Kitchen (Mis)Adventure - Thai Red Curry, or is it?

How's this for a fail? I just tried to make Thai Red Curry using Tom Yum paste. Why the hell do the packets look the same??? I was in a rush while shopping and I grabbed the red packet next to the packet of Green Curry paste (which is, unsurprisingly, green).

It's not actually the first time I've made that mistake but in the past I realised my error before I left the supermarket. This time I didn't notice my error until I was ready to add it to the wok. I suppose it wasn't too bad in the end. It still tasted similar just a little bit sour and not as spicy. It will be interesting to see if hubby notices the difference.


  1. I just saw your comment on Faux Fusia and it made me laugh, so I thought I'd pop over to say hello. Your little one is a doll and just a few days older than my youngest son! This 6-9 month age is one of my favorite phases.

  2. Hi Kate! It's nice of you to say hello. It's also nice to know that people read my blog other than my husband and friends whom I have coerced to read it. I'm really enjoying this phase and aren't June babies the best? :)
