What sort of happy accidents or victories of necessity have you guys come up with lately?
I had to make non-spicy green curry for the missus, because she's not feeling well, but wanted a bunch of coconut, coriander and shrimp... Anyway, fried shishito pepper's a great substitute. I still wound up dicing up a green chili for mine, but it was really good without.
I also made me a little nightcap - probably 30mL of absinthe, a spoonful of pine honey, and some cold water... it's surprisingly good for something I slapped together to help knock myself out. I think this with lemon or blood orange in the summer, with a bunch of ice could be a dangerous thing.
