Curried chicken and toasted peanuts

I enjoy making too much rice. I really enjoy turning it into a Walnut-Cheddar loaf.

I don’t have anymore walnuts. It is proving more difficult to order than I think it should be. So, unsure of the peanut-lemon-onionnutritional yeastcheddar cheese combination – I brain stormed curry.

  • Heat pan.
  • Add a few tablespoons toasted sesame oil, heat oil.
  • Add 1/2 onion, chopped, and a few cloves of minced garlic.
  • When browned, add a tablespoon of a spicy curry powder.
  • After a minute or two, toss in 1/2 cup of unsalted peanuts, toast lightly.
  • Add (fresh or frozen) corn and peas (1/2 cup to 2 cups each).
  • Add 4 cups chopped (cooked) chicken (preferably from Taylor-Made Farms, previously roasted with lemon pepper and garlic).
  • Add leftover rice (minimum 2 cups).
  • Serve, and enjoy.

      One, I forgot that Jody dropped off my Bob’s – just in time because I ordered unsweetened shredded coconut, so that was added to the curry. YUM.

      Two, the first time I used a garbage disposal was 1998, 3rd year at MSU, living off campus in my first apartment. I thought, okay garbage disposal, let’s put down these potato skins. Another “never” put down the disposal lesson…

      And, of course, I am very sorry about your kitchen. It’s good it’s all getting fixed now, though, right?

Food fads, revisited

Food fads, revisited

Food fads are a thing. Every year, it seems, we learn about something else we should or shouldn’t do or eat for so-called optimal health. Milk is in until it isn’t. Alternate kinds of milk are in until they aren’t. We can eat based on our blood types. We can use ancient traditions. We can even get into gastro-molecular inventions (what!?).
