For Once and for All

Oh for crying in the mud.  For the
last time, I am *not* preg– oh, what's the use?  You people won't
believe me anyways.  Please send all baby shower presents in the
form of Walmart gift cards.

Despite my phenominally ugly mood this week, I must tell you that today
held an exceptional bright spot when I went to the grocery store and
was able to load up on a plethora of curry.  While Michigan has my
contempt on account of its ridiculous compulsion to yeild itself to snow, I
do give it points for carrying an abundance of curry in its stores
(even tho they did not have medium or hot — mild still works nicely).

mmmmmmmmmmmmm… true love.

    I for one do believe you are not expecting. People are always asking me that. : )

    Congratulations on finding the curry, I know it was long awaited.

    Hope your trip was lovely!

    You better stick with mild…otherwise it might bother the baby. How exciting…a Christmas baby! Oh wait…when exactly are you due? I suggested an online shower to Nancy. So good to see others like the idea too! I know after you adjust and get some rest you will be excited about Booger Daisy Igger Coots oh whatever! too! I still think you should name it Goat!

    Bootie bells! bootie bells!

    Booties all the way

    Oh what fun it is to tease

    Jen I-G all day!

    I’m sorry about your moods! I’ve been really struggling with mine, too. We should be neighbors, so we could help to lift each other up! (((((HUGS))))) sandi

    So are we having chicken curry Friday night? I’m dropping ALL the kids off that night anyway on the way to Answers in Genesis, so can we just come EARLY for curry? You have not made us any in AGES.

    And to think that I thought you were talking about actually MAKING curry from you know, curry powder! Wow, Jen. A packaged curry sauce. You have now deflated all of my hopes and dreams in your culinary skills. Especially after the delicioso salad you brought to Amy’s earlier this month. *sigh*

    Whatever will I do???

    That was the BEST salad…

    My mouth has been watering for it. I’ve even tried to recreate it.

    BTW, remember Coie made the salad… LOL

    Of course you know that’s not real curry!!!!

    If you are nice I could bring you real Garam Masala next year when we come home……

    You’d have to be really, really nice to me though 😉

    Ooh, that code thing just messed me up!

    I just asked you if you needed a blog-quest map thingy for finding your way over to my blog for the CONTEST winners, you know, for your non-existant pre-named baby with the gender contingency built in, but THEN I forgot to do the doofy code and lost all my humorous drivel. Guess I need a map myself.

    Read the blog here, most humorous one:

    I didn’t get one lousy nomination for humorous. Can you believe it? Just for “inspriational.” Man, I am BUMMED.

    Love Curry?

    Hi love your blogs! I live in Thailand where I COULD eat curry everyday, but I had to taper. It will put on the pounds if you use coconut milk like we do. The Japanese version uses water.

    The one you are showing on your site looks like it may be Japanese variety.

    Do you like Thai Curry? If so, you can make your own curry paste and then add to your chicken or whatever and have curry when ever you want. We have three main types of curry. Green, Red and Yellow.

    Here is a recipe for the yellow curry paste

    makes about 1 cup but you only need 1Tbls. to make 2 cups of curry

    1 teaspoon cumin seeds

    1Tablespoon Coriander seeds

    3 white peppercorns or 1 t. ground white pepper

    1/4 cup small dried red chilies, split and seeded

    4 cloves garlic

    4 shallots

    1T. ground tumeric

    1 T. galanga

    1/4 cup minced lemon grass

    1t. fresh lime zest

    1t. shrimp paste (optional)

    1 t. salt or fish sauce

    1T. oil

    toast the seeds over fire in a wok for 2 to 4 min. remove. roast peppercorns in the same manner. remove. toast the chilies till dark spots appear but do not blacken Remove. roast garlic (sliced) and shallots(sliced) one at a time in the same manner. remove combine all into food processor and blend till smooth. to store: divide into 2 T. portions in plastic bags and freeze. paste keeps up to 3 mo.

    to make the curry from the paste:

    1 T. oil

    1 minced shallot

    1 clove garlic minced

    1 T. curry paste

    1 cup coconut milk

    1 cup chicken stock or water

    2 T. fish sauce

    2 T. sugar

    pinch of ground turmeric

    Heat oil in saucepan, stir fry meat a bit in the oil add the shallots, garlic, and curry paste allow to sizzle for 15 seconds. Stir in 3 T. of coconut milk. allow to bubble for one minute. add the remaining milk, stock and season. stir and let simmer for 5 min. If you add potatoes and carrots you can just add the stock and season and then add the remaining milk in at the end when the veggies are tender. you can use tofu for the meat or veggies like eggplant, onion, green beans etc…

    hope you enjoy!

    Love, Julie
