Curry in the Country

It is crazy around here! Tonight's supper is still a work in progress, but I wanted to let you know I haven't dropped off the planet. If we eat at home it has to be from the crockpot and it has to be in the crock before 8 a.m. and eaten after 6. It needs to be held in the lap or eaten on the bed. Such fun! It has been over two months now since the storm. Ugh.

Today's meal fit the bill, although I need to tweak it because too much of the flavor cooked out. I will save the recipe for another try. Just in case you were wondering and want to tweak for yourself, here are the basics. After all, who knows when I will be back in my kitchen for good? I added a package of country style pork ribs, all the curry powder I had (about a teaspoon, and I know it needs more), 2 teaspoons of red curry paste, a can of whole Roma tomatoes and a can of coconut milk. I think next time, I will reserve half the can of coconut milk to make a sauce to pour over the rib meat. Next time, I promise.

Until then, let me tell you how happy I am to show you that we have walls and ceilings again. Woohoo. This will be the first night since the storm I will not be looking out our framework when I turn out the lights for bed. Walls and ceilings are still  not all in upstairs, but their is better insulation than we had before. Plus then I don't have to see that upstairs before I turn in...do I? Trying to keep positive here. The guys are doing very nice work. I like my contractors and that is saying something. In fact today, one wanted to know more about my e-book, since he is a diabetic. I am thinking we can work a trade here...

After the kitchen gets back together, it is definitely time to get stricter with the diet. Too many cheats for me eating out. I don't feel as good. I am trying to keep my kitchen routine going, but it is very hard to eat at home when your kitchen is a disaster area! It is even harder to rely on fast food for healthy choices. Come on, contractors! Here's a snapshot of what it looks like today.
