I was feeling a bit meh the past day but my friend @sweatandrepeatla reminded me that I can change my mindset by focusing on some thing else - and that something else is getting outdoors for me 🌸 Spent the afternoon at @the_flower_fields and all is right in the world again 😊 #flowerfields#carlsbadflowerfields#acolorstory#livecolorfully
Thai Basil Chicken with Snow Pea tips and Coconut rice.
Prep time: 7 minutes
Cook time: 25 minutes
I was really looking forward to this meal because I love Thai basil and I am generally fond of most chicken and rice pairings.
All the food for this recipe was in perfect condition, the one thing I didn’t love was that my ginger was cut and loose in the bag and I had to cut a bunch off cuz it was dry. It could be easily remedied if it were placed in little bag since it was cut through the middle or just cut so the middle wasn’t all exposed.
This dish was quick and simple to make. The Thai basil and the coconut are a great combo and I love the pea shoot tips!
I followed the recipe and instructions exactly as they were written.
My daughter loved the chicken and the veggies as did I, however we both found the coconut rice a bit too heavy on the coconut. In the future I’d halve the amount of coconut milk used and possibly add a pinch of red pepper flakes to it while cooking.
One other thing was that it was a just a touch too salty for my taste but perfect for my kids. If you aren’t crazy about salt don’t add any to the chicken when it’s cooking cuz the soy sauce and fish sauce get it there on their own.
I also added some extra veggies to my dish (red and yellow bell peppers) because it’s had them on hand and wanted the variety.
All in all a great dish that I’d make again with a few modifications.
7.5/10 FORKS .
Maybe this will be my last catch up picture from Colorado, maybe it won’t be. [Hint: it probably won’t be...] Still can’t believe I stood on top of that mountain for 0.50 seconds before staggering back to the car as my body rebelled against me. 💁🏻♀️🤷🏻♀️😂😒
Seriously SO happy it's Friday and the weekend is almost here!! Today I'm knocking out some editing, cleaning, running errands, and then soaking up as much of this glorious sunshine as possible!

I personally love to travel solo but also enjoy good company with the right person. Do you prefer to travel solo or with someone? Maybe even a group? This is Stockholm last November 🇸🇪
