A New Friend

I’m finally settled in the new apartment and loving it. A friend of ours had asked us to baby sit her plant over the summer but recently returned and took it back. I didn’t think I would miss it very much, but I do. The apartment feels incomplete without it.

Per my usual after work routine, last night I went to Trader Joes to buy organic chicken and other ingredients for dinner and was seduced by the cutest thing ever – a Basil plant. How can I possible say no to fresh green leaves and strong herb scents at the price of $5.99?

The Basil plant inspired me to make green curry for dinner and now I have a friend again amidst the loneliness of a new city.


  1. what??? GREEN CURRY???? when are you getting your own Food Network show??? I love Green Curry! one of my faves! with extra coconut sauce of course! :)

  2. i'm going to look after a friend's plant soon. hope i won't miss it too much when it's gone :-D
