Like most mornings, we rose with the aroma of freshly brewing coffee as our Vermont morning routine unfolded – now, comfortably seated outside in our Adirondack chairs with the sun still hidden by Northeast Mountain. We were shaded until about eight o’clock as we solidified our plans for the day. We have a fairly full schedule that includes painting, cleaning, and transporting a cord of wood into the garage in preparation for the winter months. And, the wood must be split for the wood burning oven – Kay often prepares her Sunday Sauce and homemade soup there in the winter!
We’re not really a breakfast couple, but we were both a little hungry this morning. Kay had made some incredible Thai food the other day that we didn’t have and thought, “why not.” Consider this for breakfast, Thai Vegetable Green Curry over rice – tofu, eggplant, red onion, ground chicken with a spring onion garnish. Well, it’s more than a garnish; it’s another unique flavor that completes the dish. We don’t even have this in Bangkok when visiting family! I cannot begin to tell you how delicious this was and a great way to begin a physically demanding day!
