Thai Red Curry Shrimp


One Year Ago:  Baked Lemon-Basil Haddock

For the remainder of the month (and part of the next), my life schedule is going to be crazy.  Between appointments, work, the end of the school year, family stuff and a soon-to-be addition to our family (my brother and sister-in-law), I really need quick and easy meals like this one.  This can be made in under 30 minutes and, if you are a fan of curry, I'm sure you'll love this.  Here's to keeping my blog smoothly running conjointly with the millions of other things I have planned!
