I hate snow too that's reason #23 I moved to Houston. ;-)

Man I miss living in Houston. I'd kill for some Niko Niko's right now.



Right down the street I can walk there.

I'm jealous.

Re: I Tried Something New Today
I often shop at Asian markets.

For curry - look in the canned section for tiny cans. Sorry, I couldn't find my cans to give you a brand name. They are from Thailand. Different types - different color cans (green, yellow, red). (masaman, green, red)

You mix the contents with cans of coconut milk, meat and veggies. I often use leftover meats and veggies.


Excellent stuff. Seriously great stuff.

Are you on the westside, Nikki? Just a guess since most of the Asian stores are Beltway/Biss-Bellaire area now. I saw on Kevin's t-storm thread Christmas eve you live in H-town.


I live in the Montrose area.


I used to live in SW/Meyerland/Westbury area. Good fricking restaurants in Montrose!

I just want to say, hmmmm hmmmm good.

Indian Curry is my favorite. Haven't cooked that up in a long time.

The best beverage I found to go with curry is, believe it or not, a German wine. Liebfraumilch

But I wished I had the Curry sauce for the chicken.

I'm crappy with name too. Yes in the Montrose you can walk to great food from all over the world and the Grocery stores have a wide range of foreign foods. I'll stop in a Fiesta and see stuff in the produce dept that I have no idea what it is.

I'll keep an eye out for it. The thing I like about curry paste is I can keep it on the boat and spice up most any meal.

Fudge


3 cups white sugar
3/4 cup butter
sm. can evap.milk
12 oz bag semisweet cho.chips
7oz jar marshmallow cream
1tsp vanilla

1 cup chopped pecans if you like

Melt butter in microwave proof bowl(a large one) for 1 min. Stir in sugar and milk, microwave 3 min. stir,microwave2 min, stir,microwave 3 min,stir and finally microwave 2 1/2 min. Remove from microwave and stir in chips, marshmallow cream vanilla and nuts. pour in to pan quickly as it sets pretty fast. I sometimes poor in to paper cups cake cups and give as gifts, it looks really nice that way. This is very tasty for microwave fudge and is fool proof.
