Kayla’s Choice – food – Red Thai Curry

I never imagined myself to be adding recipes to this blog, seeing as I’m not really a cook. I’m someone that has never found cooking to be fun and I can also be very particular about what I eat.

But from my previous blog (if you’ve read it), I did mention about learning ways in loving food again and with addition to that, my friend has asked me to send her the recipe. So really it’s thanks to her that I’m doing this. Cheers chica.

So, Red Thai Curry for 2 people, as well as leftovers (usually for myself & my fiancé). With this dish we change it up, to either the vegetarian option or with chicken.
