Something New Day 4: Coconut curry!

Well, to be fair, every day in the kitchen is a little bit of an adventure for me, as I don't have a list of set recipes that I follow. Usually it goes along the lines of rice/pasta/noodles, vegetables, maybe some meat, and a bunch of spices or sauce. Last night, though, I felt bored and uninspired by my latest dish, so I decided to do something I never do - to follow an internet recipe.

Actually, that failed, as I couldn't find half the ingredients - but I did go to the shops especially to buy things for a dish, which I never do (usually I try to use everything I have left - not always tasty!). The original recipe required lemongrass, limes and even apricots, but what I made was chicken with coconut milk and a variety of spices (plus lots of tomatoes and onion). Instead of rice, I used couscous. It was nice!

Another new thing that I did today was give advice on relationships during a life coaching session. I've normally dealt with things like "Should I quit my job?" "How can I start a new business?" or "How can I lose weight?", but this was new ground for me. Of course, I have plenty of ideas and I spent a couple of hours reading up on relationship coaching techniques, but for the first actual session using it I think it went quite well! If any of you are feeling brave and have any relationships that you want to work on (it could be your relationship with a family member, a friend or a co-worker), remember that I offer a 30 minute free coaching consultation over Skype - it's free and it will give you the chance to find out how I can help you make things a bit clearer! Email me here if you fancy adding "got life coaching" to your list of new things... [/shameless self advertising]
