While I did laundry and ran some errands, Henry got busy in the Nutty Kitchen. We had our wonderful friends Amy and Zach over for dinner and enjoyed what we call an orgasmic meal together. The only thing that Henry let me do was to chop the Serranos, otherwise, I got to chill and have wine with my girlfriend and catch up. I am so lucky!
See if you can replicate this, it’s not difficult, it just takes a little more time due to the Tamarind, but it is such a delicious celebration that it is worth the extra effort. This recipe serves 4. Let us know what you think. Jo and Henry!
