Have you read anything by Ariana over at the And Here We Are blog yet? If you haven’t, today’s the day! My friend Ariana currently lives in the UK, but she has traveled all over the world and has so many great stories to tell about her adventures. She has a husband, Jeff, and a little girl, Amelia, that is as cute as a button and a pint-sized real foodie in the works. : )
In case you’re not convinced to visit her blog yet, here’s a picture of Ariana with a puppy dog. (Who can resist the temptation of great recipes and stories, combined with a picture of a puppy dog?!)
Tonight, I made Ariana’s delicious “Warming Coconut Chicken Curry.” I’ve been meaning to make it for almost a week now, and I’m so glad that I did. I altered her original recipe only slightly by adding a dash of cayenne and a parsnip.
I really enjoyed trying a different type of curry than I normally cook. And I was glad to have another great chicken recipe. This meal only took me twenty minutes to prepare and set to simmering, 45 minutes to simmer, and then 5 minutes to eat! Just kidding, I took my time with this one and savored every bite. Mmmmm…. We took Ariana’s advice and ate it over wide cabbage ribbons that I sautéed for one minute in butter and black mustard seed. Some pictures of how it turned out are below.
