Another festival...

Yesterday there was another annual event festival in our village to donate money to the local temple. I had the job of lovely lady and yummy curry transporter. There were 7 ladies squished in the back (another one got in after the photo!)..just when you think no more can fit, along comes another one! So we had all the human traffic along with 3 humungo pots of curry and a tub of rice!
Watched the whole process of making the coconut milk then adding the lemon grass, salt, fresh tumeric, sugar and pork, and possibly other stuff that I missed when I was chasing a 3 year old around! Apart from the pork, it was scrumalicious! All the food at the temple was free, and by boyo was there a truck load of it. At a guess I would say there were at least 50 pots of different curries, noodles and Thai salads on offer. Did I mention it was ALL free??!
