Don’t be frightened by this picture. I swear it actually tastes better than it looks. But I had to take this picture at 5am (you know the lighting is fabulous at that time) before I left for work, while I was packing it away in my cute little Tupperware. Remember how important cute Tupperware is?? Based on the picture, I guess I also have giant hands. Cute, real cute. I’ll think of it as a positive trait though, it’s just a bigger surface area for me to grab snacks with. Ok, I’m done freaking out about my man hands.
Anywho. I found this recipe idea in a CookingLight magazine. Jesus, I love that magazine. Trashy celebrity magazines come a close second, but CookingLight really gets me going. The pictures make food seem so much more exciting than it actually is sometimes. So I decided to recreate this little masterpiece and it was DELICIOUS. And if you don’t like curry, I DON’T LIKE YOU!! Ok, that was a bit over the top. But seriously, get your head on straight. Curry ranks up there along chocolate and nut butters…aka, high!
