Tonight I made Lamb Vindaloo.

I have a potluck coming up next week at work that celebrates the Indian festival of Diwali, so I've been making and trying out some dishes this week. For the past 6 years, I'm the only American in my office that's been repeatedly been invited to participate in the potluck. However, unlike my Indian and Pakistani coworkers, I have to practice and research the food and culture, in order to not embarrass myself.

I have been ordering groceries online. Most of the time that's great, but there can be surprises. I ordered ground pork and got "escalope", which is French for "scallopini, in other words, sliced to about a half a centimetre thick. So, I finally got around to cooking it into schnitzel. It was easier than pounding the meat, but not quite as tender, but still really good. Served it with potatoes. I wanted to do veg, but I wouldn't have made supper if I had had to put in more effort.

Happy birthday-happy year, tenspeed! And canned soup at home is better than Applebee's, IMO.

We had mostly leftovers - mac-and-cheese, potato salad, coleslaw for Himself - along with fried cod from the grocery store, and sliced tomatoes. Still didn't make enough room in the fridge. I shopped...and now have overflow produce in a cooler with a juice bottle of ice.

Mom had a Dr appointment yesterday at 1pm, so we had had a light breakfast, and I fixed what would have been for breakfast for supper last night. Homemade french toast with a wildflower honey ham steak. First time I've tried one of those and it was pretty good. I also got a cherry-wood smoked one. Think I will fix that with some mac&cheese and a salad for supper tonight.

Yesterday was my birthday and I got to pick anywhere to go for dinner. I picked a local fish 'n chips place. I love our new town - there are so many great places to eat very close.

We ended up sharing a platter for two. It had Halibut strips, large shrimp and onion rings, all battered and fried, over a bed of the best fries around and a side of coleslaw. There was more than enough food for both of us and it was crazy good! Best birthday food ever! (well next to crescent hot dogs stuffed with cheese and served with tater tots when I was a kid!
