A few weeks ago, Jerry, posted a recipe for Tilapia with Thai Coconut Curry Sauce that he originally got from Cooking Light. It looked so good, I knew I wanted to make it but always having the hardest time finding Red Curry Paste, I wasn't sure when. Then last weekend we popped into Dean and DeLuca and I saw the paste. I couldn't remember what I needed it for, but I knew I needed it, so I bought some. When I got home, and was planning our weekly menu, with fish for Friday because of Lent, I remembered, so ta da!
I know, I glopped on a lot more sauce than Jerry seemed to. Also, I didn't use Basmati rice but one of those Lundberg rice blends instead. All this along with some steamed sugar snap peas drizzled with a bit of sesame oil and toasted sesame seeds and that was one good dinner.
I'll post the recipe for those of you too lazy to check out Jerry's blog but you really ought to - lots of good stuff over there.

I've tried many recipes for Beef Wellington over the years, some with great results and some disasters. Once you get the whole puff pastry concept down, it's really not that hard to do and this one is one of our favorites. As a matter of fact, last night's was so good, we realized after we finished, we forgot to save a "taste" for Fala!
I don't make this often, usually about once a year, but it's also a great make-ahead if you're having company and who doesn't love puff pastry?

This week I got to choose but because I was late to pick, many types of salad had already been taken. I went with this recipe, that I made a few years ago, and then forgot about. I'm glad I resurrected it because everyone loved it, Beck even more so than my go-to Chicken Caesar Salad recipe. So this will be on the menu often this summer.
