I followed a recipe for some Indian food a week ago and I gotta say, while it tasted pretty good, it smelled awful while it was cooking. It was a bitch trying to find garam masala and I didn't want to buy a massive amount of spices to mix my own.

I know it's considered "girly" but seriously Pinterest is the shit for organizing and finding recipes. I may at least 2-3 new recipes per week because of that site and then I can actually find them again, which is a miracle. it also allows me to save most of the recipes I find in magazines and then throw the damn magazine away after reading it. So much less clutter.

Garam masala = curry powder.

In my little slice of the world, even curry powder is hard to come by. We have all the adobo and teriyaki one could ever need though ...

Where is your slice of the world? I'm pretty sure it's available in all of the major grocery store chains.

Oh, I did track one down. It just wasn't stocked on the main shelves for whatever reason. There was a helpful dude who found a dusty jar of it in the back. I didn't check every store we had in town so I may have had better luck elsewhere but my particular Safeway seems to cater mostly to the Spanish and Asian(minus India of course) cultures as far as food items go. I check out stores for spices fairly regularly just because I like to and I don't recall ever seeing curry powder or garam masala on the shelves. I live in Longview, WA. Not exactly culturally diverse down here :P Unless you want a taco or some general tso's chicken.

Safeway is your problem. Safeway is a good enough store, but it caters more to local preferences. I shop for spices at Kroger chain stores (Fred Meyer's in WA) and, weirdly, Walmart/Sam's Club. If I need specialty spices or (dry) ingredients, I have a pretty helpful purchaser at a World Market about 2 hours away that orders them for me. She loves my cooking.

I think that just convinced me to start planning one. Lets get Fridmarr, BlDavis, Gracerath, Aergis, Thalia, McDuffie, Myself, Skye?I think?, and any other WA/OR/ID Mtadin out here! We could have an awesome end-of-summer bar-b-que or something late September.

If I had any hopes of making it, I would, even though I don't live in the PNW. :)

Yes, but I'm limited which days I can take due to exercises and other people's leave dates.

That and I'd much rather use that to visit Lev (and some other Aussie friends.) The PNW will be much easier to reach from the US.

I finally tracked down curry powder (which is a slightly different blend than the garam masala I picked up) and I'll have to figure out something to use that with. I think I could be lazy and mix some into yogurt as a marinade for chicken and it would be pretty tasty grilled.

My favorite meal lately has been steak and mushrooms. I found some thin cut petite sirloin steaks that I salt liberally and then I put in a hot pan for about 1 min per side and give them a nice sear. Then I add a chunk of butter to the pan with some mushrooms and salt. The water in the mushrooms deglazes the bottom and picks up all the delicious meat flavors. I add a splash of balsamic vinegar and some garlic powder (I'd use fresh but I'm lazy atm) and man, it comes out really freaking good. Add any juices that comes from the steak while they are resting as you cook the mushrooms too. So quick and easy.

Don't you think it'd be wise to save up money to go visit your fiance first... considering you haven't seen her in what? Two years?
