A Long Awaited Recipe!

* Argh! This was supposed to go up at the start of this week! I'm so sorry it's late. I've just finished my last exam and I'm packing for a trip to London and then home for mum's birthday. I hope you enjoy this recipe and forgive me for the delay.

I only have one exam left! Whooooo! Unfortunately it's also the longest/hardest but we'll skip that for now.* Today I am going to share with you a recipe for Thai Green Curry so that you can finally put that curry paste recipe from last month to good use. I don't know why it's taken me so long to post this - I think I just always thought I already had, as it's one of my favourite meals. It's really easy to make and if you don't want to make your own paste then I'd probably recommend Mae Ploy as the paste to use - you can buy it from Tesco and Asian supermarkets as well as probably others. It's a large pot and will last for ages but once you've made your own curry pastes then I can promise that you won't go back.

A New Idea

Oh woe is me! Exams are upon me! And I have no real inclination to cook as I don't have the time for my usual marathons, so I thought I'd try out a new idea for the blog, based on a theme that Kassiella does - weekly photos of what I've been up to, or more accurately, what I've been cooking. It's often old favourites that I turn to over revision time and I will link the recipes where they're ones I've already shared with you. This week has had ups and downs, I had a lovely afternoon with two good friends on Wednesday, to celebrate the end of a project Grace and I had been working on for uni and that we had all done our speaking exams for French. The rest of my week, well you're just going to have to look at the pictures!

Clockwise from top left
- Chocolate chip cookies to aid my revision
- Pork and peppers with noodles (from this recipe but I ran out of sesame seeds)
- Two new 500ml water bottles to encourage me to drink more water - as I've been drinking 3-4 of them each day I think it's working!
- Thai Green Curry - I promise that'll be my next recipe!
- The napkin from Filthy Cow in Manchester, which does seriously good burgers and has a really fun decor. I ate the burger and chips too fast to remember to take a photo
- Pizza Express dough balls from a lazy evening home alone
- Veal pasta from a lovely restaurant in Scarborough, where my family ate after watching the Tour de Yorkshire - I counted 55 police motor bikes!
- My new ladle from OTOTO, it's so cute and it stands up on its own!
- A delicious bowl of pea and pancetta risotto with a liberal serving of parmesan

What do you think of this new style of post? Is it a good idea or does it make you too hungry? And is that a good thing?
