As a result of said stand-off, I've been whipping up some stuff I've been quite proud of, and last night was no exception.

This, ladies and gentleman, is my Thai on the Fly. I did the following:
I cooked up some Coconut Rice (you'll have to search Food Network for the recipe, because I don't have time to link that shizz up) and while that was going I started some oil heating in my dutch oven. I added green curry paste, a little bit of soy sauce, fish sauce, tamarind paste, and a dollop of ginger preserves (in lieu of fresh ginger). To this concoction I ladled in a little of the excess coconut milk that was still cooking with the rice, and then cooked some sliced chicken up in it.
Last but very not least, I used the only remaining fresh vegetable in my house, green onions, to garnish, and VOILA!
I will admit, the smell was potent and there were complaints from some whiners in the house, but both those whiners ate their chicken just fine.
