I just felt the need to vent to my Recipeeples. Ever have one of those days where nothing goes right in the kitchen because you're either not paying attention or just having a stupid day?
Tonight I thawed some frozen pumpkin puree to make this year's very last pie. It seemed a bit off, but I'd already blended the eggs and cream by that point, so I figured I had little to lose. Sure enough, the puree texture had gone grainy, and I don't have very high hopes for the pie.
Then I made a butternut squash curry for lunches for the week. The recipe called for one medium squash, about 4 lbs. (Where do these people get their squash?!? That's a big butternut in my world!) So I halved the recipe. Except then peeling and chopping up the squash and potatoes took so long that I forgot I was halving the recipe and put the full amount of liquid in. And then realized I didn't actually have curry powder, so I had to make my own version up (coriander, cumin, turmeric, chili pepper, garlic, ginger? uh...damn).
And I scratched under my eye after dicing a jalepeno.
