New Frontiers

I’m still riding the motivation train at work brought on by the Monday mutants. But nothing exciting to tell you from science land today. Those announcements are rare, which makes them all the more exciting.

This evening, I tried out a recipe I’ve had before but never made for myself. Indian food and I don’t always get along. I think it’s a few spices in particular that are in some dishes but not all… Anyway, the Indian food I’ve enjoyed has either been made by my coworker, Avinash, or it has been a recipe from one particular cookbook. That book is a beginners’ guide to cooking Indian food at home from two restaurateurs in Vancouver, BC.
Vij’s At Home: Relax, Honey: The Warmth and Ease of Indian Cooking has a nice mix of vegetarian and meat or fish curries along with some essential condiments like chutney, yogurt sauce, etc…

My first dish: Mushroom Medley with potato curry.

It’s good! It’s also a great way to use up leftover buttermilk. (A person can only make so many pancakes).

Topping off a mildly successful day in the lab with an incredibly successful dinner – that makes for a very satisfying end to the day.
