Coriander Thai dreams and Irish dreamholders

At the end of the day (see end of previous post), I like to think good thoughts about tomorrows. One nice option is a Thai meal in the near future. Here is a pot of coriander from Schilliger Garden Center in Switzerland, in a cache-pot, or flowerpot, from Nicholas Mosse in Ireland. Each one makes me smile. Put together they create a distinctly happy note. Put the Thai meal on a menu in the next day or two and we're sailing.

mmm...i'm a big fan of thai food, though i haven't found any real good recipes for a pad thai or green curry. fresh coriander is always amazing, probably much better than the stuff i buy at grocery stores.

I love both Thai food as well as coriander!! But wasn't aware that coriander is used in Thai food. Fresh coriander is a basic ingredient in Indian food though.

I just found the cookbook I was looking for, which talks about coriander as a basic ingredient in Thai cooking. Will now try to find their web site. I am on a coriander binge right now - even put it in a radish and cucumber sandwich yesterday, which was a little weird if interesting. Good thing I had no guests for lunch.
