Out of practice.

I've noticed that my usual brilliant writing has taken a shit in the last year. I completely own this one. I'm lazy, I have a shitty work schedule, and coming home and throwing some noodles in a bowl with frozen veggies and peanut sauce is hardly blogworthy. I also think I may have sacrificed some precious brain cells. So please, bear with me as I grow back my writing (and creative cooking) legs.

Here's what I'm working with tonight:

Brown basmati rice, some tofu, leftover diced tomatoes, red curry paste, coconut milk, and an onion. I knew it would be a curry of some kind, but I had to get the rice going really fast because it was already 11:00pm, and I have set standards for myself with MoFo. By midnight, or I am a disgrace.

I ended up skipping the tomatoes, and making a red coconut curry tofu with peas. Ah, peas. I just knew I had to have a bag in the freezer. I love them so much. I'll hang on to the tomatoes for something else. Does anyone have some extra creative juices they'd like to give me?

That looks and sounds amazing. I love peas sooooooo much.

I'm depending on MoFo to get my creative cooking juices flowing again, too. I took a long break and I seem to have forgotten how to cook. I guess like anything, practice makes perfect. You did a great job with the curry and I'm impressed that you came up with that at 11PM! I could barely manage to pour a bowl of cereal at that late hour.
