My favorite part of this evening took place in our tiny kitchen in the city. The only area with a counter top is roughly two and a half feet long. It barely fits Steve and I at the same time, yet this does not keep us from our love of cooking together. Since moving to Chicago we have upped our healthy food game with inspiration from two cookbooks, Thug Kitchen and Whole 30.
This evening we peeled and chopped turnips, sweet potatoes, carrots, rutabaga, and parsnips. I spread them out on a large cooking sheet to roast while Steve cooked sausage and made a coconut curry sauce.
Once our root vegetable curry was complete we sat down together to enjoy. It was spicy and sweet. And as we enjoyed our healthy home cooked meal I looked across at Steve and felt delighted with our scrumptious creation and our lovely evening chopping and cooking our night away in our tiny kitchen.

Sounds like a lovely night and a lovely dinner! Are you happy with the recipe?
Yes. The recipe was delicious. We will definitely make it again.
So many old memories are built around food. I have put both of those cookbooks on hold at the library.
I hope you enjoy them! The ‘Whole 30’ cookbook has tons of recipes and ‘Thug Kitchen’ has very unique recipes.
Oh, Angela, this is so good!! I love your ending and how you circled back to the tiny kitchen. Gave me goosebumps. It’s so… sweet, the two of you in the kitchen. 🙂
I’m noticing how your writing is slowly evolving each day… it’s getting more and more narrative and crafty and I love every minute of it.
Thank you, Dana! That means so much. Narrative writing is a stretch for me. 🙂
