Alright, I’ll be the first to admit that I haven’t been eating 100 per cent well lately. It is absolutely crazy at school right now (I feel like all the other university students out there can feel my pain) and I just haven’t had time to take care of myself at all. For example, this past Monday the only thing I ate was a bagel (sesame seed toasted with strawberry cream cheese, the only way to go), a piece of lemon poppy seed loaf from Starbucks, a Vitamin water and a piece of leftover brownie cake. I managed to get in all four food groups, right?
WELL, by the time Tuesday rolled around, I was craving actual food. I’m sorry that this is another post featuring squash as the main-ish ingredient but lets face it, I am one person, with one squash. No matter how many times I feed my roommates (Ariel has been benefitting quite greatly from my cooking lately), it still takes me three times as long to finish one thing. This being said, you can expect some sort of “stuffed squash” dish over the next few days, unless I follow Brittany’s suggestions and bake something.
Okay, so this Chicken Squash Curry was something I found when browsing the Canadian Living website the other day, in search of a way to use up my inhuman amount of squash. Since this recipe also allowed me to use the mild Indian curry sauce that has been sitting in our fridge for months, I decided to go for it. Mmmm, I forgot how good curry sauce smells when you cook it. I was happy to smell like a little Indian food restaurant for the rest of the day. To pay tribute to how crazy even this day was, my cooking was interrupted halfway through by a telephone interview I needed to perform for journalism. Luckily for me, onion and green peppers don’t mind sitting in a pan half cooked…
Anyways, before you motor on over to your kitchen to cook this, I must add that I used (a) green peppers instead of chili green peppers and (b) didn’t add in as much cilantro because I think it is kind of yucky. So be cautious. Also, leftover curry makes some delicious rice wraps (especially when mixed with leftover couscous from the roommates). Now that I have said that, go forth and eat.
