2013, Day 49 - Dreams of amok

When I look at this woman and what is sitting in front of her all I can think of is a rich curry.  Pumpkin, tamarind, banana flowers, and what I suspect is palm sugar would make a wonderful hearty meal.  Maybe add a little fish and cauliflower and you're set with a good winter meal.  A typical Cambodian amok would not have all those ingredients but it is a fish curry and the national dish.  I ate it every few days and never got tired of it, everyone adds their own special touch and some are better than others but all were delicious.

Our temperatures are creeping back into the thirties again and there is rain on the forecast.  It makes for some chilly days but there are signs of spring all around.  Still, it makes me want to plan another trip somewhere warm.  I know I just got back from Cambodia a couple months ago and I thought the heat was oppressive but the grass is always greener, right?
