When Big John and I lived in New Jersey, good Thai food was easy to find. We used to go out to dinner at Origins in Somerville, NJ at least 2 or 3 times per month. When they opened for lunch, I used to sneak down there. I loved their Thai Peanut Curry, and when I saw this recipe, it took me back. If you have been reading my blog, you all know that I miss the food in NJ and NY. I miss the diversity in cooking and I miss pizza and sandwiches too, but that is for another post!
