- Sweets: (mouth full of food and about to inhale a second forkful) How many more bags of this recipe did you make?
- Me: Just this one.
- Sweets: Uh oh. Let's steal your sister's and mom's.
- Me: (immediately texting away to all who joined me for the freezer meal night) We ate the curried chicken tonight and it is awful. I feel so horrible for suggesting this meal. We're willing to sacrifice one of our lasagna dishes for your curried chicken. So sorry!
I promise it was funny when it happened. Reading it now, it just looks like a waste of your time. Sorry folks...

Peanut Curried Chicken
For the Freezer Meal Night, this recipe was multiplied by 4 and then divided up among 5 families. If you only intend to make this for your family, only do a quarter of each ingredient.

I have to end this post with the best quote I heard today from my friend Heidi, the Shoeologist:
"When God closes one door, he opens a box of girl scout cookies".
That He does, Heidi. I am incredibly sad to say however that I have yet to eat my first girl scout cookie of the season and typically by now I have inhaled at least 3 boxes. Am I on a diet, you ask? Watching my calories? Trying to eat healthier? Heavens no. I just never remembered to order them. I am dying! If anyone just so happens to drop some off at my house tomorrow morning for my breakfast, I promise I won't object. MMMkay, thanks.
