The Quickest Indian . . . Meal

Hey, why not stop being a bum and follow our blog? You'll get in on the ground floor of this action and it'll be an amazing investment in your financial future! The 20th follower gets praise rained upon them in the next blog update!

Tonight was one of those nights where you (read: I) only have about twenty minutes to make dinner. It was the perfect night to quickly chop up a blend of all the veggies from the farm share, toss them in a pan, and make a quick vegetable Tikka Masala. For veggies I used (from the farm) potato, kohlrabi, turnips, and kale. From elsewhere I used red onion, celery, and Romanesco that we had lying around.

I also rubbed some lamb top round steaks with cardamom, oriander, clove, garlic, chive, black pepper, salt, brown sugar, paprika, and chipotle. In lieu of rice we just had some naan bread.

Based on a recommendation from a wine expert I consulted I went with this Seven Daughters white wine to accompany the meal.

Going on this recommendation I have started to accept that fact that spending more than $7.99 on a bottle of wine tends to generate an infinitely more pleasing dinner experience. It's almost as if the price were in some way tied in to the overall quality of the wine!

Curious. I think this requires additional scrutiny and research.

More on this later.
