Hart to Heart Guest Post

It's a lovely Monday morning, and I have lots to share with you in the coming weeks: my new quest to organize, lots of great recipes, and more! In the meantime, head on over to my friend Leigh Anne's blog - Hart to Heart, to see the guest post she was so kind to ask me to pull together for her.


Friday Potluck & Adobo Lime Tacos

There are some benefits to just having me and the fur babies in the house. If it's a mess, it's our mess. The grocery bill is MUCH lower than when K is home.

The bad things are that I have to shovel, keep his truck running (more of a challenge mentally and literally when it's 20 below than you might think), and WORST OF ALL, I am responsible for consuming ALL leftovers. I'm good at eating the same thing two nights in a row, and maybe a lunch. Beyond that, I can't do it... but I always seem to convince myself that it's doable and by the time I realize it isn't, I have a collection of science experiments (and really cool colors) in tupperware in my fridge.

Whoops.

That's my attempt at saying I'm not really bringing much to Friday Potluck. I made adobo lime chicken tacos this week, and just finished night #3 of them. They were amazing all three nights, especially since they are SO easy. With my pumped up work out schedule, I find that I want to go to bed much earlier, but still need to make sure I get enough protein ... and calories in general.


Adobo Lime Chicken Tacos

1 lb chicken, cubed into small 1/2" pieces
1 tbsp adobo lime rub
tortillas (I use the cook-your-own variety from Costco)
tomatoes, diced
cheddar cheese, shredded
lettuce, shredded
taco sauce to taste.

Heat a pan and toss the chicken in, sprinkling liberally with the rub. Cook until done, in the meantime prepping the other ingredients. Assemble tacos. Eat!

Store the ingredients in small bowls so that you can easily repeat. I don't have pictures, but I can tell you they are delicious!

Thai Yellow Curry & Friday Potluck

Happy Friday!

I was so relaxed that I forgot it was Thursday! How does that even happen?? I had every intent of posting last night after I made this delicious yellow curry. Guess I was too relaxed from my fabulous massage yesterday. These things happen.

Guess what! I didn't post until This Very Minute.

So today, a little late, I bring you Thai Yellow Curry & Friday Potluck.
You may or may not know that I have a love affair with Thai food. Particularly green curry. I've never had much success though with replicating the dishes. I wish I could tell you where I picked up a delightful little can of yellow curry paste. It's a mystery to me, and I plan to take photographic evidence with me to our specialty grocery store in the hopes that I bought it there rather than at Whole Foods when we lived in the Lower 48.

As I work on eating clean, Thai food is particularly wonderful to me -- no dairy, no processed foods (except for the curry paste if you buy it and don't make your own), and lots of whole real food ingredients. Ever since last fall when Full Circle Farms gave me several weeks of their produce boxes to try, I've been hooked on their small Seed size box, and look forward to it's delivery to my door step every Wednesday evening. Whole real foods that are organic and GMO-free have become increasingly important to me. Full Circle has brought me a plethora of potatoes. (I plan to make a spinach frittata with them tomorrow). With potato supplies burgeoning out of my pantry, it was time to make a curry that made use of some of them, and I just happened to find this yellow curry in my cupboard as well. A match made in heaven... after scouring the internet for some fabulous ideas. In the end, my yellow curry was a roaring success!



Thai Yellow Curry

1 small can (3 tbsp) yellow curry paste (I have no idea how to make)
1 tbsp peanut oil
1 can coconut cream
1 lb of chicken breast, cut into bite sized pieces
2 cups coconut milk (I used Silk brand)
2 potatoes, peeled and cut into bite sized pieces
1 large onion, halved and quartered

Heat peanut oil in a large pan and add curry paste to it. Cook until the paste starts to toast and smell delightful. Add in the coconut cream and cook for a few minutes, until the colors start to separate. Then toss in the chicken and the coconut milk... and simmer for about 15 minutes before adding the potatoes and simmering for another 15 minutes or until soft. Finally add in the onion and cook until softened.

Serve over brown rice.

Enjoy!! With that, I bring you Friday Potluck!
