Spring Fever

I love this city around late spring – full, green leaves, kids voices through the open windows playing across the way, the smell of dirt, dew and flowering trees – Renewal.

 Ah Edmonton, I shall never complain about your warmth.

 Summer is an opportunity to meet with our neighbours on a daily basis.  Kids riding bikes out front, a park in the back, late sun-sets.  Earth is suggesting you should be awake as long as possible in these climes (early sleep is for winter).  Bed times are mere suggestions, and dinner time: well, that’s often a mere suggestion as well.  As a lover of all foods nutritious, snackable, and easily translated to a party, here is one that I plan on using throughout the summer of 2014:

 A condiment inspired by a couple that exudes the warmth of an Alberta summer:

 Charlene + Chris’s Green Curry Dip

 1 onion, 3 garlic cloves, 1 tbsp ginger (minced) – sautée for 10 min in 1 tbsp canola oil

 Add 1 tbsp green curry paste

 Add a bit of water

 Add 1 c. coconut milk, 1 tbsp brown sugar (or to taste), 1 chopped head of a cauliflower

simmer 30 min

 Blend in processor while adding ½ c. oil

 Adjust seasoning

 Serve warm or chilled with yummy accompaniments.
