Recipe For Tuna Green Curry

Dave and I have been very busy after work each night doing the wiring for the house we are building. It has been quite a task as the electrician we paid to do the work did a really bad job. We have had to cut into the concrete slab in the kitchen to sort out a problem and Dave eventually bought a nylon fish line to get around the corners where the electrician had made tight turns. The electrician has also made one of our plug points a light switch and the light switch the plug point. Thankfully Dave was able to swap them around behind the fireplace. We are missing a light switch in the kitchen even though it is on the electrical plans he worked off. The hardest job so far has been getting the wires down to the braai. This was the first bit of wiring Dave wanted to do as we need to get the wiring done for the swimming pool. Once the wiring for the swimming pool is complete we can get the garden leveled off and I can start planting. So, each night Dave has come home and we have worked, which has meant supper has to be an easy affair and not take too long to cook. This is one dish that takes no time at all and moreover, it was really tasty. Add more green curry paste if you like things hot, this curry was very mild.

    1. I can also not stand it when people don’t do something properly, or finish what they have started. But with the building project, I have learnt that is more the norm 🙂

  10. Sounds lovely and those veggies in there..yum! Wish I could send Big Man over to sort out your problems..he usually deal with pylons, but he knows his stuff! What a pain to have had the job done so incompetently even after working off plans and now having to put it all right yourselves.

  12. Builders are the worst – and all the other counterparts like electricians that go with it. I have yet to hear or have a good experience. I bet you cannot wait to get settled now. 😀
    What an awesome curry.
    🙂 Mandy
