Coconut Ramen Curry.
Sounds boring and uninformative.
How do you name recipes anyway?
Should I have added the word Thai in there? I mean, it tasted like a dish you would get at a Thai restaurant.
Should I have said the word peanut because the recipe contains peanut butter?
All recipe titles tend to sound the same for me. They go in one ear and out the other.
My roommate came in and asked me what I was making….
“I mean, it’s like a ramen soup but has coconut milk and curry paste in it. It’s probably gona be like a thai noodle soup that’s like curry.”
That’s honestly a bit how my mind works around food. I’m indecisive, so I add a little bit of everything to cover all my bases.
Maybe one day I will get more creative and decisive at naming the dishes I create. The title of a recipe is like a hook. If I saw a cocktail recipe titled giggle juice, of course I am going to try it out, versus if it was called lemonade G&T’s.
I have no intention of being a food blogger that talks incessantly about every thought she had when making said recipe. And here I am, doing just that. Sorry ya’ll.
But here is one of my recipes that I didn’t follow a recipe for! A little inspiration from Pinterest and a heap of creativity go a long way!
Sorry for the not very professional picture. Hey, looks aren’t everything. The bowl was burning my hand and I was beyond ready to eat it anyway. Sheesh.
