Sometimes, I get a great idea of what to make for Dinner but the execution ends up being off for some reason or another. Last night, I made a Coconut chicken curry soup. I thought no it could have been good, but I used cream of coconut instead of coconut milk. The cream of coconut, apparently, is really sweet. Like, coconut flavored syrup sweet. I didn’t realize this until after I put the whole can in. Had I not done that, I could have just made a chicken soup.
At least there is Bread and butter. Woodman’s carries a brand of take and bake loaves of bread. We try to have a few on hand at all times. They’re a good side with a lot of things. We get a French baguette which is a couple feet long. I usually end up eating the whole thing, minus slices Ellie eats. Bread and butter could keep me going.
So while I did have bread, I still wanted to try to salvage the soup. I tried adding citrus and it didn’t cut the sweetness enough and too much citrus just made it unpleasant to eat. I tried adding leftover rice, and it helped a bit but there was still too much of the sweet broth. I ended up draining most of the broth and eating the chicken and veggies with rice.
Tonight will be better, tonight we are going out for a friend’s birthday. If the food sucks, it’s not on me.
What’s your go to dish and why do you do when something turns out nothing like you imagined?
