June 3 - On my table

A most delicious (and very easy) curry.
1 Tbsp. bacon grease or coconut oil
6 boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut into bite-sized pieces
2 to 4 Tbsp. curry powder (I mix sweet and hot and use 4 Tbsp.)
1 large onion, cut in large chunks
4 carrots, peeled and sliced
1 head cauliflower, broken into florets
6 small or 1 large sweet pepper
1 can mushroom stems and pieces
1 can lite coconut milk

Melt the bacon grease or coconut oil in a Dutch oven. Brown chicken thigh pieces over medium-high heat in fat until no longer pink. Add the curry powder and let cook until fragrant, a minute or two. Add the vegetables, allowing each to cook for a minute or two before adding the next one. Dump a can of coconut milk over the mixture and stir well to combine ingredients.

Reduce heat to low, cover the pan and allow the mixture to simmer for an hour. Remove the lid, increase the heat to medium and cook so the juices thicken and reduce slightly.

Serves 4. Or two, generously.

Yum. Tastes just as good with pork instead of chicken and sweet potatoes instead of carrots.

That sounds delicious! I'm interested in how many servings it makes. In our house that would be gone in one meal :-)

Coconut oil is THE BOMB. I recommend it to anyone, paleo or not. It smells delicious, and imparts only a very, very light coconut flavor, it's not overwhelming at all. Somewhere between sweet and savory.

Around here, this serves 4. Which means I get a serving and a half and my husband gets two and a half. So, yeah, one meal and it's gone!

Update on the water: the circuit breaker tripped, either due to a power surge when the electricity came back on last night OR when lightning struck in the area. My neighbor's electric fence control box got hit in the same area. He was able to reset the circuit breaker for us and we have WATER! I think I'll go do a load of laundry. Heh.


Well. Well, well, well. Should this morning's scale number be divided between two weeks, or did all of it happen this past week? It's an easy number to divide, and I've been consistent for two weeks, so it should probably be split, doncha think?

That means I lost three pounds for each of the last two weeks. SIX pounds total. Excuse me, I mean
SIX!!!!!! I'm going to do everything I can to stay on track while I'm gone this week. There's little more I can promise. I'm really motivated to keep it up. The dumbbells are packed (and my luggage weighs a ton!), I'm taking a thermos of water in the car and I know where are the rest stops are between here and Nashville. I think I'll walk a bit at each of them, then walk again when I arrive at my destination. Hope to get a total of 80 minutes done by the end of the day. SIX!!!!!!

And the winner is …

Kitten with a Whiplash, who left two comments and it was the second (which had nothing to do with the contest) which won the prize. Congratulations, and since the Kitten was the only commenter who expressed any interest in actually winning it, I'm so glad the Universe took care of it. Heh.

What a weekend! But first, how was yours? I hope you did some fun stuff and got some necessary stuff done, as well. It's all about balance.

Saturday was our fun day (but we had to drive, drive, drive to get there and then drive, drive, drive home again, all in one day, boy was I tired). We went to my husband's granddaughter's first birthday party. In addition to a sweet little doll, suitable for ages 0+ (meaning it has no parts that will come loose, and do you know how difficult it is to find dolls for babies when you live in the Middle of Nowhere?), I made her this:

I haven't sewn anything in a month of Sundays, so was a little apprehensive about finishing it on time, but this p…
