    Lovely! It reminds me of the beteald honeymoon my hubby and I took to Tuscany (after 10 years we made it there!) last summer. With four kids, a piece of art like this would be a daily reminder to us that Tuscany is waiting for us.. after we go broke putting the kids through school!

    This is such a great recipe.
    BUT …. have you ever tried it with the mild chicken curry paste and added left over chicken to it? It’s a must to try !!!
