MORE FLAVOR WITH YOUR FRY AND KETCHUP COMBO
A LOVE DAY (FEB 14th) TREAT
I was just going to blaze right by this recipe and never share it on the blog. I shared it on other social media platforms, but usually whenever I plan to do a blog post, I go into the kitchen with that intention, and that intention produces multiple mental or physical sketches and progress shots that I can then share. But with this one, that intention wasn’t there. I mostly enjoyed the colors of this photo, and that was my intention–capture beautiful food on a beautiful Sunday.
I’m always in the kitchen, and I do cook a lot without the intention of sharing it because that sharing turns into a huge production that often times steals the joy of just living in the moment. Cooking without thinking of the end product, cooking without taking notes on how many tablespoons went in that, or this–I’m really into that kind of cooking. To take notes every time I start chopping an onion or whenever I pull of my electric mixer and some vanilla is a habit that I’m consciously trying to learn in order to stretch myself, but it’s also a habit I recognize as stiffening to my creative process and not necessarily what my heart believes in either. I do believe that cooking is an intimate and vulnerable performance, that is sometimes only just for those close few who know you so well. Other times, I want to challenge myself to open up to a larger world, and give away something tangible and useful, like a recipe. Perhaps there’s a fortunate balance somewhere I’ll find. To give, but to take care of the source first. So again, like I said, I wasn’t going to share this recipe, but because it was delicious, simple, and I think it might inspire someone to eat more curry ketchup, Which is what I’m alllll about. I’m putting up my one photo, and I’m telling you how I clearly remember it being made. Also the heart made out of curry ketchup is a reminder that we ate/ and made these fries on Love Day (feb 14th)!
