Surf and Turf Tumeric Coconut Rice


So it was Valentine’s day and I got the fabulous news that my website was ready. It worked out! I was in awe and speechless because after a while of wondering and wishing, I had my website. Then came the nervous feeling of “what do I make or blog about to debut?” Anyway, I decided to make lunch and viola!!! I was never the kid who liked coconut rice. Firstly, I did not understand the coconut and rice idea and secondly, I had to convince myself that I did not like it because I did not like chores. Especially as the little one in my household, I did not like helping to extract the coconut milk from the coconut. So when I heard there as such thing as the coconut milk I went for it and boy was I pleased!


If you like anything  coconut like I do, you wouls love he smell wafting through your kitchen as it cooks. My debut blog. Let us get right to it!   Tumeric Coconut Rice
