For those of you wondering why I haven't posted recently, it's because I just took a mini hiatus...in fucking paradise! A week ago I went to an all-inclusive resort in Mexico with my family and it was fabulous. Free drinks. All you can eat buffets. A gorgeous pool and an amazing view of the ocean. Be insanely jealous. Its ok.
One day I went snorkeling like ten feet from the shore and saw a sea turtle. It almost ran into me and I definitely screamed. The ocean kind of gives me the creeps, but when I heard that you could see sea turtles I knew I had to try. Worth it.
Most days I ate until I felt sick...ok, every day I ate until I felt sick. I ate even when I didn't feel like eating, simply because I could and the food was delicious. But don't even talk to me about cheese fries...*shudder* I'm not ready for that yet, and I fear that I may never be. My sister knows what I'm talking about.
I flew into Columbus and didn't get back to my sister's apartment until close to midnight last Saturday, and then had to drive back to Muncie to pack up my house Sunday morning. Then I drove back to Columbus Monday morning and moved into my apartment just in time for an early morning job interview on Tuesday.
It's been a busy week, but at least it hasn't been a dull week. (Not that I wouldn't trade it for a lifetime of all-inclusive resort living...)
KITCHENS OF INDIA LAMB CURRY: A REVIEW
1 packet of Lamb Curry Paste by Kitchens of India (like $2.00 at the store in the Asian foods isle)
Rack of lamb (about 8 ribs)
2 cups of water
Wild rice for serving
In a large skillet, add the curry paste and the two cups of water. Turn heat to medium to combine.
While that heats up, butcher the lamb into individual ribs.
Then add in the lamb, cover, and let simmer for 50-60 minutes.
I served mine with a wild rice blend and some lemon, though I wish I had some cilantro too.
This curry is ridiculously easy to make and the flavor is outstanding. I was honestly shocked by how much I liked it. It packs a little heat and all of the spices made it taste like I had slaved over it all day, instead of spending about $2.00 and less than an hour on it.
The only negative thing I have to say about this product is that it is VERY greasy. I wish I had skimmed the grease off of the top before serving it because it separated out and looked pretty unappealing after a few minutes.
