Massaman curry paste is a mixture of different spices, lemongrass, peanuts, onions, and garlic - to name a few. Most of the ingredients are pretty common and easy to find, with the exception of lemongrass. If you can't find it, I think you could probably just leave it out and the recipe would still be delicious.
Did I mention that last week I was able to finally perfect my apple crisp while the baby was sleeping? Since the beginning of the summer I've been on a quest for the ultimate apple crisp, which to me means big juicy chunks of apples, a little tart a little sweet, slightly soft with a little crunch, bathed in a thick sweet syrupy liquid topped with a buttery, nutty crumble, but not too crumbly.
