My friend, Judy, had sent me this recipe and I made it last night and it was delicious! I served it with coconut rice which involves opening one can of coconut milk, bringing it to a boil, adding 1 tsp. salt, 1 cup of rice; turning down the heat to simmer, adding a lid and cooking til done. Then I added about 1/4 c. chopped cilantro and about 2 T. chopped Thai basil. Yum. And, sorry . . I was trying to get everything done outside before the storms got here (they never arrived), and get dinner done and then I was trying to hurry and eat and get the kitchen cleaned and take my shower because if the electricity goes off, we have no water. Vince can fire up the generator but I doubt he would do that the minute the power goes off . . knowing Vince, he’d wait at least a week before using the generator.
But . . back to dinner. We were sitting there and I was trying to be a nice wife and carry on a caring conversation. We were talking about which dinner Vince liked best — the dinner I fixed last night or the enchiladas the night before. He said on a scale of 1 to 10, they both rated 11. No help there! Then we had this conversation:
Me: What concerns you the most these days?
Vince: What do you mean by “concerns”?
Me: You know . . what do you keep thinking about a lot?
Vince: I guess the thing I think about most is whether you’re going to make pizza this week? Tomorrow is Thursday and we haven’t had pizza this week!
That’s what concerns my husband . . that’s what keeps him awake at night . . wondering when we’re having pizza again. I guess on a scale of 1 to 10, my pizza might rate 12 with him!
You know what we’re having for dinner tonight, don’t you?
