My sister was in a car accident- one of those highway car hits car hits car hits car etc. etc. She was somewhere in the middle and she IS OKAY- her car is totaled. She's banged up, I think her wrist is sprained (she doesn't want to see a doctor and I want someone to MAKE her). but she is okay and stressing about how much it's going to cost to get a new car.
Hopefully this is a sign the tide is changing? Stay safe. In good news, we had a potluck, I made food for about 18 people. I made Moghlai Parathas*
(I'd only made like 2/3 before this in December) and Chicken Pakodas**
(first time, almost) and people praised them and I didn't poison anyone. So, yay?
I just totally lost it with my best friend in the entire world because she decided to go vegetarian! This full moon is a right werewolf moon.
That being said, I know that she loves red meat, and that she's only doing this for her girlfriend. Which is totally her right and a nice move, and yes, I went pescatarian last year for a month, and why the fuck am I feeling so irrational about this?
I read this first as you losing your best friend because of her becoming a vegetarian. And I understood? I'm still annoyed by one of my best friend's diets - which he went on while studying at Falmouth! Gah. I love him. But he's so annoying. (And his wife is vegetarian too. Gah. We don't know what to feed them when they come over, even though Bong veg food rocks.)Either way, is okay. Just tell her to ensure that she has a lot of lentils (pulses), soya beans and garbanzo (?) beans in her diet to keep her protein intake up and stay healthy. And milk. When I was vegetarian for a year, my blood pressure dropped, and there's no medicine for that. (Of course, I took that as an excuse to eat as much red meat as I want now :oD - and I have never checked my pressure since). /latest chapter of r i
making it all about herself.
* I left off the cumin powder and the chaat masala - it's tasty enough without. And used ketchup instead of Aloo curry.
**No cumin, used just vinegar, you don't need curd & lemon juice & vinegar. Batter was liquid mixture of egg & maida (all purpose flour). Also I marinated overnight. ETA: Oh and no onions. Because - why?
Also ETA: No guarantee on the quality of the recipes on the websites I linked to. Meant to give you a high level view.
