I think about time with the turn of every new year. Time is the one thing I wish I had more of. My attempts to slow it, stop it, or turn it back are fruitless. Time is the ultimate leveler of the playing field. It can’t be bought or sold. 

The one thing we can control is how we choose to spend our time. That’s one of the reasons I love this recipe. Once all the ingredients are in the pot, set your timer and forget about dinner for 1½ to 2 hours. That time is yours to pour a glass of wine, cross things off your list, train for a marathon or hang with friends and family.

I’m all about a glass of wine and relaxing in a big cozy chair while the smell of this aromatic curry wafts through the air. Abraxas is the perfect wine for the times and it is fantastic with this dish. The aromatics and heat from Thai curries are fabulous with a wine like Abraxas. Its stone fruit and lime aromas with hint of spice and fresh, mouthwatering finish make it a perfect match. 

This curry can’t stop time but enjoying a nice warm bowl with a glass of Abraxas can make its passing pure pleasure.

Until the Next Wine….
