Chef Attempts

After making myself physically ill with experimental "Bean Patties" I understandably began questioning the wisdom of me being in the kitchen. Curled up on the living room carpet with my aching stomach I had to smile at the utter ridiculousness of it. I mean, what kind of cook gets sick on their own cooking? A bad one apparently. Oh well. I didn't take it too much to heart and endorsed Mother's decision to feed the poison patties to the birds.

A week later, I am happy to report, I somewhat reclaimed my status in the kitchen. Mom had bought Tempeh as a treat. Not having a clue what to do with it, I did some quick hunting on the internet. In the end I went with a recipe I hoped tasted as good as it sounded: "Tempeh Curry with Sweet Potatoes and Green Beans". It did! I substituted key ingredients, burned the Tempeh and over-filled the pan, but even I couldn't ruin it!
