Recipe + Review: The Silent Patient + Lightened Up Curry Chicken Recipe!

It's Friyay ya'll! I've personally been a bit under the weather the last couple of days and kind of just vegging out to TV on the couch while I recover so I haven't gotten a lot of reading done *woe is me*. I hope everyone had a fab-u-lous Valentines day, celebrating it however you enjoy or not celebrating it at all! I personally hate going out on important days (holiday, birthday, whatever) and prefer to cook at home. So I made my husband some Belizean food in honor of our Honeymoon and we had a very nice, very low-key evening with our pupper. However, I'm going out of town this weekend so I've got a lot of car hours ready for me to burn through some reads! I was killing the reading game in January but I've fallen a bit behind in February but we've got time to make that up! Anyway, today I'm bringing ya'll a review for The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelides along with a recipe for a lightened up chicken curry!
