Actually, the problem is that the tomato taste overpowered everything else in it, including all the spices


ah.  must have been some strong tomatoes

;)

still, I know what you mean; not all curries work well with tomatoes.  the tang just doesn't balance well.  I don't like them in a green curry.  I usually like a bit of tomato in a red curry, though.

I used to chew Skoal and smoke Camels, but for the past three days I'm just relying on the Skoal. It's much, much healthier, although I prefer the quick blast of nicotine from the cigarette.

You know I grew up redneck, don'tcha?

I'm glad Skoal makes pouches now. Those damn Bandits were too small. Needed like three or four of those to get going.

In case you didn't know I'm somewhat redneck and my relatives are from Kentucky, here's a good example: in my extended family, chewing tobacco is seen as something you do as a kid, which you leave behind in your mid-teens when you switch to smoking.

I think the first time I was offered chewing tobacco, I was about nine. We were visiting relatives in Owensville, Ky.

By the way, it's actually a treat to have a redneck heritage and work in technical fields. You should see the looks on people's faces when you explain, in a thick southern accent and with your bottom lip jutting out, that the gas won't cool down upon expanding because this here's a free expansion and those are irreversible but adiabatic, so while the entropy increases, the integral of F dV from V1 to V2 is zero, so the temperature can't change so long as it's just hydrogen and the van der Waals terms don't matter much.

My immediate family is from North Florida. My extended family is from Kentucky. Why they thought middle-of-nowhere North Florida would be an improvement, I'll never know. Probably, they just wanted to move south to get away from those Kentucky winters, and didn't want to move to south Florida because they'd heard it was overrun by some type of Mexicans from Cuba.

(not kidding, that's how they think)

yeah, it does give people oral cancer. But at like a tenth the rate at which cigarettes give people lung cancer, which itself is not all that high. There's something about lung tissue, which makes it much more susceptible to cancer.

The risks aren't zero, but I believe in doing a clear-headed risk assessment. We decide the risk of dying on the roads is worth driving, and I've decided that for me the risk of oral cancer is worth the good feeling of chewing tobacco.

The last time I was in Kentucky was around 2004. My maternal grandma had died. She was my favorite person in the world. A little 98-lb redheaded spitfire who had that kind of moxie you see in sharp-tongued newspaper women in black-and-white movies. She ran a few businesses in the rural south in the 50's and 60's where menfolk would speak patronizingly to her until they realized she'd just negotiated away all their money. Went to Kentucky for the funeral and sat through about 15 minutes of a sermon from some fundy asshole who had no idea who she was and was just using the opportunity to threaten us all with hellfire. Had to very publicly walk out of the service because it was either that or just start beating him.

This has nothing to do with the thread, but hopefully people will appreciate it as a local color type story.

I've never actually tried Sri Lankan cuisine.

I'll tell you what is good though, Nepalese.
It's simply the greatest food I've ever had. Hot and spicy, yet full of flavour, and with milder dishes to help tone the really hot ones down.

My bolding

Yes Nepalese food is damned good.
I have worked with the Gurkhas on several occaisions and it was always a treat to get an invite to their parties. Good food and company (not to mention plenty of ale {Oops! Just mentioned it.}).

They had a particularly nice potato dish. Cool (ish) as you chewed and swallowed it, then seemed to get hotter afterwards.

Anybody have any suggestions for very cheap, yet edible, meals?  


Rice and ginger? Boil some rice with a pinch of turmeric to give it a lovely yellow colour.
Then dry the rice and fry it with gratings of fresh root ginger.
Very tasty. Very cheap. You could always add the odd random ingredient to experiment for variety.

Dunno about having a dinner consisting of nothing but rice.

I mean, it'd seem a bit, uh, incomplete without SOME attempt at vegetables or protein. Seems like kind of a kwashiorkor diet.

Sorry. I've always wanted to use the word 'kwashiorkor'.

I hope I kin git away with this, seein's how my "roots" trace back to Kentucky, Tennessee, and Joe-Jah.

But isn't "redneck extended family" an oxymoron?

There's some kind of sour taste in Texas Pete that I just don't like.

What are the listed ingredients?

Production

The cayenne peppers used in Texas Pete hot sauce are aged for two years to soften their skins, and the company claims this also enhances concentration of capsaicin. The peppers are then combined with vinegar, salt, xanthan gum, and sodium benzoate. One of the controversies surrounding the sauce is the inclusion of xanthan gum, a thickener that allows for less overall pepper pulp in the recipe to achieve the desired texture, which some hot sauce fans find distasteful.

I know this is heretical, but I've long thought tabasco was too vinegary.

Dinner: I wanted sth. hot and spicy but it's too busy here for me to be doing a bunch of kitchen work, so I'm making a (very) lazy man's curry with  this and this. I'd like to try this, but I haven't been able to find it yet.

I may retry that phaal minus tomatoes this coming week.

And Steve can get back to us about that habanero pot pie he was planning.

No habanero pot pie. Made some chicken breasts tonight which I soaked in Pete's for about 2 hrs. Ended up throwing them all away because of that sour taste. I'm a little uncertain, maybe it wasn't the vinegar, after all, I like the vinegar style barbeque, maybe not as much as the tomato barbeque, but still, it's very vinegary and I don't know why I wouldn't like that...who knows. But I'm going back to Jerk chicken. No more of that sourness on the back edges of the tongue.

On the plus side, I'd blended Habaneros, garlic, and a peppercorn medley into the texas pete, so I had some scalp sweat going. All was not lost.

(as a side note, my roommate's boyfriend just moved in. Here on day 1 I took special note to say, "Shawn, I notice you moved in some Cholula. If you see this thick stuff in the big Texas Pete bottle, be forewarned. This is not Texas Pete. Do not use it as liberally as Texas Pete. This is Crazy Steve. It's a special blend. This is dangerous, and you need to be careful when using it. But I highly recommend it. Just be careful. Don't get it on your hands. Or your lips."

That's basically what fucked up the phaal I made last week -- too many tomatoes turned it sour. Also I put in two onions like the recipe said, but that was too many. So next time, very few maters and one SMALL onion.

I've never OD'd on garlic, but I have OD'd on onions.
