Recipe: Thai Green Curry Soup

Home cooked dinners have been a challenge lately. Between working fiendishly on paintings for the Winter Bazaar of the Bizarre, writing reviews for all the awesome shows and albums I’ve enjoyed this fall, a new found love of jogging AND my full time job, I just don’t have enough hours in the day.

Like any normal person, my reaction was “that sounds delicious, let’s make that for dinner”. Since shark wasn’t readily available…
