Clearly this is going to be a sporadic blog, not a regular one. What with Heather home for the holidays, getting ready to teach a new class (computer science ethics) this spring, and gearing up for paper assignments for the major conference I'm cochairing (AAAI-13), I just totally forgot about this.
To make up for it, this post will be a two-fer.
Last night we had dinner at Honey Pig -- awesome and authentic Korean on Rt. 40 in Ellicott City, across from the Enchanted Forest Shopping Center. Always crowded (but open 24 hours!), always delicious. Not a huge variety, but all the basics, grilled right at your table.
Tonight it's a busy workday weeknight, so I went with the fallback staple -- Golden Curry. If you're not familiar, this is a curry mix that you can buy in most grocery stores (Asian section). I always use the mild curry (they also make it medium or hot), 1-1.25 pounds of stew meat, 3 stalks celery, 3-4 carrots, 3-4 potatoes, 1-2 onions, 1 green pepper. Dice everything small (about 1/2" dice) so that it will cook quickly, and follow package directions. Serve over rice. (Oops, I forgot to make the rice -- looks like we will be trying out the new precooked rice we bought at Lotte yesterday!!)
