DomesticatingWritten by hootenannie on March 1st, 2010
Yesterday, I had a hankering for something that, to my knowledge, did not exist. So I took matters into my own hands and invented it.
The result is probably worthy of a Nobel Prize – that is, if there were a Nobel Prize for HOLLA.
See, if there are two things that I love in this world, they are coconut curry soup, and oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. Why not combine them, and create the most delicious thing imaginable:
Coconut Curry Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies.
As my former roommates Julie and Mel can attest to, I do not use recipes when baking cookies. I just throw a dash of this, a scoop of that, a dollop of thus-and-such into a bowl, mix it up, say a prayer, and bake at 375 for 8 minutes. So that’s what I did – but this time, I incorporated about a cup of coconut flakes and two tablespoons of curry powder – and some glugs of half-and-half, for good measure, and for posterity’s sake.
(I just really wanted to say “for posterity’s sake.”)
Not to hail my own self or anything, but… okay, fine. The outcome was nothing short of genius. I’m only worried that I will never be able to recreate it, what with my lack-of-recipe and all.
On the heels of a Saturday night achievement of Balsamic-Glazed Chicken with Sun-Dried Tomato Rice and Steamed Broccoli (all perfectly timed, I might add, and served to my parents and sister on beautiful dishes in my very cute apartment – video tour to come), I am starting to think that Domestic Goddess is a title I am straight up owning.
Next up: the sewing of my own throw pillows – piping and all. Stay tuned!
