So, read up and be sure to come back to this post to leave all your comments!
My little sister got into town yesterday and we have just been having a ball! It is SO MUCH FUN having her here. We are bound to stay up late, eat too much and laugh A LOT. Once we got back from the airport it was lunch time and this is what we came up with!

I am so impressed with this lunch, I can’t even wait to tell you all about it! I always get sick of the same old lunches and this certainly fit the bill of out of the ordinary. I loved ALL the tastes and textures in this dish and so did my sister: the creamy coconut milk, the spicy curry, the fresh vegetables, the sweet toasted coconut, and the crunchy almonds. YUM. All the flavors I love. Actually, I tend to love ALL flavors so my opinion shouldn’t count a whole lot. But my sister and my husband loved this. And, after you cook your chicken, this all comes together in about 10 minutes. How about that! A really great lunch that everyone will love!Don’t forget to check out the giveaway and follow me on google, twitter and facebook!
