Thai Red Curry Chicken with Green Beans Recipe

I was going to make some quick adobo green beans with chicken tonight, but realized I forgot to buy more vinegar. Oops. Time to switch the seasonings up 🙄

Thought this sounded worth a try. Very easy and tasty! No coconut milk involved, just basically seasoning a simple stir fry with red curry paste. Apparently good with any kind of meat you want, or tofu. It would probably work great as just a green bean dish.

I already had some onion cut up, so it went in too. Frozen green beans worked fine as usual, and I added a little lime juice at the end since we basically never have the leaves.

Good enough results for the time and effort involved that I’d say this is a make again.

(Another version from Serious Eats, which looks lighter on the beans but pretty similar.)

Migrant Children in Texas Need Our Help


These 11 new BPAL perfumes buy legal aid for imprisoned migrant children

As you may have heard, children are being forcibly detained at the US/Mexico border by the thousands – 2,000 in six weeks, in fact.

BPAL wants to help. We’ve formulated an array of simple, elegant perfume blends to raise funds for RAICES (Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services), who are intervening to provide legal aid and reunite families. 

Since the Bible is being invoked in the White House’s defense of this barbaric practice (Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters that it is “very biblical to enforce the law”, and Attorney General Sessions invoked Romans 13 – the same Bible passage so often utilized in the past to justify slavery) we have decided to offer our own biblical commentary for those who may not have visited the book in a bit.

Each of the following scents have been inspired by timely, instructive passages in the Bible. What could be more goth than that?

Also, we implore you to help us spread the word on Facebook and Twitter. Our post on Facebook was blocked from getting a paid boost (which businesses have to use in order to reach all their followers) because we’re not authorized to buy “political advertisements.” Let that sink in for a moment: under the new rules, a series of products raising money for a legal aid charity is considered a political advertisement. And even if we become authorized to boost posts like these, they’ll be accompanied by some kind of “this is a political ad” disclaimer. 

So, reaching our core base will be more difficult for a bit. Will you help by sharing our posts, or drafting your own to share this link? (Tag us, so we can RT if possible!)

Below is the full list of scents, verses, and descriptions. There shall be no rest for the wicked on our watch! And hopefully a great deal of relief for suffering families thanks to your intervention, whether with a donation to RAICES directly, or a call to your elected official to make sure they know they can’t pin this particular atrocity on Good Book.

Thanks so much for reading. and for sharing!


He defends the cause of the fatherless and the widow, and loves the foreigner residing among you, giving them food and clothing.

EXODUS 22:21
Do not mistreat or oppress a foreigner, for you were foreigners in Egypt.

Myrrh, red currant, opoponax, and blackberry.

Now this was the sin of your sister Sodom: She and her daughters were arrogant, overfed and unconcerned; they did not help the poor and needy.

Blood musk and ashes.

JOB 31:32
The stranger did not lodge in the street; but I opened my doors to the traveler.

LUKE 10:25-37
On one occasion an expert in the law stood up to test Jesus. “Teacher,” he asked, “what must I do to inherit eternal life?”

“What is written in the Law?” he replied. “How do you read it?”

He answered, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’[c]; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’”

“You have answered correctly,” Jesus replied. “Do this and you will live.”

But he wanted to justify himself, so he asked Jesus, “And who is my neighbor?”

In reply Jesus said: “A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, when he was attacked by robbers. They stripped him of his clothes, beat him and went away, leaving him half dead. A priest happened to be going down the same road, and when he saw the man, he passed by on the other side. So too, a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side. But a Samaritan, as he traveled, came where the man was; and when he saw him, he took pity on him. He went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he put the man on his own donkey, brought him to an inn and took care of him. The next day he took out two denarii[e] and gave them to the innkeeper. ‘Look after him,’ he said, ‘and when I return, I will reimburse you for any extra expense you may have.’

“Which of these three do you think was a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of robbers?”

The expert in the law replied, “The one who had mercy on him.”

Jesus told him, “Go and do likewise.”

Go and do likewise: golden amber and saffron, white sandalwood, and clove.

See that you do not despise one of these little ones. For I tell you that in heaven their angels always see the face of my Father who is in heaven.

Wool-warm red sandalwood, coconut, strawberry, and blackcurrant.

But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.

White sandalwood, honey, and champaca.

MATTHEW 25:34-36
Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Enter, you who are blessed by my Father! Take what’s coming to you in this kingdom. It’s been ready for you since the world’s foundation. And here’s why:

I was hungry and you fed me,
I was thirsty and you gave me a drink,
I was homeless and you gave me a room,
I was shivering and you gave me clothes,
I was sick and you stopped to visit,
I was in prison and you came to me.’

PROVERBS 24:11-12

Blackened oudh, leather, labdanum, and oakmoss.
