As I think about what I like to cook, I've decided that Asian food is my go-to cuisine. I cook Indian and Thai food more than I cook plain ole American fare (by a lot). For dinner the other night, I made Vietnamese Summer Rolls and a Thai Green Curry with basmati rice (which is typically Indian, but I didn't have the traditional Jasmine rice). I love both of these dishes because you can turn semi-normal ingredients into something crazy-flavorful and exotic with just a few off-the-beaten-path ingredients. Here are some pictures from my cooking extravaganza. By the way. . . I didn't have to go to the store for any of this. I had it all on hand.

They may look a little different, but these adventures are the ones that really matter.
