Today’s announcement is that all of you need Prik Sod in your future.
I can’t think of anything cozier on a rainy winter day than Thai cuisine. My love for Thai food is everlasting. You all have to know how thrilled I am that I was able to create Prik Sod for the very first time in my own kitchen. My love for this dish was first discovered at The Bronze Buddha, a local Thai restaurant in my town.
Yes, rainy days need cozy don’t they? I have had a lot on my plate these days. Well not my plate in the literal sense, but I am hosting my niece’s bridal shower and it’s next weekend. I have been all consumed with bridal decor, floral arrangements, favors, menu choices, guest lists oh and dessert. I think you get the drift. On top of all that my big girl turns 27 today. So proud of her accomplishments. She is a registered nurse and about to embark on another position working with a Plastic Surgeon. I wish her a happy birthday and all the success in the world.
But taking just a wee bit of time out of my day to create this delicious Thai inspired dish was totally worth it. And really, it takes no time at all to infuse such great flavors into a chicken dish. I will say that if I had to make this over again, I would add either Thai basil or a bit of cilantro. Either way it was a true winner.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
