Carrot Coconut Chicken

It’s Sunday afternoon, the snow is coming down real bad and I enjoyed this noon with Thai carrot coconut chicken made by my hubby…

I woke up this morning so late at 12.30, okay that’s really afternoon 🙂 Oh yes! I love to cuddle up as late as possible. Looking out of the window I was excited and refreshed to see the snow showers hitting the ground so heavily and beautifully. Oh yes! snow showers always put a smile on my face and makes me go crazy. Here is a picture of my backyard wrapped up in snow…

Woke up really hungry and the first thing I thought was to order lunch for home delivery. Walking downstairs, it smelled really aromatic. As I entered the kitchen, to my surprise I found my hubby having some fun cooking. He was giving the final touches to Thai Carrot Coconut Chicken. When he served it I felt like a princess and I couldn’t have done anything more than indulge in the delicious Thai Carrot Coconut Chicken.
