Chef M3RLz: 09/11/12

My mom is bragging to her friends about my cooking again. That's the same person who is always reluctant to try my food. She loves to complain that her "blood pressure is too high" or her "sugar level is abnormal" and that since my food is too sweet, it would cause her levels to fluctuate. My American food that is, not the Italian dishes.  

Excuses, excuses. I think she's afraid that if she tries it, she'll actually like it! I know she would.

One of the people that she told was my uncle. He loves when my sister and I excel at different hobbies so he's always super supportive when we try something new. He's yet to try any of my food (see last post) but has decided to contribute a large bag of jumbo shrimp! Ka-ching! I love that man! :)

Keeping with my new schedule of cooking twice a week, I've managed to serve a few dishes recently. For the month of September, I've made cod fish, chicken, and shrimp and we're only 11 days in. I'm back with another chicken dish: my tweaked version of a Honey Baked Chicken recipe found online. Turned it into curried chicken instead since my food is always too sweet; notice I said "curried chicken" and not "curry chicken". Unfortunately, I did not follow the recipe. I never do; just use the same items but change the amounts and add other things. Here is the original recipe:
  • 3 pounds of Chicken drumsticks 
  • 1/4  cup of butter
  • 1/4  cup of honey
  • 1 tbsp of mustard
  • 1/2  tsp of salt
  • 1/2  tsp of black pepper
  • 1 tbsp of curry powder

Curried chicken, white rice, 
with string beans and carrots.

Okay, so that looks good but I prefer curry chicken vs curried chicken. Shout out to your uncle for the support & your mom for her "sugah" levels keeping her from eating your food.

I'm still waiting for my dinner plate to be sent to me though... what's up with it?
