I also never thought about adding chocolate to a savory dish until DH made the Chili con Carne with dark chocolate. Well, it did create a different richness in flavor. So, we will also add a bit of dark chocolate to the homemade bolognese.Ha. There is a Hershey's chocolate ad on this page as I read it!
I like our homemade curry but it is simply using a curry powder in what would otherwise be stew. No, I don't follow a recipe of ingredients or amounts but it's a common meal for us. And then, we may add the curry powder. An ad or no ad•vertisement, using chocolate wouldn't have occurred to me .
I'd like to think that I might make different meals just by playing around with the separate ingredients in the curry powder. That might be fun aaaannd tasty!
For sure! If I like something well enough to cook it, you better believe it will be my dinner (and often lunch or even breakfast as well) until it is gone. In the case of a pasta or rice dish, I usually make enough to freeze half so that I can thaw it out later to eat for another week. Cooking something different each day seems like a colossal waste of time and energy, which is almost as bad as wasting food in my book.Leftovers, leftovers, leftovers...
