I know I said that I was going to post pictures of my Coconut Curry about a week ago...but I forgot or got distracted or something. But here it is now!

This wasn't my favorite curry that I've made - admittedly, it's only the third - but it was still tasty. I could have gone with more heat, more coconut and less cinnamon, but I'll know for next time.

This morning I made Cheddar-JalapeƱo scones, which were honestly a bit of a disappointment. They were tasty enough, but they needed more salt and more heat to be really good.

Barbaric Impulses

This evening I punched a can of coconut milk - resulting in me gouging two of my fingers and bleeding all over the counter - and then ripped a chicken in two with my bare hands. All in all, a good evening.

Pictures of the coconut chicken curry tomorrow...

The Great Gnocchi Experiment Pt II

Well. The gnocchi was both good and bad. I absolutely loved the gnocchi by itself - it was super easy to make, had a great texture and was just barely sweet. Butternut squash is officially my new favorite vegetable. Unfortunately, a couple of the recipes I was looking at suggested that I toss the gnocchi in a brown butter and sage sauce, which at the time sounded wonderful. After making the brown butter sage sauce and tossing all of my beautiful orange gnocchi in it, I realized that I really do not like sage. Sadness!

Eddy loved it though, so I'll say that it was a success.

The Great Gnocchi Experiment

Originally Eddy and I (along with half of the SU physics department...which amounts to something like 5 people) were going to have dinner with one of our friends who has recently graduated. Sadly, Eddy has informed that she is sick and the dinner will have to be postponed. So, of course I decide that tonight should be a night to make something crazy for dinner, and I've spent the last 20 minutes googling for Butternut Squash Gnocchi recipes. This may turn out to be a disaster, but stay tuned!
