Red Thia Chicken Curry

This is what was happening during the cooking process. 

These pictures are all kind of backwards, well maybe it would be more right if you went from bottom to top... anyway.  I really wanted to make this "Red Thai Duck Curry" that I found on the Pioneer woman's Site, but I didn't know where I was going to find duck, so I used chicken.  Overall the dish wasn't as good as I wanted it to be, I am wondering if I put too much ketchup.  It was good, I'm just not sure if it was worth all the ingredients I had to specially buy.
Because it was so much work, I did want to document it for you.  :)

So... I considered giving up on feeding Ava solids for a while, well I kind of did.  Anyway, we were with my sister in law Cherie the other day, and she fed Ava some gourmet oatmeal, blueberries, and yogurt all combined, and Ava was delighted, she LOVED it!  Then later that day, Cherie gave her some sweet potato with cinnamon, and apple juice in it, and she also loved that.  Soooo, I'm pretty sure she just doesn't like the bland food I give her, I mean who would?  I completely understand!  I'm sorry Ava I will work at making your food more tasty and delicious.
Another bonus is that I started giving Ava a sippy cup with a soft mouth piece, and she actually drinks out of it which is amazing to me, because she would never drink out of a bottle... this could open up new horizens for me... :)

Mexican Layer Dip

The other night for youh group and UFC fight night (and for the super bowl party I went to), I made a delicious Mexican dip, half with no cilantro for TJ.  Yum!
