Valen-Thai Feast

Did you like what I did with the title there, Valen-Thai like valentine but with Thai put in it because that's what I cooked for me and Mercer for our Valentines dinner.....No, fine.
Me and Mercer arn't exactly rolling in money at the moment so I said I would cook a romantic meal for us instead of going out, so that's what I did and Thai food is what I cooked. I made some classic Phad Thai minus the prawns as fussy pants won't eat them and i also made a Panang curry and served it all with coconut rice, prawn dumplings(for me) and some little spring rolls.
To get supplies I went to my favourite oriental food market called 'Yum Yum' that I did a post on awhile back and got supplies. I'm afraid I did buy the panang curry paste, the phad Thai sauce, the dumplings and spring rolls ready made so there!

My little prawn dumplings frying away! I steamed them first then I like to fry them to make them all crispy on the outside and they are lovely.
