Aloha Rise & Grind

Life is a journey. Enjoy the scenery.

Today marks the night before the first day of school. My husband and I both thought we would never see the day when our kids would be going back to school, but here we are and no further school announcements postponing it to a later date have been made.

I briefly thought about making a big dinner since it is kind of worth celebrating the kids going back to school, but decided the simpler route was better. I was leaning towards my old standby soup, that I’ll share next week, but had a change of mind, as I often do when it comes to what’s for dinner. Besides, my husband wanted to try a different soup of the Asian persuasion. So here I am going outside of my comfort zone and trying something new. This was my first time cooking with curry, but I’m excited to say that it turned out well. It has a pleasant aroma that leaves your family wondering what you’re cooking up for dinner. My hope for you is that they’ll beg you to make it again.

I was going to name the soup exactly what it is, but it made for an extremely long title: Medium-Spicy Thai Coconut Chicken Soup, so I opted for Red Curry Chicken Soup. It tends to roll off the tongue easier, right?
