What I'm Eating

Now that I made a Buffy post, I can get back to the usual topic of this eljay.

I made a nice squash curry. I boiled and smashed a small butternut squash (remove seeds and skin) with a bit of coconut milk and added stir fried broccoli, onions, potatoes, and red peppers with a just a little chicken to keep it meaty. Then I cooked it all together for a few minutes, turned down the heat and added fresh garden basil (yes, it's December! A friend has a greenhouse.), roasted garlic, salt, garam masala, chili powder, cumin, and fresh ginger.

Did a last bit of heating over low to mix the spices and I served it over brown rice.

Oh, it probably needs something a little sweet, too. I threw in some frozen peas this time after trying apples last time. Maybe I'll try raisins next time. Apples and peas are interesting, but I feel like I haven't found the perfect thing yet. I'm not going with high-fructose corn syrup, though your local curry spot probably does.

Note: Food, Inc. is a fine movie, but not to be watched over dinner. See if Hulu has the latest Castle instead. I looked up the total number of murders in the Southern District of Manhattan last year and I think it was less than the number solved by Castle and Beckett. Very impressive.
