But they can also bend the truth as in the case of the Crockpot Curry Chicken Recipe recipe I am currently cooking for today’s “Thanksgiving” pot luck lunch at work. In the photos shown in the recipe the sauce is a brilliant red-orange, and is creamy beyond belief. In my version there is no color, other than the brownish tint provided by the garam marsala I added, and the sauce is very watery, most likely because I waited far too long to defrost the chicken breasts so they never leached out the “up to 15%” water added to them by the producer. In an effort to add some color I tossed in some saffron (the most expensive spice in the world) that I purchased this morning at Publix for $6.20(!).
Speaking of pictures, I considered bringing my camera into Colony Square last night to snap some shots of the can sculptures (think “Cookie Monster” from last week). It’s a good thing I didn’t lug in any extra weight because the exhibit has already been removed. Further evidence that I should get the shots while I can and not wait for the “best” opportunity.
Still Struggling On The German Front
I still feel as if German is currently bouncing off my head instead of soaking in. Because of Thanksgiving next week (already?!?!) there will be no class on Tuesday night. My goal is to study hard for the next two weeks in an effort to prime the pump and get back on track, to mix a few metaphors. Last night I ordered “English Grammar for German Students” so hopefully I will also now be (re)learning English as I learn German. It’s never too late, right?
Ack, I’m already too busy to think about what else I wanted to add today.
Bis Morgen! (Until Tomorrow!)
