This weekend I was inspired to pull out my box o' cookbooks that I got upon completion of my internship with Lisa Ekus last summer. Since I'd recently made a special trip to the Asian food mart across the river, I decided to try my hand at Thai cooking for the very first time. This was actually one of the first cookbooks I chose on my last day when Lisa's colleagues led me to the book room to pick out some to take home. I looove Thai food and trying new and exotic recipes, so this was really an adventure.

Tomorrow I'll have a real post, but here are some teaser pictures of what I made (I apologize for photo quality, I still have no real camera)
