Hey, everyone. Busy day…

Hey, everyone. Busy day at the office today -- spent much of it spiffying up my boss's web page -- take a look and let me know what you think. A better caduceus would be muchly appreciated.

Dance last night was fabulous fun -- English country dances (I had forgotten how much flirting goes on at SCA events...:-). I'm definitely going to go back next week -- my one regret is that I didn't start doing this a month ago. You may have noticed by now that I have a bad tendency to get enthused about exercise, do it vigorously for a while, and then drop it entirely... (sigh) Oh well. I'll try to be better about this...

Counter indicates page has broken 400,000!

Lots more work to do, so I have to go. One of you wrote asking about the potato curry I mentioned -- here's the recipe, in case anyone else is interested. I forgot to mention the curry powder in the version I mailed out!!!

Sri Lankan Potato Curry

  • 3 small yellow onions, chopped
  • 1 T vegetable oil
  • two pinches black mustard seed
  • two pinches cumin seed
  • 1 T (or more to taste) red or brown curry powder (buy in Indian stores - you can make this with yellow but it'll taste very different)
  • 3 medium baking potatoes, cubed
  • 2 tomatoes, chopped (can substitute 3 T ketchup (my mom does))
  • 1/2 c. milk, optional
  1. Fry onions 1st four ingredients till onions are translucent.
  2. Add red curry powder and cook till you start to cough (if you manage to find brown curry powder, you can simply add it with the potatoes in the next step).
  3. Add potatoes and tomatoes and cook covered on medium high (add water, as necessary, to prevent burning)
  4. When potatoes are cooked through, serve (or add milk, stir, and serve).

You can vary it a lot (adding cinnamon, cardamom, cloves to the onions, a dash of worcestershire sauce with the ketchup, some lemon juice, coconut milk instead of regular), but that's the basic recipe.
