In the picture
By the way, that scary looking device atop my blog page is galangal. I bought that particular beast on New Year's Eve, to make my missus her favorite tom kha gai coconut soup. I have really very little idea what galangal even is. I'm more interested in the notion that I'm able to actually procure it within 15 minutes drive of my house than I am of its origins. Funky-looking, ain't she? If you'd like to know more, click here and then click somewhere else. Even Wiki seems at a loss about this little monster. Photo, as always, by Kelly Kurt - she of the thom kha.
