I usually have at least a few cookbooks out from the library. They inspire me, entertain me and provide me with a stockpile of recipes to try. Checking out new cookbooks is also a good way to keep up with food trends. You’d think I’d have enough recipes by now, but I can’t seem to stop. . .
I tried this recipe on a whim a few years ago, not completely convinced my husband would like it. He isn’t a big fan of curry powder. But he loves this, helped in no small part, I suspect, by the peanut garnish.
OK, I’ll be straight with you. These don’t taste like french fries. And they aren’t quite as crisp, though the cornmeal coating helps. But they are good, especially with ketchup or another sauce (barbecue and Wow Wee come to mind).
We loved this soup. The combination of sweet potatoes and creamy gouda, with a little bacon throw in, is irresistible. Slices of mushroom add meatiness.
