I hope you all had a fabulous weekend!
On Saturday David played his show in Columbus with his band "The Stars Collapse" and it was awesome to see him play. I have never been to one of his concerts before so this was a premiere and I was more than excited. They played at the Volatility Festival in Ohio.
I took a couple of pictures but I am really sorry about the quality. I wasn't able to charge my camera because I just didn't find the charger. Well, that's me. So I had to take the pictures with my iPhone. Not the best quality ever.
That's the band. David is the great bass player on the left. I can't wait to see them play again in August!
I think I took 50 pictures during the concert and David never looked into the camera. He always looked at his bass or the ground.
He is such a great musician and I am so proud of him!
Schatz, you're my one and only rock star!
So yesterday I wanted to cook an Indian curry, I love the Indian cuisine so much and I wanted to see if David likes it too.
I already had lots of vegetables but I needed to go to the store to get some coconut milk and curry pasta. I thought this wouldn't be a big problem and I knew that the store has coconut milk because I bought it there before. So I looked for the curry paste....everywhere....first I looked in the aisle with the foreign specialties. Nothing. I looked at the aisle where they have ketchup, mustard etc. Nothing. I looked at every other aisle. Still no curry paste. Then I had the idea to just ask somebody. The customer service in America is excellent so I was sure that this person could help me.
I had this dialog with the person who works at the store:
Me: Excuse me, I am searching for curry paste. Can you tell me where I could find it?
Person: I don't even know what that is.
Me: It is Indian and it is a paste made of spices, you can get red or green curry paste. It is usually in a little glass container.
Person: I have no idea.
Me: (Speechless). Well, thanks for your help.
What a nice person. I at least expected her to come with me and look around. But nothing happened. What a great experience.
I ended up going to another store. I found it there and I was able to cook my Indian curry.
Sorry the quality of this picture is really terrible.
Here is what you need:
2 cups of brown rice. I don't exactly know how many grams that it but I say maybe 300g.
1 green pepper
250 g mushrooms
200 g chick peas
1 can of coconut milk
5 teaspoons curry paste
other spices (I used more curry, garlic, pepper and salt)
Boil the rice. In the meantime cut the pepper and the mushrooms and roast them in a pan. Add the chick peas and use lots of spices (I love spices and everything I cook is very spicy). Add the rice and then the coconut milk. Let it cook for a couple of minutes and then add the curry paste. And then more spices.
Easy recipe but also very delicious.
I hope you are all having a wonderful week!
