Pumpkin and Prawn Thai Curry

Okay, we’re getting to the end of this experiment and I’ve had exactly one person tell me to keep going with it. So this might be the end of it, unless I hear from others.

Anyway, this evening I finished the Cottage Pie that had been lurking in the refrigerator from the weekend.

I also made a special dinner for The Boy. There has been half a bag of frozen prawns lurking in the freezer for some time now. He loves them (he cooked them up on the bbq) I thought they were truly awful. The smell was too much for me – and I love prawns. It was so very sad.

Anyway, I thought I’d do him a dish with a few of his favourite things in… So, he had a Thai green curry (check!) with pumpkin (check!), bok choy (check!) and prawns (and CHECK!).

It all went rather swimmingly except for a brief interlude when I was interrupted by an important call and it started to catch. I thought I might have to bin it, but fought back the tears (his special meal! OMG! Nooooo!) and transferred it to a separate pan and carried on.

He seemed to really enjoy it, including the sweat he broke in the middle of winter in Ballarat…

So, I used the last of the pumpkin from the shop and cleared a little space in the freezer by using the prawns. The leftovers of the jasmine rice that I cooked to accompany it are now in the refrigerator for future use. Shopping for fresh vegetables tomorrow.

He is awaiting the after effects of the curry…
