Golden Curry

I am new to the whole Asian foods thing. Gretchen and Ralphie were going on and on about this box (okay maybe not on and on, but they mentioned it). This package can be found in the Asian section of the grocery store and is like two or three dollars.

I followed the recipe on the back of the box. Which was like some oil, some meat (I used chicken), carrots, bell pepper, cut up potatoes and some water (box says about two cups, Ralph said about five cups so I compromised and used four cups).

It was a fast meal and it grew on me as I was eating it. I didn't know what to expect because I had never had curry. I didn't really like it at first, but by the end I got up and got seconds, which I don't normally do. I also maybe would have liked it more on a cold winter night instead of on a hot Texas day where it was over a hundred degrees out.

So, it's worth getting the box and trying it out, especially if you like curry.

Aaron loves that stuff..we eat it all the time. We usually make it with chunks of beef and potatoes. And then we serve it over rice, because clearly nothing in our home can be eaten without rice. Even potatoes.

This IS very yummy. I had a roommate from Japan one year in college and she used that very box all the time to make her curry, so I figure it's got to be pretty authentic, right? But I haven't had it in way too long on a count of my crazy husband is allergic to POTATOES. I think I'll maybe try it with sweet potatoes instead, because he can actually eat those. I know, it's not really the same, but we do what we have to sometimes, right?
