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.

    What an amazing take on the classic chicken salad! I need to mak this for lunch ASAP!

    I just bought your book off Amazon this week after stumbling upon your blog while researching Paleo stuff. Haven’t been able to use it yet, but am very excited about it (& btw, this recipe looks fab!). Also – I’m in Dallas! But I can’t come to the B&N signing bc I’ll be at work – at a gym! (You should probably workout before your signing, lol!) And I understand what it’s like being away from an amazing dog (& the amazing welcome home they give!!). Btw, “what I ate” & workout posts are great. Blessings!

      what gym do you work at?!

        The Tom Landry Fitness Center at Baylor downtown – 3 floors of awesomeness! (& I got my days mixed up, so I won’t be there, but you should still check us out!! =D ) http://www.baylortomlandryfitnesscenter.com

    I’ve gotten in the habit of making chicken salad several times a week. My Traeger makes it so easy to just toss a whole chicken on and shred it up after an hour.

    1. juli says:

      i’ll have to try that with my own Traeger!

  4. Robin says:

    Please, please post a curry recipe, I LOVE curry and I’m sure something you create will be amazing! Just read the post from the Strawberry Dressing blog (somehow I missed it first time around) and am dying laughing, you are the funniest!

  5. Jess says:

    There is an awesome Thai restaurant right next to the Half Price books in Austin. It’s called Titayas and it’s our go-to place. We prefer it more for take out, but either way the currys are delish

    Haha, all that driving is going to suuuuuuck.

    if you’re craving curry in dallas definitely go to Malai Kitchen for the green curry. It is to die for.

    For gluten free fare, you’ll want to go to Kozy Kitchen. You can get risotto dairy free and all dishes are gluten free. The sea bass is amazing for dinner but the off menu bowl of doom is most crossfitter’s post-workout go to.

    Best meal I’ve ever had in Dallas is the lamb neck at Boulevardier in Bishop Arts.


  8. Jen @ Chase the Red Grape says:

    I love curry and hope you post a recipe! When I think ‘curry’ I think Indian food but I think that’s just what curry mostly is in the UK!
    I have just moved to Australia and that was a 35 hour flight with a one hour stop over in Dubai… cabin fever is an understatement! haha!

  9. Angela says:

    Hi Juli! Just got your book and I love it! If you’ve already answered this question, I apologize, but do you always eat free-range, grass-fed meats? I’m switching to Paleo and needed some advice. Thank you!

    1. juli says:

      i do (except when i’m going out to eat) but i didn’t when i first started paleo, it took me a while until i was comfortable spending that much money on food

  10. Derek @ HealthierDay says:

    That sandwich looks so good. Especially the roll!

    It looks like it will also pass the kid test – “nothing spicy and no peppers” 🙂 We will definitely give this one a go, but may have to leave out the onions for the kids.
