I get giddy thinking about my garden. GIDDY. I love it. I obsess over it. Every morning I peek out the window hoping to see a flash of any red which would tell me a tomato is ripe and ready. My tomato plants are so tall and big and huge that I have to tie it up to itself and the tomato cage just to keep it contained. I pick every dead leaf off. I get oddly angry when I see a bug on a leaf trying to get all up in my garden shit. I'm like "No you di-ent" And it's like "Oh yes I did!" And then Gwen Stefani's Halloback Girl starts playing out of nowhere.
Here's my broccoli and cucumber. If I can keep Ameila from eating every single cucumber off the vine this year, I'll be happy. She loves "pickles."
Red bell pepper. Obviously not ready yet, but can't wait!
And I got all domestic and stuff this week and decided to branch out from my standard italian chicken/sweet potato/green veggie staple meal. I have a major crush on my crock pot. It just makes my chicken tender. I was going to say "That's what she said," but it didn't make sense. Anyway, I made some coconut curry chicken. And it actually worked! I suck at chicken. The only way it ever turns out tender and juicy for me is with the crockpot. So I had the the ingredients and threw it in for about 3.5 hrs on high. Despite looking like a sludgy, white mess at first, it came out great!
Coconut Curry Chicken
6 chicken breasts
2 -6z cans coconut milk
2 tbsp of red curry past
A lil tumeric
A lil garam masala
A lil cumin
It came out so great that I forgot to take a picture of it. Oops! I served it with brown rice and cilantro and lemon. Y to the UM.
And then there's this:
