Stone will most likely trip you so you fall into the vat of mayo. He's helpful that way.

As to lunch. IG got a great lunch. I unfortunately live on the stoopid phone.

i had tasty tasty lamb biryani for lunch today... it's my favorite dish at the local indian place (and by "local" i mean "the one i go to regularly", as opposed to the 18 billion other indian restuarants near me).

I made stir fry for dinner. Quite yummy.

I've never eaten Indians.  But then, I usually try to avoid meat.

I haven't actually eaten an Indian, but I did do some good-natured chewing...

I've been tinkering with Indian cooking lately. So far, I've made a pretty good chicken kashmiri, tikka, madras, or (chicken or lamb) vindaloo, and a few other things you don't find in the restaurants. As well as trying some recipies that turned out to be rather awful acquired taste curries that are better left to the real Indians.

Never tried making biryani, but perhaps the best result yet was making a yogurt-based Tikka marinade, and slathering it on some wings before tossing them on the BBQ.

Yeah, sometimes you just have to live with what they're able to cook. The place closest to my office does not know how to make spicy curries (most of their brown curries taste the same, in fact), so you have to stick to the sweeter, creamier curries if you want something different, or realize that the best thing on their menu is actually the sauceless Chicken Tikkas or the Seekh kebab.


(And if you can find an Indian place that makes a good kebab, try it.)

(Of course, you won't know if it's a good kebab, until you try it, so just try it... but a nicely spiced Indian kebab, made out of minced lamb, is just the best thing on earth.)

Do you know the correct way to open a banana?

If you're like most people (including me, until a couple of minutes ago), you probably do something involving the stem end ... trying to break the stem off and then pull the peel off from there.

Monkeys don't do that. When a monkey opens a banana, he just pinches the non stem end, which breaks that end in half, and then the peel comes off in two clean pieces just by pulling on them.

(Thanks to monochrome for this one)

Duke's mayo is the regional fav mayo here. I like making my own. It's a hundred times better. I started making ice cream, it's better than beer here. We got a 'dram' law here, which is if I give somebody beer, I'm liable if he has a wreck.  I bought a copy of Ben & Jerry's cookbook a few years ago, and decided to try it out. Wally mart had the 1.5 quart churn. Come around here, I'll add some fat to your waistline.

rudolf: do those frozen cylinders really stay cold long enough to reliably freeze 1.5 qts of ice cream? It seems like the whole appliance would "thaw" before the job was finished.

The ice cream makers with built in refrigeration systems look really nice, but they're insanely expensive.

IGlet took the lead for dinner tonight. I helped keep him on track but he made all of the big decisions. We decided to go overboard with garlic. Green beans sauteed in garlic and olive oil, and a dish he called "pepperoni pizza chicken" -- boneless chicken sauteed in garlic and olive oil, with melted mozzarella and a chiffonade of crispy pepperoni on top. Dude really blew us away with that one.

That would be "Iron Chef IGlet" nowadays.
