Good recipes to share with friends.
This delicious nut mix was part of a green bean recipe in the Skoki Lodge Cookbook. After enjoying this mix immensely a few months ago with the green beans, I decided to make the nut mix solo for a potluck and it was a huge hit.
For years I have wanted to find a good nut mix to send to my family as holiday treats. Well, it looks like the search has ended! I think I’m posting this early enough in the year so that if anyone in my family is reading this, they’ll have forgotten by the time Christmas rolls around.
In fact, we have three more seasons to get through, and speaking of seasons, here’s a beautiful song that talks about the changing of leaves and seems to stir up the chill of autumn and early winter. It’s by a Boston based artist named Marissa Nadler. Her style on her newest album, July, is just gorgeous. It walks a line between folk and dreamy pop. I find it amazing that she’s also contributed vocals to a black metal album called Portal of Sorrow by the band Xasthur.
I love versatility. I’ve talked lots about my love of potatoes because of the many ways you can prepare them. Curry is like that. Curry’s versatile flavour can be used in many ways also. I’ve seen it in numerous salad, some casseroles, even with pickles, not to mention just straight curries. It’s probably due to the various balances of spices that can be put into the curry so it’s built to work with many things.
What food do you find really versatile and can turn into dozens of different dishes? I’d love to know, leave a comment.
You’re Driving Me Curry Nuts!
Good for about a dozen people
