    Excellent ideas! Chicken korma, yum. Do you use a jar, or make a sauce or?
    I have exercise on Monday & Wednesday nights that goes until 8pm, so we’ve turned those into catch-as-catch-can nights, which sometimes Bob makes something*. (And yes of course I snack before I go, 8pm, omg.) *Something being, in the past, pasta-based, but he’d like to get away from simple starches because they trigger more desire for simple starches, so we may play around with brown rice, or quinoa, or other.

    Now that it’s summer and squash is back in season at the farmers market, we’re back doing the calabacitas soft tacos. Filling = summer squash, onions, maybe corn, maybe soy beans for protein. It’s really good.

    Homemade, adapted from a recipe from Kate.
    Quick Chicken Korma

    • 3 Tbl oil
    • 1 sm onion, chopped
    • 1 Tbl ginger, minced (jarred is fine)
    • 1 Tbl garlic, minced (jarred is fine)
    • 1 tsp Garam Masala powder
    • 1 Tbl ground cumin
    • 1 Tbl ground coriander
    • 1 tsp salt
    • 1/4-1 tsp cayenne
    • 1 can diced tomatoes
    • 1 or 1.5 lb boneless chicken thighs, cut into bite-sized pieces
    • 4 c chopped cauliflower (or a 1-lb bag frozen cauliflower florets, thawed and drained)
    • 2 “ice cubes” of cream or coconut milk (about 3-4 Tbl)

    1. Heat the oil, then sauté the onion, ginger, and garlic in the oil until it just starts to brown.
    2. Add all spices and tomatoes. Simmer for 3-4 minutes.
    3. Add the chicken, cover, and simmer until cooked (about 10 minutes). If using raw cauliflower, add it now. If using frozen, add it in the next step.
    4. Uncover, add the frozen cauliflower (if using) and cream, and simmer until heated through.
