Do you love hot and spicy foods or do you avoid them for fear of what tomorrow might bring?
I enjoy moderately spicy foods. If the food makes my eyes water and my nose run, it’s too hot for me.
I’m developing a taste for good Indian cuisine. My first taste of it was in the South of England over 20 years ago, when I ordered curry at a rural pub. It was fabulous, and I had asked for mildly hot, so I could enjoy the flavors. Since then, my daughter married a young man who grew up in Kenya. Lots of people from India there, and he grew up enjoying the real thing. He and my daughter enjoy preparing different recipes, and I’m learning to enjoy eating them 🙂
My poor husband, on the other hand, prefers his food completely naked. No herbs, no spices, and go light with the salt and pepper, please. If I serve tacos, he omits the mild salsa. No curry for him. No hot, spicy anything. I’ve compromised by learning to cook for these different tastes in one pan. I bought a divided skillet so that I can season my portion and not affect his at all.
The things you do for love.
