I go to the vegetable market to buy vegetables, and get really excited about ALL THE VEGETABLES! I also take a photo of them when I get home. And post it on Facebook.
I spend all evening cooking ONE meal.
And am super-excited and self-congratulatory about it.
I am even more proud of the fact that I am making MULTIPLE dishes which involve multiple steps (not just dal or beans that consists of my meal for the next three days).
As I cook, I wish I had a food photographer chronicling every stage of the cooking experience. Or at least a phone camera that works. Still, I take grainy photos of the food I cook with my itouch. AND post them on my blog, unapologetic of their terrible quality.
Cauliflower dum masala- cauliflower in a fried onion and tomato paste, with coriander and lime
Thecha/ Kharda: Fried and ground green chillies, garlic, salt and coriander. (OH.MY.GOSH. SO YUMMY!)
Chapatis and parathas (flatbread made from whole wheat flour, normal part of every meal an Indian eats)
I await the shock and amazement and delight that my room mate is sure to express when she find there is REAL FOOD IN THE HOUSE.
The first thing I do after cooking and eating my meal is write an entire blog post about it.
Can you even imagine a REAL housewife doing this every time she cooked a meal?
P.S. Anxious Sue would never have been able to spend a relaxing evening cooking without freaking out about all the many things she could have/should have been doing instead.
