Darrell’s Tossed Together Peanut Butter – Curry


Darrell’s Tossed Together Peanut Butter – Curry

I have learned that Curry is a random name for a bunch of different stuff thrown together to make a tasty sauce. For a brief description see Wikipedia:
Curry (play /ˈkʌri/) is a generic description used throughout Western culture to describe a variety of dishes from IndianPakistaniBangladeshiSri LankanThai or other Southeast Asian cuisines. The chief spices found in most South Asian curry powders are turmericcoriander, and cumin; a wide range of additional spices may be included depending on the geographic region and the foods being included (white/red meat, fish, lentils, rice and vegetables).[1]
Curry’s popularity in recent decades has spread outward from Southern Asia to figure prominently in international cooking. Consequently, each culture has adopted spices in its indigenous cooking to suit its own unique tastes and cultural sensibilities. Curry can therefore be called a pan-Asian or global phenomenon with immense popularity in Thai, BritishJapanese and Caribbean cuisines.
I prefer above all else Thai Curry’s. Specifically Red Curry with bamboo shoots. However, I have yet to get the process for making a good Thai curry anywhere close to the restaurants so I don’t even try these days. I just go to a Thai restaurant.
Locally, if you live in the DFW area, a very decent set of Thai Curry dishes is produced by: Sea Siam in Keller Texasa
My favorite Curry Recipe to throw together is a thicker peanut style.

This one has rice, black beans, red kidney beans, ground turkey, and sauce. Simple
Ingredients:
  • Favorite Meat (Ground Beef, Ground Turkey, Cubed Chicken Breasts, and/or other meats)
  • Favorite Veggies (Whatever you have around the house. My favorite are things like Corn, Celery, Bell Peppers, Carrots… whatever you want, sometimes less if more)
  • Favorite Starches/Beans (Rice cooked slightly al dente’, Red Kidney Beans, Black Beans, Whatever you want.


For the Sauce:
  • Butter
  • 1/2 Onion
  • Ketchup
  • Peanut Butter
  • Milk
  • Turmeric
  • Cinnamon
  • Basil
  • Lime (lime juice)(Lemon works too if you don’t have lime)
  • Salt/Pepper
Also Optional are:
  • Pumpkin Spice Seasoning
  • Cumin
  • Heat (by adding Cajun Seasoning, or Chili Powder, or Crushed red pepper, or other hot pepper spice or hot sauce use sparingly and to taste.)
Instructions:
To Cook the Curry Sauce Itself:
  • Melt 2-3 Tablespoons of butter
  • Saute’ in the butter some chopped onions (More or less than a 1/2 an onion your choice I like onions!)
  • Optional affects the taste profile. (Depending on how I feel that day I may also add some fresh chopped garliccloves with the onions)
Once saute’d for a few moments add:
  • Good squeeze of Ketchup (which is really just sugar and tomato paste)(Less than a quarter cup)
  • Two-Four heaping spoons of Peanut Butter (Crunchy works best)
  • 1/2 to 1 cup of Milk (I prefer vanilla soy milk, it adds a sweetness to the sauce)
  • 3 or 4  heavy dashes of Turmeric
  • 4-5 heavy dashes of Cinnamon (Substitute Cinnamon with Pumpkin Spice Seasoning for more complexity)
  • 1-2 Dashes of Basil
  • Squeeze of concentrated lime juice or half a lime.
  • Little bit of salt and pepper
Also Optional:
  • 2-3 dashes of Cumin (optional but adds to complexity)
  • Heat ( Cajun Spice Seasoning)(Or favorite hot pepper spice)
  • Pumpkin Spice Seasoning
  • 1 Tbsp. cinnamon
  • 1-1/2 tsp. ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cloves
  • 1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
If you don’t have pumpkin spice seasoning just add some Cinnamon and Turmeric… all other spices just add to the complexity and make it better but are not essential for the mix. 
The sauce should be the consistency of a runny, maybe even chunky, pancake batter. Don’t cook or simmer too long or the peanut butter will separate into it’s natural oils and ruin the whole batch.
If choosing to serve all combined in a bowl it will more thick not like a soup. Still tasty!
Once ingredients heat to a good steam and bubble remove from heat immediately. 
After getting the sauce ready you can add the sauce on top of Rice, Beans (Black, Red Kidney, and/or Pinto) and Ground Turky or Beef browned, and or Chicken cubed and saute’d. Also feel free to cook your favorite veggies I like Bell Peppers, Carrots, Corn removed from Cobb, Celery, Etc… More or less is all up to you. Try different combinations, or deal with what you have. This is really a toss together meal.
You could also add all these to the curry itself for a more soup like presentation, great with a good Dr. Pepper and garlic toast and a good movie, like Iron Man or Stargate SG1!

