Just because I’m The Dessert Diva does NOT mean that I can’t or don’t cook; I do have three men to feed after all. Besides, I’m a country girl and good food is my kryptonite… especially at some odd hour of the night after I’ve already decided that I’m going to cook something that my taste buds have determined they no longer want. Sadly, this happens often. Fortunately, I usually come out with some pretty delectable dishes, and this time was no different.
Ten o’clock last Saturday night after having a craving for curry goat about an hour after the butcher shop I needed was already closed, but I couldn’t get the taste for curry out of my mouth. I opted to pack the boys up and head to the store and see what I could come up with. Unfortunately, I have yet to find a recipe for peas and rice that gives me exactly what I want in that at-home Caribbean dish that I’m searching for, but some fried chicken wings with curried cabbage on the side did the trick!
The Husband was at work and I was texting him about my creation and he requested that I have a lot of sauce “just like the Haitians.”
I’m not Haitian. He’s not Haitian, but he went to school in Florida and apparently got spoiled, and since I went on this curry quest of sorts I now had to try and make it into something he remembered that I knew nothing about. I don’t know how close I managed to get, but there wasn’t a drop left on his plate, so I did something right!
Be sure to let me know how yours turned out!
