Ended up with the Panang curry, but not sure you could call it a real Panang. I made the curry and used a tip that the fellow at the Thai grocery store gave me and added peanut butter (chunky) to the mix. Added cubed chicken, but then got creative and added chopped up water chestnuts, honey, garlic and brown sugar. It was still Panang enough for DW, my oldest, and myself but sweet and peanut buttery enough for my son and my youngest daughter.
Reminded me of one we used to get on the North Side, certainly not a traditional Panang but yummy anyway, especially over brown rice!

Made zucchini slice for lunch, which I wouldn't make again without making a few alterations to the taste. It was okay but the recipe needs work I think.

For dinner, grilled lamb steaks with parsley and garlic, served with jacket potatoes with aioli and herbed fetta, tomatoes, Kalamata olives in balsamic vinegar.

Bilby, I had to look up jacket potatoes, and then zucchini slice, and then I had to look up lamington pan from the zucchini slice recipe. Fun

Last night we had a Greek-themed dinner party. I made a seafood cocktail appetizer with lemon, parsley and capers; Greek salad with red-wine vinaigrette; and chicken breasts stuffed with herb/garlic goat cheese and roasted red peppers (got that idea from someone here), and Greek potatoes. I got lucky and the Greek Orthodox Church was having a bake sale yesterday, so I bought an assortment of Greek pastries for dessert. Turned out great.

LOL - Glad you liked the work GG!!! You are more dedicated than I!

Didn't have a lamington pan so I made mine in star shapes!! (To me, lamingtons are for school drives. Always someone trying to flog 'em to you! No need to actually make 'em yourself, so no need for the pan!! ]
