I have been a bad blogger. Like many bloggers, I get various product offers, most of which I ignore but some I take advantage of because I am genuinely interested in the product. One of those was an offer from Superior Nut to send me some of their stuff to test. Of course right after it arrived, Giant Cashews, Tamari Roasted Almonds and Toasted Corn Nuts, I got hit with the gall bladder issues, removing all fat from diet. As a matter of fact, I can hold the corn nuts specifically responsible for some serious pain because we opened them first, and I did not realize I needed to avoid fat until the next day.
At which point I hid it all in the freezer. You see, my children would have eaten the corn nuts without me, and that was not happening. Those things are Evil Good. So good, in fact, that when I finally got them back out and started munching, the bag was basically gone when I realized I never took a photo. Hence my photo of toasted corn nut dregs. But oh-so-good dregs–even the dregs were yummy. I am not ashamed to admit I tilted the bag and poured them into my mouth. (Oh my lord I just realized they sell them covered in chocolate too.)
What about the cashews and tamari almonds? Both good, the cashews especially so. But honestly totally overshadowed by those ridiculously freakin’ delicious corn nuts.
I don’t have a recipe for you today, so much as a reminder and an amendment. The reminder is that summer is The Time for making Thai green curry. The freshly picked green beans, zucchini, eggplant and corn are absolutely splendid with green curry. And the amendment is to my previously posted Thai Green Curry paste. Previously I have never been able to get it green enough because I am always skimping on chile peppers because the heat is too much for Alex. This time, where in the previously posted recipe I used 1/2 cup of chile peppers of choice (green), I used about 1 cup of Anaheim peppers. I thought it was quite successful. I also separately roasted the pork with a soy-fish sauce-garlic-sugar marinade–not necessary, but delicious and it made for a nicer presentation.
