Chili Paste with Holy Basil



Today was a wonderfully relaxing day. I spent most of the day organizing my studio room, Im quite excited I love my new house. I have so much space to utilize. I have 2 huge tables in the middle of my room for drawing on one side and "office-y" stuff on the other, or to have friends over to draw with. I set up a little sewing area in the open closet. I dont really sew but I do have a machine and lots of fabric so Im hoping I will start to now that I can have it all setup and ready to use. There is a large work in progress (approx 4' x 8') I have tacked to my wall so when I have alot of energy I can work on that. And I even have a super comfy couch in the corner with plenty of floor space in front where I belly danced tonight. And that's merely one room out of my entire house! The rest I'm still setting up, but I've waited to get to do this since I was a little girl.

However my camera situation is not very good at the moment so all I could do was take a picture from my computer. I promise to post more later! (oh and Chili Paste with Holy Basil was what I had with dinner tonight, it was very tasty)

Hi there, just stumbled over here from...ummm...somewhere, and thought I'd say "hello!"

All right, so what's the recipe for Chili paste and Holy basil??

Hi! Chili Paste with Holy Basil is actually an indonesian sauce you can buy from most asian grocery stores. I simply used it as marinade for some beef and rice noodles I was having for dinner. One of my friends actually bought it for me and I had tried it for the first time that night, it was fantastic!

Ah, okay...I'll have to see if I can find some down here. Love me some sriracha, so a new spicy addition would be great!

Tiphoni said...

Mmmm I love Sriracha too. In my pantry I have Sriracha, Sambal Oelek, Gochujang, four different types of ground red peppers, Chili paste with garlic, Chili Paste with holy basil, not to mention tabasco and franks red hot and Im sure a few others that have slipped my mind. I definately love my spicy sauces :)
