Nothing in the world is more comforting than a big bowl of curry, in my humble yet very correct opinion. Curry is what I want to eat for my last meal. And since I’m a realist and know that I could pass on at any moment, I try to consume curry as often as possible. Which is problematic since my husband can’t do coconut milk. It’s a sticking point in our marriage. Since it was my birthday this week, I went to town on curry. Then had it for leftovers. Then had it again for lunch today. And will eat it again tomorrow. That way, if I’m on my death bed at any point in the near future, I won’t have any regrets. Life is all about choices and I choose curry.

Honestly, what the hell am I even talking about?

PaleOMG Red Thai Curry Gnocchi

I feel like I haven’t talked things out with you in a while. It has been go-go-go over here. Over the weekend I was recording videos for my upcoming bodyweight program that will launch in May, then we had birthday celebrations, curry, and then I launched my newest PaleOMG activewear collection, all while battling acne that refuses to quit. Quarantine acne is REAL. And it can go straight to hell. And with all of this craziness going on, I am all kinds of behind with talking to you guys. I haven’t been able to respond to social media comments or messages, and I haven’t even been able to keep up with comments here on the blog. Quarantine life has made me busier than ever and I’m kind of in to it. Sure, I would love to go to a restaurant and actually sit in it, but I also thrive when never having to leave my home. I’m a Taurus. Taurus need nice things, food, and social separation.

How’s quarantine life treating you? It’s been so interesting talking to all my friends and hearing how they are dealing with it. Some are going insane and feeling so bored or lonely, and others are thriving. Nothing much has changed in my day other than not being able to sit in my favorite coffee shop. But I still go in there with a mask on and get my favorite coffee and treat to support them. I do miss going to malls, which is weird because malls are the worst. But one thing I am trying to do while in quarantine is get our outdoor area feeling welcoming and comfortable. So I just bought these Patio Egg Chairs and this Striped Modern Rug. Now I need to find a sweet coffee table and some sort of artwork to go on the wall of our house, behind the chairs. Any idea? I’m not a big tchotchke kind of guy and I need something that will hold up to the elements. Whatcha got? You guys always have the best ideas!

Now excuse me…I need my afternoon curry snack.

  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 8 ounces sliced button mushrooms
  • 5.6 ounces red curry paste*

  3. Add the red curry paste to the pan and use a spatula to mix around the hot pan for 1 minute. Then add the coconut milk, 1/4 teaspoon salt, lime leaves, and lemongrass. Mix to combined then bring to a low boil and let reduce for about 10 minutes.

    Alright, you need to open a restaurant or start selling this for people to buy in-stores. This looks fantastic!

    1. juli says:

      hahahahaha i don’t think owning a restaurant is the best during these times

  2. Krista says:

    Love your curry recipes!! Where do you find lime leaves?

    1. KG says:

      Wondering the same thing! Seems like you’re using fresh…all I can find is dried…?

    2. juli says:

      at my local whole foods, but asian markets always carry them as well!

    1. juli says:

      ooooo that’s a super fun idea Liz!! thank you!!

  3. Nancy says:

    Is there anything you can sub for the lime leaves or will it work to just leave them out? Lime zest, lime juice?

    1. juli says:

      lime zest would be a great option!

  4. Lauren says:

    I am going too try with sweet potato gnocchi because TJ is out of the cauliflower every time I go 🙁

  5. Leigha Marie says:

    This was so great (even omitting a few of the garnishes I didn’t have in the fridge) and so easy to make!! Def adding it to my recipe rotation!!

    1. juli says:

      awesome!! so glad you liked it Leigha!

  6. Liz says:

    Maybe a metal piece of wall art? They have some nice ones at Target.

  7. Andrea says:

    This is amazing! Honestly, the sauce is so good I licked the plate clean! We didn’t have lemongrass and lime leaf and ran out of Thai paste (so used 1/3 of what the recipe called for) and it was still divine! I can only imagine how good it would be with all the ingredients.

  8. Sherry says:

    Loved the veggie curry. Sauce was excellent. The Trader Joe’s gnocchi didn’t really do anything for me in this recipe so I’ll omit that next time.

  9. Dominique Barnett says:

    Delicious and so easy!

      so glad you liked it, Dominique!!
