Indian Food Wednesday!

Chicken tikka masala, it’s been way too long.

Chicken tikka  1 of 1

Tuesday night, while setting out the ingredients for Wednesday’s slow cooker destiny, I thought to myself, “This could totally become a regular thing again!”

And then I started making everything and very quickly changed my mind.

Spices  1 of 1

Anyone else get a little intimidated to see more than 15 ingredients and a very long prep process?

At the same time, it actually felt very luxurious to take my time and actually cook. Meals have been so fast and furious lately -10 minutes or less to prep is the standard- it was almost a form of meditation to measure components, grind cardamom, peel and grate fresh ginger.The Pilot was watching TV, Liv and the pups were fast asleep, and it was just me, some chicken and a whole heck of a lot of spices.

Most of the time, I love to cook.  I can’t wait for a chance to try out a new recipe or make an old favorite for dinner (all while singing “Bringing home a baby bumblebee,” doing a ridiculous dance or orchestrating a Tupperware drum solo). Other times, I want my food delicately placed on the […]

Indian food dreams

curry and dosa

Sometimes you have to count on someone else to help out with the meals. Like Joe the Trader. Something about swimming –or bopping around holding a heavy baby- makes me so hungry. The Pilot was also starving when we got back home, so he did the bedtime routine with Liv while I whipped up a […]

A little too lifelike


Look who scared the life out of me: At work, they’re always adding new decor, and that statue is newest addition around the corner by the water fountain. I thought it was a real, nekkid man and it frightened me a little. World beat was a lot of fun this morning. The drummers and my […]
