It's not been a great cooking weekend for me thus far. That's okay, because other good news has far outweighed a few odd meals.
Here are my not-so-gorgeous biscuits, obviously I'm not a true southerner.
And I had leftover red wine, so I ended up making a rich, mushroomy, dark completely inappropriate gravy. It was such a meaty, night time gravy.
We each munched a polite bite, set the rest aside for dinner and went for a more appropriate, TavoLini-esque sunday breakfast:
While doing up lunches for the week to come, we decided on Coconut Shrimp Curry soup. Got the mushrooms and curry and grated ginger going...
Tavo wasn't a fan of the fish sauce smell--actually I'm not a fan either! Our house reeks of it.
Added the coconut milk
raw peeled shrimp (I swear, this $4 for a lb of shrimp sale should NEVER end...)
squeezed the lime juice..
And the soup--the coconut milk stayed kind of separated throughout the cooking. Don't know why exactly. But it tasted fine, regardless. Packed up for lunches.
(whoa! see that ring finger squeezing the lime? It's true--Tavo proposed over the weekend :) Yeah!!! That's the big news) I love you babe!
