Last week at work my mother texted me. Usually these texts are semi-comical, and this one was no exception. "Woo hoo got good cable channels back after complaining I can't see honey boo boo- now we have good channels!" Do we actually watch Honey Boo Boo consistently? No- but, for a while we were only limited to a few channels, one of which was the Food Network. By all means that is not a terrible thing for a foodie like myself, but when Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives is the only show on, you get a bit stir crazy. Is this recipe name a slight poke at "triple d" for naming it a "triple c" curry- possibly. But, sometimes it is just an easy to target to chuckle at the man wearing his sunglasses flipped back around his neck and having some spicy mayo or lettuce flop from of his mouth because he is indulging at some dive while simultaneously trying to explain to viewers the taste of the dish. Regardless of television frustration or "crying" for the mere fact you cannot hear Honey Boo Boo tell you about My momma, the coupon QUEEN, this curry is a nice hearty meal packed with flavor that might just make you yell A dolla makes me holla honey boo-boo child!
