What defeat am I talking about?
I fixed a curry tonight with chicken, celery, carrot, mushrooms, garlic, leeks, and fresh pineapple. I used a tikka masala powder, along with some cardamom, fennel seed and turmeric. I cooked it on the stove top then garnished with raisins, hearts of palm, cocoanut, and pine nuts. I served over rice.
Well I guess it was a little too spicy and J was not that happy with it. I liked the basic idea behind the curry, but the spicing was too hot for J’s palette. I am crushed. I know it’s just one meal. Still cooking is one of the ways I feel validated by J as a human being and a husband.
I knew I was taking a risk with the tikka masala. Still I wanted her to sing my praises to the Highest Heaven.
There will be a next time. Pity Party over.
