Curry Chicken and Coconut Rice

Yum! It's been awhile since I cooked something during a week night, but this one made this list. I used Shutterbean's recipe and its awesome.

Rosie came over for our monthly dinner/catch up night. She brought all the ingredients, she watches me cook dinner, and washes dishes. Then we eat and she gets to keep the leftovers for the week. That's our deal and I love it. I get to try out new recipes and I don't have to eat it all week! If you need me to do this, I am willing haha!


I didn't get a lot of pictures of the process because I made a video from it, but it smells great. The only thing I would change is use chicken stock instead of water for more flavor. No one else thought it was bland though, just me. Maybe because I was getting a cold when I made this.


Definitely will make this again!

Summer is great. It has lots of fun fruits, warm weather, and lots of things to do outside. Nobody REALLY wants to be inside baking right? Right. Well I baked something. My older brother “supposedly” loves coconut (according to his wife). And since he was staying with me for awhile, I decided I wanted to make him a coconut cake. It was going to be cool, creamy and topped with delicious fresh fruit.

Guess what, he doesn’t really like coconut THAT much. He only liked the coconut vietnamese dessert that I made a little while back. Oops. But he still had some. I thought it was delicious! But I definitely made too much. I guess coconut is an acquired taste. Maybe next time I will make a smaller batch!
