Red Curry Thai and Beef Soup

I was so COMPLETELY unmotivated Sunday. I got to the gym, did laundry, and then got groceries.  The last was a necessity. The time the snow was finally cleared out last week, we left for California.  We never made a trip to the store between the snow and our trip.  Basically Tuesday night we were scavengers.

But I digress.  

All of the above was completed by 11am.  Then I vegged.  Is that word?  All day long.   In yoga pants.  Watching TV. Eating chocolates and drinking hot chocolate.  Even though the wind was outside I was cold.

Mr. J convinced me that we needed food.  As in a decent meal made from home.  With vegetables. He was right but of course he wasn't the one off the couch.  Good thing it  was an easy dish.  I am currently obsessed with curry paste.  Add coconut milk, veggies and some protein and you have a meal.  A hot meal that warms you from the inside out.

  1. Great minds think a like. :) I like the sweet potato in this soup. :) To answer your question about storage... just keep the paste in the fridge. If it's store bought (like Thai Kitchen brand) it should keep for a long time.

  2. Mmmm this soup looks so good (sans beef for me :D)
