I used to be a Walmart girl. I went to college in southern Arkansas and then to graduate school at THE University of Arkansas (woo Pig!), so you’d think it would be safe to assume that I support the home team and shop at Walmart. Uh-uh. Not if I can avoid it. I can’t tell you the number of times that I’ve been there and not been able to push a cart down the aisle for all the mess that’s been in the middle of it. The last time I darkened their doors was the day I had to go SEVEN aisles out of my way before I could get a wheelchair around the restocking stuff. Tell us, Susan, how you really feel? This was not intended to be a ranty post, but apparently I have deep-seeded issues about Walmart. Let’s continue onto other more pleasant things, like the purpose of this essay, which would be about the lovely and clean and open-aisled place called Target.
So I’m at the Target (yes, I occasionally lapse into poor grammar. That’s how I roll when I don’t feel like using my post-graduate degree) the other day and I found a little jar of randomness that I stuck in my cart. Do you do this? I’m usually one of those people that sticks to the list, but sometimes I purposefully go without a list to try and get inspired. I was inspired to the tune of about $400 once with a Kate Spade purse. Oh, how it called my name.
You gotta’ love Indian food. I just discovered it in the last couple of years. There are waaay too many ingredients for me to try cooking it at home, but when I saw this little jar of Archer Farms Vindaloo Simmer Sauce, I just had to try it. Did you notice that little shout-out, Target people? Let me tell you, 4-6 people read my blog. I can move MAJOR merchandise for you. Have your people call my people. Oh, and dear reader, did you notice the jar was empty (and out of focus)? It was so good that I dug through the trash to haul it out so that I can share it with you. This is how desperate I am for a blog post today delicious it is.
To prepare, take chicken parts, brown them in a tiny bit of oil/butter, then pour the jar on top. Put the lid on, and let it simmer for half an hour. Seriously, that’s all there is to it. It’s even easier and quicker if you have chopped, cooked chicken in your freezer. No browning necessary – just dump, heat and serve over rice.
Hope you have a great day shopping at TARGET. And happy eating.
