Spring Has Sprung Rolls

Spring Rolls!

…Well spring is almost here. Who knows, we might get another “snow day” before it actually gets warm, but it’s things like having brunch out on a patio, sharing a coffee in the park in the middle of the day, and an evening of making spring rolls that make it feeeeeel like spring has sprung! Oh and blogging on the roof :D

Spring is also a time for new adult goals…at least that’s what we decided after the spring rolls. If you’re somewhere around 25, hopefully you’ve already gotten here, but these are the sorts of things that I think will make me feel more adult:

I haven’t made curry in such a long time, and this one was delicious. A little spicy and creamy – from the pumpkin purée and coconut milk – with a heartiness from the butternut squash and a fresh burst from the tomatoes and shrimp.

I’m headed out to California for a couple of weeks, and I’m so excited, I can barely contain myself! Leaving behind the chilly weather where this curry makes sense and headed to the land where drinks by the pool still make sense :)

Buuuuut I thought I’d leave you with this wonderful curry to warm up! :) Caitlyn and I mostly followed the recipe, except we cut out a cup of the broth for a slightly thicker curry. We also added the squash in when we added in all the liquid and once that was cooked, added in the shrimp! We topped it with shredded coconut and cilantro. Enjoy!!!
