Curry in the Country
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.
