Vegetable Curry

なんだか、さっぱり夕食のメニューが浮かばず、夫に「何にしよう?」と聞いてみたら「今日はジムに行った後だから、ヘルシーなもの」と言われました。夫から「ヘルシーなもの」というリクエストは初めてです(笑)。「あら、そうなの?カレーにしようかと思ったんだけど、ヘルシーじゃないし。」と返事をすると、「カレー!!」と喜んだ返事が返ってきました。「野菜カレーならヘルシー!」とは夫の弁。ルーだけではなくスパイスやトマトも入れますが、日本のカレールーも使うので決してヘルシーとは言い難いですけどね。

By some reason, I couldn’t come up with any good idea for dinner so I asked my husband if he had anything he wants me to cook and his answer was “Something healthy after my gym session.”  I think this was the first time he asked for “something healthy”.  I told him one thing I was thinking of curry but that’s not very healthy… but his reply was “Curry!”.  He says it’s healthy if it’s a vegetable curry.  Well….  I don’t think Japanese curry is actually all that healthy because of the roux…

ということで、今日の夕食は野菜カレー。野菜は、玉ねぎ、人参、じゃがいも、かぼちゃ、いんげんを使いました。毎回カレーのルーの組み合わせもスパイスの量も違うので、味も毎回違います。たまに「なんか足りない」と思うこともありますが、どう作ってもそれなりに美味しくなるのがカレーの良いところ。夫は毎回「今日のは特に美味しい!」と言います(笑)。

Anyway, so, today’s dinner was a vegetable curry with onion, carrot, potato, Japanese pumpkin (kabocha) and green beans.  I use different combination of roux and spices every time (I don’t measure much) so it seems to taste different every time.  Occasionally I feel “Umm, it seems to be lacking something…” but it’s always tasty enough – I think you cannot make bad curry when you use Japanese curry roux.  My husband says “Best ever!” every time I cook curry and he did today, too.

少し前からハーフマラソンが終わるまで家ではお酒を飲まないと言っていた夫、カレーをビールなしで食べられるかな?と思いつつ一応聞いてきましたが、やはり今日は「1本だけ」とビールも(笑)。まぁ、そこまで必死で走っているわけではないので、適度に、で良いのではと。

A week or so ago, my husband told me he wasn’t going to have alcohol at home except for weekends until his half marathon, but today he did have beer (just 1 bottle between 2 of us).  It’s not as if he is running so seriously so it’s OK, I think.
