VH Sauce, Shopping Misadventures and Kitchen Victories

I stumbled on a delicious-looking dish while searching for recipes on VH Sauce. Here’s the back story. If you’re anything like me (and I think you are), you look at your fridge and take a moment to sigh. Because everything is so BORING! It’s at this moment, which happens more than I care to admit, I go to the computer and start looking up recipes.

VH Sauce

Yellow Thai Curry with VH Sauce

So the recipe looked tasty. Unfortunately, I had to fetch the linchpin ingredient before I could start cooking so I took a quick trip over to Walmart (I’ve seen it spelled Wal-Mart too, is this a language progression? Just curious) as it was already getting late.

Before I left I made sure my store stocked the sauces and took a quick screenshot to remind myself of what I was getting. Because I tend to forget why I go places.

This is also why I generally make a list and check it twice before going to the store. But I was embarking on a marathon cooking session and was dangerously low on sugar…so I went outside of my regular routine and set off for adventure!

Finding the sauce was easy—the VH brand covers the aisle quite completely

My only real problem was I didn’t take note of the actual sauce or recipe I was shopping for so I was overwhelmed when looking at the sauce aisle. I finally came home with two: Sweet Thai Chili and Korma. Yum! Oh, and I remembered the sugar too.

How did this happen? Well I think it’s obvious. I didn’t make a list, I didn’t check it twice, and I didn’t remember I was going to get YELLOW CURRY SAUCE.

But I still needed dinner. So I made the original recipe with the sweet chili sauce and it turned out…AMAZING! So saucy, so spicy, so tasty.

I’ve added more photos from this shopping misadventure in my Google+ album so feel free to check it out/shower my cooking prowess with compliments. You can also see what else I accomplished in my midnight cooking marathon.

Oh, and my original photo for this post was kind of boring so I baked up some kale chips (first time attempting—easy and tasty!) for garnish. Highly recommended.
