We were wandering the many aisles at Costco, where many happy food stories start. My Thai Hubby had found a bag of mini rainbow peppers, and on the bag was a bright, colorful picture of them being stuffed with yummy goodies. We looked at the adorable mini stuffed peppers, and had a light bulb moment! “Let’s make a Thai version of a stuffed pepper!”
“My friend gave me a stalk of lemongrass, and I just held it and stared at without a clue how to use it! What do I do??”One of my dear friends messaged me this recently, and I assured her that she wasn’t alone in her befuddlement at lemongrass.
In the crazy corona days, I drift between wanting to create masterpieces in the kitchen since nights aren’t as packed lately and cooking is like therapy, or just wanting to make something effortless because I’m worn out with a new routine of homeschooling and not having much of a break from mom life and feeling sad about our world.
