In the phot of Elodie-Anne, I just noticed the beaded flowers in the Arizona ice tea bottle. I've always thought it was so beautiful with its delicate pink flowers and minty background, but then felt nuts because, I mean, it's an ice tea bottle. It's nice to find beauty in ordinary things, no?

So much good stuff at the auction, I'm still trying to decide what to bid on. Decisions, decisions.

What better way to start a new year than helping, in such a real way, to effect the lives of others. Elodie-Anne and all the other artwork at the Kim Family site warm the world.

Jessica

That's so funny you mention the ice tea bottle b/c it's the first thing I noticed in that pict! Really, the design on that one has lovely colors (esp the pink cherry blossoms!) and I've saved a couple myself! Nice to know I'm not alone.

For those of you who are lazy like me, and who live near a Trader Joe's, they have a really good Thai Green Curry sauce in a a jar that you can just add to fresh or frozen veggies.

Love the beaded flowers, too!

Pam

I'm late on the plan as well but enjoying reading everyone elses. Happy happy.

oh gosh alicia, i dont think you could have hit the nail on the head any closer with this recipe than if you were actually able to read my mind. that probably doesnt make any sense, but thanks for sharing, i am so making this!! could i link to this over at the recipe box?

Toni

I was so excited to see all the bids too!! What a huge success already. It will feel so good to see the Kim family get a really fat check!!

I say you make one of those recipes from Andy's new cook book and eat it while watching Postmen in the Mountains. It's the perfect set-up :)

Toni

Oh..I AM going to make that curry!! Thank you!

I think Asian cuisines are some of the easiest to master. I had never really made any Japanese food when I moved to Japan, but I found it so easy and I became so obsessed, I started a food blog about it. Basically, if you have a few key ingredients, you can make almost anything. Here are some of the recipes I make, if you want to give it a try!

My favorite Asian cookbook is called Terrific Pacific by Anya von Bremzen. It's full of recipes from the entire Pacific rim with cuisines I knew nothing about before I read the book. There's one whole chapter on curries with notes on how to make your own curry powders and pastes. The recipes come from all kinds of sources as well - chefs, home cooks and street vendors so the skill levels are from basic to advanced. The book has recipes and travel essays with interesting cultural notes for all the countries. It's definitely one of those cookbooks you can read for pleasure.

I was going to suggest salmon as an alternative in the curry but maybe not in the Paulson house eh?

sally

Oh yummy! The curry looks delicious. We're big fans of curry in our household, so I'll be trying the recipe this week!

One thing nice about most Asian cooking, you only need a few key ingredients in your pantry to whip up a dish. I find it much easier than cooking "American" food, but then again I'm Asian...ok, duh. Anyhoo...can't wait to see what else you cook up this year!

When I was in college, I lived with with a mixed asian couple. He was Indian, she was Chinese, both were vegetarian. Together they cooked the most amazing food. It was always an incredible production, and I have good memories of our little household gathered in the cozy kitchen on chilly winter evenings, the windows steamed up, the counters overflowing with bowls and vegetables, the sizzling sound of the wok, the most incredible smells, and the anticipation of yummy food. We had a good deal - they cooked, we cleaned up the mess afterward.

Alicia, you are truly my hero. Many years ago when I was newly married and yound and naive, I got the "Thousand Recipe Chinese Cookbook" as a wedding present. Not knowing any better, I sold it at a garage sale a few years later. After my best friend, who passed away very suddenly and unexpectedly and very sadly a few years ago, I realized that her egg roll recipe came from there. I was absolutely fornlorn that I had sold that book and have been looking for a first edition since. Thank you Thank you Thank you for giving it to Andy and posting a source to order it. You don't know what this means to me. And yes, we made those egg rolls by the dozen and used many many little bowls. How I miss that. But know thanks to you, I can rekindle those egg rolls!

i was just beginning to get my pregnant cravings for egg rolls and fried rice under control. this did me in. take out for supper. (i don't have enough little bowls in my kitchen...is that a good excuse??!!)

claire

Anyone tell you that Miss Elodie-Ann (oh that name makes my heart flutter it is so cute!) would make a lovely postcard? Her new mommy is going to be so lucky! I am so sorry that the weather is gloomy there, we are being blessed with amazing weather. So great I feel a little guilty telling you about it...Sadly its not good movie watching weather which is all I feel like doing right now. We are looking forward to your lovely pics that will come when the sun moves up north a bit!

Fascinated by your Asian cooking tales. I clicked over to the Kim Family Ebay Auction and it is so wonderful to see all of these people bidding and giving so much for this cause. Beautiful thing people. I saw more than a few things I would love to bid on. Thanks for the link there.

MMMMMmmmmmmmmm

Lolita Blahnik

Thanks for the recipe!!! I'll try it soon!!

Renee

Your doll for the auction is adorable. So wonderful to see how generous everyone is, from the artists to the bidders. Your curry looks great too, i will try the recipe. Thank you

Mae

Okay. The whole curry thing has always been a bit of turnoff for me. I think I had a bad experience that I've blocked from my mind (or my palate!) or something. This dish looks very tempting though. I just may try it! Thank you for sharing this and all of your musings and doings. Happy New Year Alicia!

Carrie Sommer

Oh my, that looks so yum! I love curry - that is so going on the list this weekend! Thanks for the recipe! Happy New Year sweets! xo

Jaye

thanks for the recipe..must try it.. and i think the whole new year, new you "expectations" are so over-rated..mind you of course we know the beginning of anything is the perfect time to start but it should not cause angst! its supposed to be life-affirming..not anxiety affirming.. i think we get too caught up in the hype..me, i am slowing thinking about it but not much.....as for daily sit-ups, what an excellent start for you..simple, no equipment necessary and if you really want to, you can do them in your bed..love it!
