    Making a meal for 36? Wow… you’re braver than I am, especially making a Thai dish which I love. Kudos on using ‘fresh from the garden’ veggies. If people only knew how much better veggies were from a garden instead of a can.

      Ha, thanks. Yeah, the closer to just picked you are with vegetables, the better — the better for taste, the better for nutritional value, and the better for supporting local farmers. I grew up with Midwestern cooking, which meant vegetables either came canned, or were boiled to death. I’m grateful that times have changed, and especially that I’m in a place where there are lots of farmer’s markets and healthy produce stores.
