An itty bitty update

My mother in law went to India and brought home some great spices that aren't available in SD. They came in this little wooden box which I thought was so cute. So here it is with Leslie's housewarming gift. Perfect wrapping.

I can't wait to use the Indian spices for a yummy curry. Brad and I really enjoy eating and making curry. We also received some beans and lentils unavailable in SD so we need to learn a bit about how to make and prepare those. There is an Indian Restraunt in Rapid City that also offers cooking classes. I feel a cooking adventure coming on!

That's all for this itty bitty update! -Alison

Yum...Indian spices. What kind are they? We're blessed to be living in an area that's ethnically diverse so we've got some very good Indian markets. If you like vegetarian food, try to find a copy of Yamuna Devi's book Lord Krishna's Cuisine. It's a veritable compendium of Indian vegetarian cooking. The dessert section alone is worth it. She has the best Ras Malai recipe. The latest issue of Cook's has a very good recipe for Chicken Tikka Masala as well. Let me know how the cooking class is if you take it.

Fun - if you need anything else from India I'm going there in October for work. Have fun cooking up a storm!
