I think I've gotten cocky lately, lost my focus, if you will. At least that what recently botched dinners might say. Of late there's been a 4 1/2 pound corned beef brisket overcooked beyond recognition, a 3 pound turkey breast with a raw center, and a sweet potato falafel thing I desperately wanted to like but couldn't. Be soothed in knowing my debacles continue. Typing recipes on a blog does not lead to perfection.
To get my groove back I needed to prepare a winner dish. I turned to Curried Chickpeas and Vegetables from Joy of Cooking, recommended by Sister-in-law Amy. Under/over cooking nearly impossible. I served this dish to company. And they liked it, or so they said. Either way, focus has been restored.
