The Husband comes from a condiment-loving family. His motherâ€™s fridge is packed so tightly with jars of sauce, jams, and dips that you can barely fit a carton of eggs in. Every time we go to the store together, he gravitates to the sauce aisle and says, â€œThink we need some sauces?â€
On the other hand, I am not a huge fan of condiments and specialty sauces because they are expensive (and maybe my taste buds are just satisfied by less). However, I love-love-LOVE this Korma simmer sauce.
Vegetable Korma is my favorite thing to order at Indian restaurants, and while this sauce doesnâ€™t exactly recreate the flavors of an authentic Indian dinner out (its very mild), I love the instant oomph it gives to a dish.
To make this very easy Vegetable Korma, I boiled chunks of yellow potatoes, celery, and carrots until tender, drained the veggies, and mixed in drained white kidney beans and Korma sauce. I let everything simmer for another 10 minutes. And tada! A very tasty lunch.
Sauces arenâ€™t so bad, after all.
Side note: We watched a REALLY great movie last night.
We select movies based purely on Rotten Tomato reviews. Unless itâ€™s a raunchy comedy (which hardly never get favorable ratings anyway), we refuse to watch anything rated less than 70% fresh. When we noticed that Midnight in Paris got a 93%, we HAD to rent it. And it was great and very, very creative. Itâ€™s about the nostalgia we have for the past and the concept that the â€˜grass is always greener.â€™
Goals: Finish up work, locate the cleaning fairies (they have been hiding from their dust bunny duties), and get some exercise on.
