A Taste of Thai – Yellow Curry Rice

I’m not usually a big fan of “packaged” meals like rice and pasta, but this one is entirely different. There are a couple different “Taste of Thai” products such as coconut ginger rice and pad Thai, but this one is by far my favorite. It has just the right amount of spice/heat.

It tastes great as a dish alone. But I usually have a second fry pan going with things I like such as mushrooms, onions, “soy crumbles,” and chopped sweet peppers. Once the rice is cooked, I toss everything into one pan.

A box includes a packet of jasmine rice, a packet of powdery curry seasonings, and a clear packet of spicy paste. I used to divide the paste in half to knock the spicy level down a few notches. But I’ve built up my tolerance and now like it “full blast.” If you like spicy food, go for the full packet. A box costs about $4. Not cheap, but it’s so good I have it once a month or so.

I also keep a bottle of Bragg Liquid Aminos on my counter. This goes GREAT with many savory dishes like pasta, rice and potatoes. It’s basically the healthier version of soy sauce. You can find this at most grocery stores in the “natural” section, or at any health food store.

‘Twas the Night After Doomsday…

I discovered this cookie dough “ice cream” that’s dairy free. All of the flavor, half the guilt.

You’ll never look at coffee flavored jelly beans the same way again. I think that’s a sheep dispenser.

Sumatra Coffee

I was musing on Twitter that to me, all coffee tastes the same. It doesn’t matter if I get Folgers, decaffeinated, McDonald’s premium roast, Dunkin’ Donuts, grind my own beans, you name it, when it’s in my cup, it’s all the same.

Because of this, I usually grab the most economical (cheap) brand of coffee. I’m not a huge coffee fan. I mainly drink it during my work day when I’m desperate for a power nap but the show must go on. I often dump scalding hot coffee into a glass full of ice, then add an inch or two of coconut milk to the glass. I’m not a big fan of straight coffee.

After I mentioned this on Twitter, someone recommended Sumatra coffee. I made a mental note. After checking out a few grocery store coffee sections, I found something that said SUMATRA on the package, and it happened to be Starbucks. I think it was around $10.

One thing I really love about coffee is the aroma. I would say I love the aroma of coffee, but tolerate the flavor. When I opened the bag, I would describe the smell as coffee mixed with some tea. I would call it a weaker than usual aroma. Sometimes the smell of coffee just smacks you in the face, and I like it. I was kind of put off by the mildness of the aroma at first and thought, this is a bad sign.

I whipped up my usual coffee concoction and took a swig. Something different was happening. The coffee flavor, for a lack of a better description, attaches to your taste buds and holds on for dear life. So rather than tasting coffee for a second or so, the flavor holds. There is less of a burnt bitterness, which reveals a better flavor. A flavor that sticks itself to your taste buds for about 4 times as long as regular coffee.

This means you have an overall more flavorful experience. I started reading through reviews of this coffee online and a lot of people love it. If you like a bold, flavorful coffee, this is one I recommend grabbing for a taste at your local coffee shop for sure. And I think I may have found a coffee I actually like. More research will be necessary to confirm.

Chicken McNuggets and Onion Rings (Sort Of)

dIMG_1781

dIMG_1777

I hadn’t had McDonald’s Chicken McNuggets since probably the 1990s. I knew there are “meat free” versions of these types of nuggets at local grocers, so I tried them. These are baked in the oven, so they aren’t fried. They actually are a pretty tasty snack. They aren’t greasy, have a nice crunch and go great with dipping sauces. I threw in a few rings so I could make my own “sampler platter.”

I keep telling people, there are substitutes for practically everything that’s bad for you. And many of these actually taste as good as the bad versions! These could totally fool anyone into believing they’re the real deal.

A Little Bit of This, A Little Bit of That

Why did it take this long for someone to make an ice cream cupcake? Available in the freezer section, obviously.

dIMG_1721

Saw these interesting cupcake kits. I may actually make these so I can see what they look like in person. The vintage feel and the fact it comes with the mix, icing and unique candy cane sprinkles makes me want this for reasons.

This Haagen-Dazs photo is an optical illusion. These are two half gallon tankers of ice cream. So if you don’t mind spending $12, one of these could fill some deep emotional voids.

Peach Pie

I hadn’t had pie in awhile, so I decided to change that. Apple pie sounded good, but peach pie sounded even better.
