That's what we're having. How much coconut milk was in the can of coconut milk that you used? I think I may have put too much, because after 45 minutes, it's still awfully wet. I don't think this will adversely affect the flavour.

Thanks. I used a 400 ml can and it seems to have been the right amount.

Oh yeah, that was really tasty. Stirling really liked it too. This recipe is a keeper. I didn't have any red chilies, so I used some green ones. I'm not familiar with these particular chilies, so I only used three. They are about an inch to an inch and a half long, so I was a little wary of the heat level. I'll use four or five next time.

We'll have lemon mousse for dessert in about half an hour, when we have room for more food.

Pac, when I tended bar at a small chain Mexican restaurant, they served the best taco salad dressed with a combo of salsa and Catalina dressing, so good!

I grew up very close to Battle Creek where Dominos originated. It is good sauce, but there was a pizza joint near me called Volcano's Pizza. It was SO good.
We often have pizza on Friday night, but tonight was a munchie night. I put some frozen appetizers in the oven and had raw veggies with them. Then it was off to Culvers for the cruise in and some frozen custard.
