My Pizza Stone Tastes Funny and How to Wash It

I absolutely love my baking stone (I have a square pizza stone similar to this one because it is more versatile than a round one.) I use it all the time and for pretty much everything I put in the oven. ( Disclosure: I am including affiliate links for your convenience .) Which I learned is a mistake. The food I bake on my pizza stone is starting to taste weird. The stone smells and smokes when I put it in a hot oven. Why? Because baking and pizza stones are porous. That’s how they do their job of creating perfectly baked bread and pizza crusts. But the porous stone can also absorb and trap the fats and oils in the food baked on top of it. Over time, the oil heats and releases into the lovely seasoning you created by baking on the stone and makes your pizza or bread taste awful and/or fill your kitchen with eye watering smoke. Bleach! In other words, I should have used a metal baking sheet to make oven baked French fries and not my baking stone. Oops. Save this tutorial to

Thai Red Curry Shrimp Recipe


Stir fries are one of my quick go to meals. Chop up whatever vegetables and meat you have on hand, throw it in a frying pan with some sauce while rice or rice noodles cook and you have dinner. It’s a great quick meal.


I have Thai Basil growing in a pot on my patio. I’m experimenting with it and some ready made Thai sauces because I’ve never been to Thailand or even a good Thai restaurant so I’m not sure what real Thai tastes like.
Pin this post for later! 


But my recipe tastes good, so that what counts for me.

Thai Red Curry Shrimp

1 can of coconut milk (be careful. Coconut milk is a saturated fat. If you’re trying to watch the saturated fat, which I am, you might not want to add this ingredient or try this recipe every week.)
2 tablespoons red curry paste
1 bag of frozen shrimp (unless you’re lucky enough to get fresh)
A variety of chopped vegetables – bean sprouts, snow peas, mushrooms, bamboos shoots, peppers, carrots etc. (I just look in the fridge and see what I have)
¼ cup Thai basil (or regular fresh basil if you don’t have Thai. If you’re using dried herbs, use half this amount.)
2 tablespoons fish sauce

1. Mix curry paste, brown sugar, and  coconut milk in a bowl



2. Stir fry chopped vegetables and liquid mixture until the vegetables are almost tender crisp.










3. Add shrimp to the mixture and cook until the shrimp turns pink.




4. Serve over rice noodles or rice.
  
Eat. Enjoy. Repeat.
