Thai Pangnang Peanut Butter Curry

Today is the 7th of January or it might still be the 6th depending on where in the world you’re hailing from.  I can’t believe we are officially one week stuck into this year.  The year of the positive outlook.

Yesterday I went to the supermarket and startled the shop attendant by letting out a large “Gasp” while she was scanning my rice crackers.  “What?? you OK?” she seemed slightly annoyed.  “My Gawd” I pointed behind her “You’re selling eggs, Easter eggs”.  She just smiled.. but seriously My gawd, already??

So far I’m a little behind on my goals, but I think some slack should be cut in January, January is kinda like the trial period, the warm up (well at least that’s what I’m telling myself).  I don’t have an amazing introduction to the next recipe other then it’s amazing and thank-you Mr internet for helping me find the perfect recipe, slightly modified by yours truly.  But i do have to say I really love a Pangnang, at home or from my local Thai place.
