Dinner

Dinner: Monday, January 7, 2019

Much to my surprise, the wife took a shot at making take out Chinese food for dinner tonight. Well, I said much to my surprise, but I’m not really surprised. She’s worked hard to expand her fantastic cooking chops into unfamiliar terrain, including not only Chinese but Thai and Mexican as well. But I digress. The wife’s offering tonight was Orange Chicken with steamed rice. It wasn’t perfect, but it was really good for a first attempt. The best part was the crispiness of the fried coating. It stood up nicely to the orange sauce and remained crispy. The sauce itself was good, but a bit on the tart side when compared to our usual take out haunts. I also thought the meal overall could have used a little more seasoning. If I did numeric scores, I’d give the wife a seven out of ten for her first foray into orange chicken. Looking forward for to her second attempt.


Lunch: Thursday, January 3, 2019

So, it is not unusual for my lovely wife to pack up leftovers, for my lunch at work, from dinner the night before, and when it is her potato and chicken yellow curry with jasmine rice, I don’t complain at all, as it is one of my favorite things to eat. Yes, it does start with a prepared yellow curry sauce, my current favorite, Mae Ploy Thai Yellow Curry Sauce, but she then spices it up with either Thai chili peppers, habaneros or one of the other varieties that we have begun growing at the house. I highly recommend this one if you don’t have time to make your own yellow curry sauce from scratch. It is also vegetarian before you add whatever ingredients you want, it is useful for vegetarian curries, which the wife often makes me when I am dieting. Either way the flavor is excellent and I look forward to this meal very much, for lunch or dinner. Even my youngest child loves this one.


Wednesday Dinner: June 27, 2018

Again, been on a hiatus from the diet for a bit, and thus been having more variety for dinner than usual. The wife surprised me tonight with her chicken and potato yellow curry with Jasmine rice for dinner. She knows it’s one of my favorites. I love the spice and the creamy texture that the coconut cream brings to it.

She also made up a cake for dessert as well. Not exactly sure what the name is, but it had pineapple, orange and whipped cream involved. Really enjoyed it. The wife does a great job, especially when she’s on summer vacation. Lol.
