I made a run to Wal-mart this morning so cooking supplies would be in for nasty weather. Tonight I made a new dish, Pushpa's Curry. I am not overly fond of curry, but this recipe was easy and fast and tasty. Although the original cook used lamb or monkey in the recipe, I don't care for mutton and the monkey market was closed today! It uses coconut, peppers, peas, and curry among other things. I found the recipe on my friend's new blog, Grandma's Orchard. Find the recipe and visit Kathleen at http://grandmasorchard.blogspot.com/2011/03/winds-from-east.html.
I added a new Greek salad to the meal which was as good as Pushpa's Curry over rice. Really, I think any salad can be Greek when you toss in feta cheese, Kalamata olives and shake up a biting oil and vinegar dressing. I am so ready for fresher vegetables and salad fixings. I did find some nice radishes today. But oh, some nice tomatoes and cukes and food grown in real dirt...doesn't the idea of seeing the Farmer's Market again sound good! Until then, I guess I will keep those bean pots and vegetable soups going for the weekend. If it is cold outside, it will also still be tea and toast weather too. Bring on the butter! These hips can take it!
