, but this was a pretty amazing meal. and a big thanks to Emeril for the delicious recipe. trust me, there were no leftovers.
I also made strawberry shortcake using this recipe with the strawberries that we picked up yesterday. it was eaten by a little backyard bonfire with a side of roasted marshmallows, gazing up at the stars. you can understand that I was in such a state of bliss that I didn't even think to take a picture.
