I am blown away by your enthusiasm over the Raw Wednesday Challenge….I’m already planning Wednesday’s meal—what about you?!
Today seemed like my first “normal” day since the accident. Ryan and I played house and picked out our new oven and microwave; we are going to buy it hopefully tomorrow and I can get back to cooking next week! We also went to Target and spent a ridiculous amount of money on stupid stuff like cleaning supplies and cat food.
I drank a coconut water while running errands and then snacked on a banana with raw almond butter when we got home—
Around 4:00, I headed over to Margaret’s house to have a glass of white wine and help her make dinner for my parents. I sipped on chardonnay while she created a Thai culinary masterpiece. Everything centered on this GORGEOUS bok choy she found at Fresh Market a few days ago—
I cooked the bok choy and rice noodles as she quickly went about making a spicy coconut curry with chicken. Oh goodness, was it ever amazing!!!
The sauce was spur of the moment and fabulous….a mixture of thai red curry paste, 1 can coconut milk, hoisin sauce, 1 glob peanut butter, soy sauce and rice wine vinegar. The chicken was sauteed in olive oil, garlic and sea salt and then we just combined the chicken with the sauce, some minced garlic and ginger, a dried hot pepper and 1 chopped red pepper. I threw in the bok choy and cooked rice noodles at the end and it was fabulous.
My parents loved it too, of course! I don’t know if my mom will (or will have to!) ever cook again. The community outreach to my family at this time has been nothing short of mind-blowing.
Ryan and I are about to watch the movie Fireproof together and I had two of these puppies for dessert:
Gah! Obsession alert!! These raw chocolate chip cookies are from One Lucky Duck in the New York City and I can’t get enough. I can’t decide if I like these or the macaroons more….both are so amazing! These raw cookies are incredibly chewy are tasty. I actually had one after lunch today but it missed the camera’s eye….I love ’em!
Ryan is signaling to me that its movie time so I have to jet. See you all in the morning….goodnight, friends.
