That looks extremely tasty Steve, nice one

Sounds good, TL. Thanks, I will look for it. I can probably get it at the Asian supermarket and I have wanted to go there for awhile now.

I usually buy a different brand of coconut milk which is super thick. I had cans of it behind this one, but am always in the habit of using up the old before the new and I didn't realize there was such a difference in the brands. The thick one is cheaper too!

We spent the night trying to comfort a distressed dog. I spent part of it sleeping on the floor. All is well but we all, including the dog, feel like we've been hit by a truck. Nights like that I'm glad we had leftovers. More prime rib, mac and cheese. I did grill some garlic, lemon and rosemary chicken breasts and made a salad. They had been marinating since last night and needed to be cooked. Bah humbug. =0)

I usually find it with West Indian food at the supermarket.

What was wrong with your dog, mmyap? Is he/she okay? I know about those all nighters up with the pets. Done it a few times. Hope you get a better sleep tonight.

Hmm, okay. Not sure if we have that section but I will look. I know the Asian Market covers just about every ethnicity of food so I immediately thought of there.

I made our traditional NYD dinner - pork roast with sauerkraut, carrots, and mashed potato.
