What has Celebration, nomination and sticky pork got to do with each other? Nothing really, except my heart is doing little somersaults every time I look back at the word nomination beside my name. Before I continue on that nomination let me start with the celebratory news; with my one year blog anniversary fast approaching, I am just in the midst of a lot of new changes, for the blog and my personal life as well. With the likes of a new job (woooooo! oh my i’m excited) and a new house (wooooooo! some more excitement), my life is taking a huge detour for the better. And to add to all this celebratory news.. ‘the nomination’ for a storytelling award.
I have been meaning to work on my first Risotto for about a year now; it was one of 2 food related new years resolutions, the second being baking bread… it will come, I am going to do it before the end of 2012 for sure. I have seen, heard and read about a lot of Risotto recipes; creamy delicious, broth drenched granules of rice. I had picked up my Arborio rice about 2-3 months ago… and snip snip, the packet was finally opened. Continue reading
Finally I have managed to catch the bug again.. the writing bug that is. Feels good and I am so happy I can finally put my thoughts and ideas on paper… or the web rather. There has been so much going on, I am struggling making time for myself to breathe. So here’s a quick catch up.
Yes! Yes! I know it isnt Indian Independence day; but this was a post that got lost amidst a whole lot of other things. I am often scared to try out indian recipes, only because I find them so long and the process of things seem never-ending. Dont get me wrong.. I LOVE indian food.. I mean i absolutely HEART IT! But its easier to eat than to cook it.
Its been everywhere, and I’m not sure when the fig season is but I cant go past a crate of the juicy purplish little drop-shaped fruits without picking a few. There have been times when I have been tempted to pop one of those little things right into my mouth, but my mommy taught me better; so no fruit goes into my mouth without being washed.
Food is always on my mind regardless of where I am, even more so when I travel cause I am so nosey and just have to know what everything tastes like.. well as long as it looks appetizing atleast. I stay away from things that still move… *shiver* . I had visited Nepal and they definitely didn’t have any live foods in sight, but infact they did have scrumptions amounts of Momos, and I will tell you more about them in my upcoming post. So now I feel terrible about my weight gain in Nepal, hence the last few posts have been focussed on getting me to shed those pounds; including a strenuous bootcamp at 6 in the a.m. plus running for 30-45 minutes and a whole lot of leaf eating… granted it isn’t really working, but atleast I can say I tried.
I’m a big fan of the 60′s and what a dancy number that was. With Gene Vincent playing in the background there I was hopping around, dancing in the kitchen and preparing a quick snack for me and myself
Be Bop A Lula she’s my baby
And this little snack is honestly the easiest thing in the world. The tuna paste can be used quite flexibly in whatever you want and however you want. Its great in sandwiches, over rye bread, in a pasta salad or even with just some lettuce or really anything you can think of. I prepared this for the bachelorette I had earlier this year too. If you have made too much of it.. worry not, just toss in into a tupperware, freeze it and when you feel like a tuna sandwich, just pull it out let it thaw and spread it.
