Thai night.

On Friday nights, Brigette, Tom, Amelia and Christopher go to kids club. Usually Sam and Madeline are both working so it is just Steve, Joseph and I for tea. Tonight, Christopher wanted to stay home so I decided to cook a couple of meatless dishes.

We had Thai curry corn soup and fettuccine Marinara.

This is the curry corn soup. It was delicious. Oh and it did boil over just before I got the corn in.

To make,

3 tspns red curry paste.
400mls coconut milk.
1.5 cups chicken stock.
1 can creamed corn.
1 can corn kernels.

In a saucepan, cook the curry paste till fragrant. Add the coconut milk and stock. Bring to the boil and add the cream corn and corn kernels.

Heat through and serve. Put diced tomato, onion and coriander on top.

For the Marinara.

400 grams fettuccine
1 onion.
1 tbspn olive oil.
1 jar pasta sauce
2 tbspns dill
600 marinara mix.
dash of Tabasco sauce.
(I used chilli because we didn't have any Tabasco).

Place fettuccine noodles in boiling water and boil for 6-8 minutes.
While it is cooking, start making the sauce.

dice the onion and cook in olive oil for about 5 minutes.

Add dill and pasta sauce and bring to the boil.
Add marinara mix and simmer for 5 minutes or until marinara is cooked.

Add Fettuccine and enjoy.

Our sons Tom and Christopher and our daughter Amelia are type one diabetics. We pray everyday for a cure. We do not want one by illicit means though so don't support any organisation that contributes to Embryonic Stem Cell Research.
