Aby-a-Day – 15 February: No touchy fishie! (Thursday Things)

Last week, I found a lovely deal on herring (sill in Swedish) – 75kr a kilo! I wanted to use it to make something Thai with rice noodles, and I found a delicious recipe for khanom jeen nam ya/i>, a delicious fish curry designed to use a strong-flavoured, oily fish such as barracuda, mackerel, or herring.

While we were eating it, we left the remainder in the wok, with what we thought was a heavy enough lid on it to protect the delicious fish curry inside.

We. Were. Wrong.

Alfred managed to get under the lid and used his grabby Aby hands to reach into the wok and eat my delicious fish curry.

He clearly enjoyed it. Lemongrass, kaffir lime leaves, coconut milk, and all.

And then he went in for more. Reach…

…and eat.

“Don’t you tell me ‘NO,’ mom…”

Reach again…

…and eat again.

Rinse and repeat. Until we caught him, anyway.

He is shameless. But it wasn’t all him. In the photos, you can see Jacoby in the background…well he had a slightly greasy head later on. I am pretty sure that he is the one who pushed the lid off!
