So today at work I made 22 dollars in tips. My sales were over 800 bucks. I had to split, so I would've made 44, but still. thats not even 10%. so much for my charming service.

I also learned at work that the secret to the alfredo sauce is adding the parmesean at the end - just folding it into the sauce right after you dump the noodles in. woosh. let it melt for a sec and mmhmmm.

Does anyone know what the proper consistentcy of palak paneer is supposed to be?

At Priya in Troy, it's sort of thick but still kind of pourable.

At Passage to India in Berkley, they call it something else (Shag Ponir I think) and it's more watery and spicy.

Both are actually good, but the weird named one is messy when you try to eat it with naan bread.

Also: Anyone know a really good Indian restaurant that's not crazy expensive?

I went to a good restaurant today: Christine's Cuisine in Ferndale.

It's on 9 Mile near Woodward in a strip mall. The food is really great and the restaurant itself is cute, small and sort of hipster? The waitstaff is nice and there's a lot of stuff on the menu for SUPER CHEAP. Definitely a good place to go for lunch or whatever.

yesterday, my dear friend r. came over to hang out for the morning. i was still walking in to walls, so he learned the mysteries of my coffee maker and made me a big cup of coffee, and then upon realizing that we both probably ought to eat, he made a yummy meal composed of the following (r. is an awesome cook):

onions, browned in butter in a skillet
mushrooms, sauteed till nearly cooked.
eggs, scrambled with everthing else (salt and pepper added at this point)
vermont cabot cheddar, added at the very end.

so good! and i didn't even have to cook it myself!

Hi, welcome!

This is my first post in what I hope will become a diverse community full of interesting discourse. My hopes are very simple.


That is about it.
Oh, wait, Pat is here. Pat, doesn't eating the same thing every day get insanely boring? Not to mention that this isn't 1975, do people even eat bologna today??

My boyfriend and I have been making radioactive muffins. We have been putting neon green food dye in our muffin mixes to create really funny and often ugly muffins. This is by no means a recipe or the extent of our interest in food. I want to post a few photos of said muffins and experiment with other, possibly savory, foods. Also, my cat will eat the muffins if you leave them out. He LOVES muffins.

I've also been making some stir-fry lately.

More to come!
Or should it be...
Bore to come!

I think the greatest diet in the world is one where you eat the same thing everyday. It's so nice not having to worry about things like VARIETY or following directions on the back of a box. So tedious. Here is what I eat nearly everyday:

Breakfast: Healthy Start cereal
Lunch: Bologna sandwich
Snack: Navel orange
Dinner: Skinless chicken breast with vegetables (green beans, broccoli, bell peppers, etc)
Snack: Navel orange

Undoubtedly, I am the king of eating.
