Sorry folks haven't posted an original recipe in a long time. But then, I've been in the middle of a move and so completely out of the kitchen. Now, if I may lend you some kitchen related advice (if you ignore this you will get yourself a recipe for disaster, as I did), as and when you are moving from one end of the country to the other (or to somewhere in the middle, as in my case) and you are employing a mover make sure that you do not ask them to pack in all your kitchen utensils. Thats exactly what I did.
I physically moved to MI on 8/1 and the movers still have not arrived. So I have been left with eating frozen TV dinners (the oven being my only cooking tool).
Yeah! Why don't I eat out? I am officially broke - at least till all my first pay cheque comes in and I start getting reimbursed for my moving expenses
Why don't I get myself a bare-bone kitchen utensil set? Heres my sad story. I don't have a car so I am yet to drive around this new town to find an appropriate place to buy utensils. However, yesterday I made an honest attempt. Looked up the map and trudged down a couple of miles to the nearby strip mall. But alas! I couldn't find a place where they sold utensils ... I was only looking for a saucepan.
However, I did hunt down a stainless steel bowl and a set of paper plates and plastic spoons so I can at least boil rice and dal.
Of course I still have to get off my computer and trudge to the grocery store so I can buy the stuff I need to boil.
Isn't it interesting, I made it a point to have the net up and running at home but completely goated out on the kitchen bit.
