You can find both canned coconut milk and red curry paste in the international aisle at most grocery stores. And they can be stored for months unopened in your cupboards and for a week or more in the fridge after opening.

Canned foods mean less prep and year-round availability, making healthy, homemade meals a reality, more often. A well-stocked pantry helps you get through the week with creative meals you can feel good about serving your family and friends.

Tip: If you want your sauce extra spicy, you can swap the red curry paste for green curry paste.

Are you a fan of Thai food? Even totally inauthentic homemade Thai food? Do you keep canned coconut milk in your pantry like I do?

My aha moment!

I found my style and was able to bring our small space together for our family of 8! My aha moment was when you talked about undertones! That was the moment when I could bring everything together.

Falling in love with our home again

My ah-ha moment was when I realized I was going about things all the wrong way. I loved the house but it didn't feel like home. BUT now because of your course...I am falling in love with our home all over again.

Love this idea!

Orbs are such a great decor item to add to a space. Staining the hoops really gives them a vintage feel. Thanks for the inspiration.
