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!
