Tonights kitchen disasters:-)

Tuesday, February 05, 2013

All's well in the end but I have to be honest about getting there! I made roasted corn chowder with chicken, ice tea, gluten free herb flat bread and grapes for dinner. The chowder has fresh corn,butternut squash,tomatoes with chili's,coconut milk,lime juice and a splash of agave nectar. Nothing spicy here, but it all started with cumin,curry and chili powder. When I sampled the chowder as it was cooking I was shocked how spicy it was. I was skimming the spices from the top of the chowder, I did this over and over. In the end a quart of broth and a cup more of coconut milk made it edible. It's really very good and I had made it before but must have really dialed down the spice that time! Good news is hubby really liked it and ate two bowls. My other problem was awful tea! I left the tea bags in too long, while I was trying to de spice the chowder! I'd already sweetened it so throwing it out wasn't happening! I just added twice the water and more stevia/sugar blend and it was just right! So even a pretty good cook has off days too! There are days this would have sent me reeling but today it didn't faze me!

    As much time as I spend in the kitchen, I know oopsies will happen! I also follow a cardinal rule by Gorden Ramsey! Constantly taste your dish as you are preparing it. I also know that a little goes a long way especially in the spices & herbs area. It's better to start with a pinch of something or a part of a pepper then add to taste! You'll be fine. And that dish looks tempting! Stay strong, focused, and all the best in your future healthy recipes!
