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.
