    I’m currently in the USA now, spending time with the husband’s family. It has been really liberating to be disconnected from technology during my time away. No wifi, no mobile data, no computers, and no ipad. But at the same time, I miss blogging, interacting with readers like yourself, and creating in my kitchen.

    My mother-in-law has been more than generous with sharing her kitchen space with me, and I’m grateful for that. I’m also appreciative that I get to not worry about what to make in the kitchen, and get fed good food by good people. 🙂

    Before I left for our annual visit to the USA, I made this amazing Thai red curry with pineapple and duck. I love duck by the way, if I can have it everyday, I probably would. And by now, you would have realised that I love Thai food as well, so this was a perfect combination. Hot, sweet, slightly sour from the pineapples, and loaded with gorgeous aromatic Thai spices in this glorious thick curry over delicious roast duck breast. Oh my yum!

    I would have used cherry tomatoes if not for the husband. He doesn’t like those sweet-juicy-mouth-bursting little babies. He finds it explicit that I describe it that way. Oh well. But I’d highly recommend that you use cherry tomatoes instead of regular tomato like I did. Visually it’ll be much more appealing too.
