I also used white rice, a real rarity at our house, which made the whole thing all the more delicious because white rice is so sweet and fluffy. I was calling it candy rice which made Matt laugh.

It makes it even more special and I really savor it as a result.

Here is the coconut curry recipe. It originally came from my sister, Lisa, in Washington who wrote in "Lisa Coyote, Super Genius" in the From the Kitchen Of... spot on the recipe card. Thus, I always think of it as the Lisa Coyote's Coconut Curry. It makes me smile.

3 cloves garlic, diced
