Terry’s Thai Curry with Butternut

Our friend Terry made us this super tasty meal a while back and he was kind enough to share his recipe with me, thanks Terry. 🙂  I made a slight adjustment here and there and served it with basmati rice and pappadums.  It was an absolutely delicious meal which I am sure will be one of those recipes we serve to family and friends for many years to come.
