  • I was going to cook curried chicken over spinach...but didn't have any spinach.  It called for raw chicken, but I cooked the whole chicken, took the meat off the bones and cooked the hell out of the bones to make some awesome chicken broth.  Didn't have any ginger either.  So it was time to improvise.  I added the apples because like like my curry to have a hint of sweetness.  It turned out pretty good. :)

  • chicken cut into bite sized pieces 
  • chicken stock
  •  cloves garlic, sliced
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 2 tsp curry powder
  • 1 medium sized onion, cut in half and sliced
  • lots of celery
  • 4 carrots
  • 4  potatoes, yellow ones, cut up like french fries
  • 2 large juicy apples, cut up
  • 1 can coconut milk
  • salt & white pepper to taste

My carpet still isn't dry upstairs.  I guess it's no wonder since I cleaned it for 5 and a half hours.    It actually squished when I walked on it.  I tried the fan, but that didn't do the trick.  Tomorrow I'll try a heater instead.  Hopefully that will dry it out.

Went to see my mom this morning and raided her garage of pictures and rugs.  The rugs are for the downstairs until I yank the old carpet out.  The pictures are for the butt ugly yellow walls in my bedroom.  One day I'll paint it. :)

Time for LDN and bed.  Got plenty of stuff to do tomorrow.

  1. okay - THAT just looks too delicious! i always improvise, too - but won't have to soon when we get that dang garden in - oh i can't wait! when i try your recipe, i am throwing in 40 handfulls of cilantro - i love cilantro with coconut milk!

    is it warm enough to open the window in your bedroom for the day to help dry out the carpet?

    glad you got some pictures and rugs to help you make the place a little more home-y!

  2. Kymber....LOL, it was delicious!! I wish I liked cilantro. It is sooo good for you.
    It's been very warm and very humid for the past week, which isn't helping any. It's starting to smell funky.
    Photos helped a lot, I put them all up today and cleaned one wall in the living room. I'll put up photos later. :)
    Hugs,

  3. cee-rap! so opening a window won't help dry it out at all....i have no idea what to recommend except to try the heater.

    looking forward to the pics of what you've been doing to the place!

    hugs back honey!

  4. Kymber...I left the windows open before I left for work this afternoon. Will stop somewhere to get some baking soda or something that I can sprinkle on top of the carpet. Hopefully it will be dry enough for me to use my vaccum.

I know it is only the ramblings and rants of one woman, but I would love to hear from you.
