When the middle of the work week rolls in, it brings somewhat of a relief within. Yes, I know others consider it to be an obstacle or maybe, the toughest day of the week.  For me, It’s like a tinge of liberation so to speak. Half of the ‘battle’ has been won. So, I go with the flow. And that’s what I did this afternoon.

I hopped in my kitchen and did some wild chops to my drumsticks and thighs while I sipped on a little left-over Merlot chilling in the fridge. Placed the red brew in the ice-box to garner a little more shelf-life. And boy, I was ‘over the moon’.

But anyway, I was in for a bold and delicious taste. Decided to make a curry stew from my dark meats. It didn’t take me long to season with my familiar spices of curry powder, cumin, all spices (pimento), onions, scotch bonnet pepper, ginger, garlic and of course, salt and pepper to taste.

With a little coconut oil in a sturdy skillet, I allowed my feathery pieces to simmer to a mouth-watering consistency. It was a fall from the bone type of ‘deal’. Served up my curried chicken (bone-in) with a fluffy Jasmine rice, garlic and lemon flavored asparagus and broccoli, a sweet serving of fried plantain and of course nature’s butter (avocado).

All ingredients married quite well. It was a spicy, a hint of sweet, bold and delectable affair. Oh, I love Hump days! Happy Hump day everyone!

I'm originally from the beautiful island of Jamaica. In Jamaica, we always find a reason to celebrate. And, when there's a celebration, there is music, fun and of course, food, great food. Presently, I reside in So. Florida.Living here in Florida offers varied cultures, people of different ethnic backgrounds. I've a great passion for the culinary side of life. Therefore, being in So. Fl., provides me the great accessibility of fresh seafood, fruits and vegetables. Moreover, I've the choice to indulge in a amazing foods from different cuisines.This ability provides great inspiration for me to retreat to my humble kitchenette and replicate these dishes.It warms my heart to be able to break bread with loved ones. I'm an avid reader and love to get lost between these beautiful words. I find reading to be a social activity because it allows me a peek inside other people's minds which in turn makes me more empathetic towards others. One day in the near future, I hope to publish my very own words in the area of poetry as well as my other love, food. Yoga and speed walking are just a few of the things that keep me balanced and centered. I love family and friends; and, of course, wholesome foods with a glass of cocktail. Life is what you make of it. And, I try to savor and enjoy the simple and precious moments.
