I have no idea who Walt is, but this is a recipe from the thrift store cookbook I bought, and it caught my eye because it calls for cantaloupes! I'd love to try this. I imagine that photos of this would look really pretty.

This was good, but a lot more of a saucy-creamy texture than I was expecting. The cantaloupe was good, but having it warm was a little strange.

This turned out better than I could have hoped for! So flavourful, and such a great presentation. I made curried rice and spooned it in a circle around the cantaloupe halves. I also made a salad with pineapple-balsamic vinaigrette to go with it. (We went for a whole Hawaiian themed dinner.) Definitely reccommend it when you've got the time to do something a little different!
