Sometimes I’d rather be lazy and stop cooking. I’d get by on take out, and frozen dinners, and chips and salsa, and ice cream. I don’t want to stand in the kitchen. I’m tired and busy – with work and training. And I’m hot… Whine whine whine.
But the problem is that I just really like real food. I feel better when I eat it. So this summer it’s all about easy stuff. One pot things that can be eaten different ways.
I bring you my versatile curry. I used ground chicken, because it was in the freezer, but this could easily be a vegetarian dish. Actually most things were already in my freezer or pantry. Perhaps you can use it a littlespring board for you own cooking imagination.
First I started cooking some rice (1.5 cups or was it 2?).
I fried up some old veggies – an onion, bell pepper, and carrots.
I added shriveled garlic and ginger let it fry a bit. Then added a crap load of curry. Then added the ground chicken.
Served as lettuce wraps with cilantro!
Or later as an unattractive but perfectly yummy mash up of all the things.
Or I could have skipped the rice and used it as a sandwich filling…
