Have you ever thought about what you would want your last meal to be? I think about it once a week. And that idea of what last crumb of food I would want to enter into my mouth before I die changes all the time. You wanna know what it is right now? Curry. I want curry all.the.time. Like, so much. I dream about it. I look up every Thai place in every town I’m in, and I want to eat it for every meal. Just the other day, I had it for breakfast. I’m seriously longing to get home JUST so I can make a curry dish for the blog. What’s going on with me? After having a life changing curry meal at my hotel in Mexico, curry has become my soul mate. I love you, Curry, my sweet sweet fat-loaded dish.
I know every day on the blog for the past 2 weeks I’ve been saying how long I’ve been traveling for, but seriously, I feel like I’ve been traveling for so long. I don’t know how people take flights to Europe. Hells to the nah. Sitting trapped in a plane for 4 hours is bad enough, but doing it for whatever it is, like 17 hours, would be my living nightmare. I would be the girl that would have a panic attack and the other passengers around me would throw me to the ground and hog tie me while the air marshal has to show his true identity and take me into custody, then I would become a news highlight because of all the brave men and women who took me down. That’s what it would be like. Because flying is terrible and sharing air with 150 other weirdos for multiple hours would cause anyone to go into a fit of psychosis.
Can you tell that I’m on an airplane as I’m typing this?
But it’s almost over. Only one more plane ride to go and that flight goes to home to my doggy. Tonight we are signing books in Austin at Half Price Books at the North Lamar at 7 pm, then we drive to Dallas tomorrow for a signing at B&N store #2884 Dallas/Lincoln Park at 7pm, then we finish our trip out driving to Houston to sign books on Sunday at Brazos at 5pm. Are you coming to any of our signings? Wanna hang out? Do stuff? Talk about food. Or my dog. I’ll talk about him as much as you would like.
Oh, before I let you go, I want to tell you where this recipe was inspired from since I know you’re just DYING to know. Dying. Sooooo did you see my Crispy Chicken Salad with Strawberry Poppyseed Dressing? Well, I had leftover dressing after making that. That’s where it’s inspired from. That was boring, wasn’t it? Sorrykbye.
