So, about six hours of cooking so far today. Started off very early with a warm blueberry compote that I put on my power waffle straight outta my mini waffle maker.

You’d think that I would have rested after that but no. I marinated a mix of ground meats and water chestnuts in garlic, ginger, cilantro, jalapeno, oyster sauce, sriracha and sugar overnight. This morning I fried all that up, drained the grease, and stuffed a whole mess of wonton skins with the cooled mixture and fried them all up.

Oh yeah, and while I did all that I also cooked up a pot of chicken, potato, and onion massaman curry that I may slice up fresh avocado on top of later.

If anyone needs me, I’ll be on the couch!

How much of a PITA is your recipe? That sounds delicious…

Actually not too bad. Of all the curry paste flavors I prefer Penang and this one. Then just make a soup from the veggies so they’re soft. Fry the paste with a small bit of your favorite oil to loosen it up and then mix in precooked chicken and the veggies. One can of coconut milk with the cream later and mix in equal parts to taste but I like 3 tablespoons each of fish sauce, lime jiuce, and sugar and you’re done.

Great plate. Cannot get GF to eat red/tomato sauce.
Have a can of Alta Cucinas that I need to cook up. Want to try replicating sauce from last restaurant job. Great stuff no onions no sugar.

PHREDDY! It’s so nice to hear from you again. Glad to hear that things are going well as can be expected given a global pandemic. Hope to hear from you more often.
