Experiment with Squash


Tonight for dinner: a curry-spiced dish of rice pilaf. I browned the rice in the pan with onion and garlic, with later additions of acorn squash, raisins, and dried apricots. No recipe. Just using what was here.


On my plate, the rice pilaf with apple slices, two types of chutney, and a roll with butter. The spices blended nicely into the dish: cardamom, saffron, and curry powder. The red chutney is home-made plum chutney, and the yellow chutney is Trader Joe's mango chutney. Some of the spices, the rolls, and the dried apricots were also from TJ.

It looks tasty- I refer to these nights now as an Invention Challenge like on Master Chef. They're usually a bit fun and it's good to use up what you have- and you never quite know where it will take you either... I'm impressed that you have home made chutney! Well done.

We are still learning about curry and so far have enjoyed each recipe that we have tried. I think I still have a lot to learn though...
