Red Curry Chicken Noodle Soup

bowl of red curry with chicken, noodles and basil

When the frost starts nipping at my nose THIS is the bowl of soup I want to wrap myself around.  It will warm you from the tip of your toes to the top of your hand, pretty much like that other soup commercial.

Except this is homemade, tastes waaaaay better than canned and takes just a tiiiiiny bit over 30 minutes to make.
