The resolution to try a new recipe every day is harder to keep than the resolution to go to the gym every day. The resolution to eat out lots and watch more television is going much better. . .
That’s not to say I haven’t been spending time in the kitchen. It just hasn’t been too successful. I did invent the yummiest — but ugliest — way to use leftovers. I baked refrigerated hash browns with left over chili and Pace Four Cheese dip. The secret is the cheese dip. If you haven’t discovered this, head straight to the salsa aisle. It’s spicy and cheesy and makes everything better. So I layered the ingredients in a baking dish, baked at 350 degrees for 45 minutes, and had a wonderful (yet somehow tacky) casserole.
My attempt to make masaman curry was nowhere near as successful. I mixed a can of light coconut milk, 1 cup chicken broth, and 2 tbs curry powder. I poured that over chicken thighs, potatoes (the canned whole kind) and onions in a baking dish. I put it in the oven at 400 degrees for an hour. It was a complete bust. Edible, but definitely NOT masaman curry. And now I have such a craving for good thai food . . .
