Deena, EdgyK and I were sitting around the other night discussing food. Because we all like food. Deena told us this marvelous-sounding dish that she had made up (she is creative like that). When she got to the part where she chopped up some fresh basil, EdgyK and I both made faces. "What?" she asked innocently. "Oh, I never have fresh basil. Or any fresh herbs for that matter," said EdgyK. "Me neither," I chimed in. Deena looked vaguely appalled.
The conversation continued and EdgyK mentioned that she hasn't made the Chicken Curry with Cream recipe I gave her because she never remembers to buy cream. I offered up the following: "You can use coconut milk in place of cream."
Deena busted up laughing. "You have coconut milk laying around your house, but you don't have fresh basil?"
"Erm, I make a lot of Indian food."
So tell me, blog darlings, which are you more likely to have in your kitchen?
