Cooking with a Friend

I had a friend over for dinner after eating in for 17 days. It was nice to make chicken curry from the recipe on the coconut milk can (no gluten!) and then use a gluten-free yellow cake mix to make a coconut lime cake. We spent hours pouring over cookbooks and swapping recipes.

And today, I found the following fortune in my wallet from a meal long ago: “Cooking is easy. Doing dishes is the hard part.”

Well, I am getting faster at washing dishes by hand. And cooking is getting easier. I’m learning.

Photo: I went to visit Suzy Anderson yesterday, and we made this awesome coconut cake with icing and a lime glaze. Two 9-inch layers, coconut topping. It was absolutely delicious!

Squash, onion, red bell pepper, chicken, chicken broth, and coconut milk. Served with rice, and topped with chopped almonds and basil. We had a lot of fun.
