Thai Green Tofu Curry

We love Thai curries – but have become a bit tired of the standard red curry we’ve made quite often. Green curry (that actually comes out looking more putrid-yellow rather than green), is a nice change of pace. A bit less spicy than red curry, we found we wanted more flavor after the first time...

Pretty. Unremarkable. Food.

Maybe my reason for lack-of-posts this last week has been the food itself. Yes, I took pictures. Yes, we actually DID eat something.
