Don't let what he wants eclipse what you need. He's very dreamy, but he's not the sun, you are.

Thai Red Curry Noodles

I've been extremely fortunate in my life. I don't have just one best friend, I have five. They know me inside and out; my desires, my wishes, every nasty little thought I've had. They are my Amazons and they inspire me every single day. This next statement is going is going to be controversial, but I'm going to say it anyway. They are more amazing and dynamic than any man they have been or are currently with (I'm sorry lads!).

Amazing, talented, beautiful, vivacious, and driven doesn't even begin to cover it.
I tend to believe this is true in most relationships. One woman is enough for one man, but one man is never enough for the amazing people I know ;). Gentlemen, the ladies in this Group of Six (G6) tend to go fast, only two are currently available...CALL NOW BEFORE THEY'RE GONE! My best friends are unyielding anchors, and I value their friendships dearly. I'm not very good at casual relationships, and I don't just mean romantically. If I chose to have you in my life, it is a very deliberate decision. I love deeply and carefully curate those within my sphere of influence.  For me, a friend is a lover and a lover is a god. I would risk it all for my Amazonian Gods. I can't wait to unite them under a corporation someday because I know they could rule the world.

For these amazing ladies I am making Thai Red Curry Noodles. I'm pretty sure it's what we would all want on a cold and overcast day.

Thai Red Curry Noodles
Serves One

3 Oz of Rice Noodles
2 Tsp. Diced Onions (remember our conversation on buying diced onions if you are cooking for one)
1 Jalepeno Halved and Sliced Thin (take out the seeds if you don't want this spicy)
1/2 Tsp. Garlic Ginger Paste 
3 Tbsp. Red Curry Paste 
1/3 Can Coconut Milk
5 Mushrooms Quartered
1/2 Cup Frozen Stir Fry Vegetables
1/4 Tsp Salt
1/2 Lime, Juiced
1/2 Red Pepper Sliced
1 Tablespoon Crushed Peanuts for Garnish

1. Place the rice noodles in cold water for 30 minutes
2. If you are missing your London days, take time and have tea and scones. I just bought this adorable cup for $3 at Ms. Pixie's, check out my Yelp review for the shop!

3. Boil the rice noodles for 5 minutes and drain (you can do this after the curry is ready)

4.  Sauté the jalapeño and onion for about 5 minutes

5. Add garlic ginger paste and sauté for another 3 to 4 minutes

6. Add red curry paste and allow the flavors to meld for an additional 2 minutes

Looking good hot stuff!
6. Add mushrooms, frozen stir fry vegetables, lime juice and salt (an excellent way to cook for one is getting frozen vegetables. You use what you need and save the rest for later)

8. Add the noodles into the curry and mix together
