The sky is cloudy today. Although it is not raining yet, I am really hoping for it. Oh I miss the rain, and how it makes me feel like living in the dream. To make the delicious meal to suit my hope for rain, I make the most creamy delicious chicken curry and spinach in split pea sauce, serve them hot with rice. It is so yummy, my baby asks for the second plate.
