Rice soaked and yellowed
in steaming, spiced curry
dance around the cooking bowl,
as they collide with chicken legs
and thighs once in a while...

My family sits around the table,
with anticipation visible
with their salivation. They can
smell a Swahili cuisine
from the dining room.

I wait for stew above the rice
to disappear,
then I give the green light
with sounds of cutlery
and wine glasses....

    Teddy, just finished my nightly curry bowl! this week I nearly finished my alternate version with Native Harvested Wild Rice from Northern Minnesota near Lake Superior! often, I utilize Goat Meat as my chosen protein, with fresh ginger, turmeric & habaneros! My daughter gave me Garam Masala she brought back from India & fresh Cinnamon Bark! I cook my brown or wild rice with this heavenly flavor! jimbo
