I was skimming through my posts for the year, to see if there was anything I could pull for a Top Ten list.
There really wasn't, and besides, it occurred to me it would be immodest to trumpet my 10 faves.
What I did see was a theme of very casual, comforty food. Bowls of food, pots of food, slow cookers of food.
Then, something caught my eye. My standout purchase of the year, an Asian clay pot. We have used it for so many satisfying meals, tweaking the ingredients and learning the ropes.
A recent tweak was cooking potato and cauliflower in the pot, instead of tofu and mushrooms. And, of course, that calls for curry flavors.
We recently bought a jar of Trader Joe's green Thai curry paste. And we recently bought a jar of Korean gochujang, a red peppery, sweet sauce. Good mixture for this dish. Garlic, of course.
My Top One choice.
