Tonight we’re eating a fusion lasagna: layers of wonton wrappers, thinly sliced zucchini and yellow squash seasoned with curry powder, and ground turkey browned and simmered with a mirapois in a thai panang curry sauce then tossed with fresh basil.
A: so this is actually what we ate last night…it got late and we unfortunately didn’t have time for the dialogue
T: nope. sometimes sleep calls and there is little that can be done.
A: if only we didn’t have to wake up in the morning! anyway, if this meal was tops perhaps we would have been more motivated to blog it (rather than watching american idol!)
T: haha, yeah. It was a good meal, just not quite orgasmic. my favorite part was the spicyness. it provided a nice tingling sensation.
A: yeah, it was so far removed from my original vision that i had when i was purchasing the ingredients while i was delirious from no real sleep in a 24+ hour period.
T: man that’s terrible how little sleep you get.
A: i know, but at least if i stay up i can accompish things… AND get to see you! (and blog!)
T: it’s a terrible, terrible schedule you have.
A: aw….:-$ it’ll get better, i swear! … so many things were not as they should have been with this meal. I didn’t get to make the panang sauce to serve with it… it was over cooked and the veggies were mushy… it was a touch on the salty side…
T: yeah, it seemed like you had lost your way along the way with this one. fortunately you have a good sense of direction. It was a hair on the salty side, though.
A: i have a problem working with curry paste some times… i forget how high the salt content is in those things, then i go and add silly things like fish sauce (really salty) and soy sauce… i didn’t find it to be overwhelmingly salty, but still, i aim for as close to perfection as possible… it was what it was, you know?
T: i didn’t think it was overwhelmingly salty either. yeah, hey, folks have done worse than this meal. no doubt.
A: thanks T! well i gave this meal a 3.7/5. I seemed to enjoy it whilst I was eating it, but it was certainly not impressive or worthy of a 4/5 in my book.
T: so any ideas about what we will eat this weekend on your birthday?
A: I dunno yet! that’s on my list of things to do tonight… figure out what new restaurant i want to visit. it will be nice, most likely.
T: that should be fun!
A: woo hoo!!! a b-day good time!
Kwaherini mabibi na mabwana!