The W Story Structure - 4 Sequence Story Structure

Out of everything I've ever read on story structure for fiction writing, the W-Story Structure makes the most sense to me. If you'd rather view these as Acts (3-Act or 4-Act) you can overlay that on this W and it still works.



Glen C. Strathy writes (in much more detail here) in his article, The W-Plot vs. The Dramatica Model of Story Structure. There are four sequences for most stories. Each of the four legs of the W is comprised of a sequence of events that lead the story along to it's natural conclusion.

Sequence 1: setting up the problem (creating tension)Sequence 2: recovering from the problem (new ideas, positive momentum)Sequence 3: deepening of the problemSequence 4: the resolution of the problem (new light or understanding)

Sequence 1: setting up the problem (creating tension)
The Inciting Event (the event that is at the heart of the reason this story happened) may have occurred before your story begins, and often does. In King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (2017), th…

Friendship Return On Investment (ROI)

Are your friendships giving you good ROI, Return On Investment?

Shouldn't I be giving selflessly, not expecting anything in return?
I believe yes and no. 
After spending time reading works by Dr. Henry Cloud... In the Boundaries series... I've come to a realization.
There're certainly going to be occasions where you will invest in someone because you see their potential or because God asks you too. These may not seem like good investments and they may have no visible return that you can see. But they're good seed into God's work in that person's life and therefore still good investments.
But I believe those are the exception. 
In general, those investments above are not friends. Not really. Those are relational, maybe a brother or sister in God's great big family, one of his kids. But they're not friends. I think it's game changing to make…

LIFE Verse Update (See post here)


Think Differently LIVE Differently

Think Differently LEAD Differently

Think Differently LEARN Differently (not yet written)

CS Lewis was a great theologian because he did not have a religious studies background, but a literary and mythologies background. Stories allowed him to dive into Truth in a way that dry study never could.

He used the word Freedom Journey... I liked that. It's not a destination. Not only have I not arrived yet, but I will NEVER arrive. Something things will be catapulted upon leaving this earth, but even then, we will be on an eternity long journey to discover more about God and more about ourselves in God.


Sozo: Salvation, Deliverance, Healing

Study is not about gaining more knowledge, it's about "what do I DO differently?" You can see miracles and still struggle with it mentally. I do! How did he know?

While he was …

Sophist

A sophist was a teacher who used philosophy and rhetoric to teach virtue or excellence.



I came across this term while looking for an "S" word to replace "Thinker"...

Storyteller. Writer. Thinker.

Storyteller. Scribe. S..... Sophist? Scholar? Seeker? Seer? Sage? Standard Bearer?

Still pondering...

What's interesting to me is that the term Sophist later became a derogatory term, to refer to someone who takes money and uses logical fallacies to deceives you.

The reason I find this fascinating... I've heard so many people get mad at a Kenneth Copeland or Joel Osteen because a lot of money flows through their hands. They get called heretics by the religious Pharisees of our day. But I've worked/volunteered around Kenneth Copeland, on his property for three years. I have more respect for him than most Church leaders, by a LONG shot.

They look at the money and think it's inherently evil. Which makes no sense.

Many of those same people might pay to go to a …
