Sweet Potato Drink (นมรสมันเทศ)

Wow! It's already 24th January. Time does fly away. How many of you are still sticking to your New Year's resolutions? I am still holding on to mine, but it hasn't been easy. One of my resolutions is to incorporate more healthy food into my diet and one of my favorite new way to do that is with this delicious sweet potato drink. 

Sweet potato drink, today's recipe, is very simple drink just the way I see and love it. I know this is not very common way to eat sweet potatoes. It might even seem a little strange. But believe me this drink is perfect with its sightly sweet, mellow and rich. Besides, sweet potatoes are high in vitamin A, vitamin B5 and B6. Plus they 're naturally fat-free and have fewer calories than white potatoes. What not to love here? 

So what 's in the recipe? I purposely didn't use a large amount of sugar. You can adjust the amount of sugar to your taste. The rest is pretty simple. Just mix all the ingredient in a small pot, bring it to simmer. When the sugar dissolves completely, the drink is ready to serve. Enjoy! 

1/2 cup mashed purple sweet potato   
200 ml. milk 
2 tablespoon rock sugar

Khanom Tuay (Coconut Milk Custard)

Khanom Tuay, ขนมถ้วย (Coconut Milk Custard), is one of very common, traditional  and delicious coconutty Thai desserts. The name Khanom Tuay literary means "dessert in a bowl" in Thai derived from the fact that it is made in a small bite size porcelain cup.
 The dessert has  2 layers: the sweet chewy coconut milk based layer on the bottom with the thick coconut cream on top. 

Stir Fry Thai Sukiyaki

With all the recipes I have on hand, I am still at a loss at times on what to cook. I usually defrost something the night before and think about what to do with it in the following day. So I tend to cook in a hurry in the morning and the best and quickest way for me to get the breakfast ready is to make a stir fry.
Yesterday I bought a large tray of frozen shrimp from nearby supermarket because it looked really appetizing and dirt cheap. I defrost some and made stir fry Thai sukiyaki with shrimp this morning.
