Saturday...

.... Today's task at hand is an adventure in the kitchen... boldly going, people, boldly going.... see, down in the ethnic food desert that I live in, the culinary cutting-edge is bad Mexican or over-cooked Italian... and since I woke up this morning with a hunger for Tikka, I'm on a mission...

... I'm thinking chicken tikka... but, man, I'd kill for some lamb... problem is that all the rough and tough citizens of this county view lambs as pets.... or just something to decorate a field with... instead of the juicy little critters they are... a little mint sauce, some boiled potatoes, and a nice hunk of tender lamb... these yokels don't know what they're missing....

... but I digress... no lamb for me... I'm forced to whip up my Indian with yardbird instead...

... and to add an extra level of fun to my barren existence, I'll be attempting the first ever creation of unleavened bread in my humble home... a garlic and cheese nan bread... if it all works out, today should totally rock...

.... oh, and I'll be drinking lots of beer too... don't forget the beer..

Yer gonna make naan? The onion ones are my fav. Also partial to anything madras, and don't spare the hot chiles. Good luck, chief. Hope you fair better than I did with this morning's excursion.

Yep.....skunked again.

I am soooo envious of your ability to even prepare your self a great meal. No its not the skills you posess it is the availabilty of ingredients. Around where I live it is almost impossible to find ethnic foods,actually if you can find soft tacos it is a miracle. Well enjoy the fixens !!!

I reckon with enough beer even yardbird can be choked down

I've never had Lamb. It's one of those meats I'd like to try, and at least this one is legal.

As for the rest... Indian food.. BLECH! I'd rather eat a shoe in-liner.

AWTM - can you run by the airport and pick me up on the way?

Sounds yummmy. We're just having plain old fashioned chicken fried steak, mashed potatoes, cream gravy and green beans. I'd like to see you post your recipes, though.

You know, you can't throw a stick around here without hitting a three Mexican restaurants...you'd think one of them would manage to rise above mediocrity....

Me? I'm all about the Vindaloo.

Now, if only I could talk my digestive tract into that same notion....

Fresh young lamb??? I know a place near here that probably wouldn't miss one...heh.

Delivered live to your door. Have your K-Bar handy, you'll have to slaughter it yourself. I don't dress lamb.

Pay, you ask??? Just invite me to dinner, and make sure it's cooked to pink perfection. Don't overcook it!

To Arrathorn: Sorry you can't find things in your area...down here in the mountains we can find most any ethnic product we want. If not, we can order it.

We ain't all about hogs, coons and 'possums, although a nice pig is wonderful, turning on a spit abve a hickory slow fire, as is one baking all day in a firepit.

The South ain't what people from other regions think it is, really never has been that.

We love our food, and seek it wherever good food is found, no matter the country of origen.

Is it a quibble to point out that naan is indeed leavened?

No matter. Anyone who gets an Indian Food Jones from time to time is on my Eatin' Buddies list...lamb vindaloo...rogan josh...chicken tikka masala...it's all good. When you and Fiona find yourselves down Atlanta way, you are on notice that you shall be fed...the aformentioned goodies may be washed down with a good-quality IPA (that's India Pale Ale, not isopropanol)...or Lagavulin...

.. I stand corrected, Elisson... the bread was a trainwreck anyway.. it didn't want to leaven...
