Last night, dinner at Brick Lane Curry House, where I first ate with someone on this board  :D.  It has become one of my favorite Indian restaurants. 

The restaurant is known for its Phaal, "an excruciatingly hot curry, more pain and sweat than flavor," which I have not yet tried.  Don't look for any reports soon.  ;D

My first attempt at fixing this one. My Salzburger girlfriend made the best Reisfleisch ever; she credited her convection oven for the success. I don't have one. Are they even available here in this country?

these in a pita with salad.

Although falafel is traditionally made out of chickpeas there is an other version that is made from lima beans which I actually prefer, but they are hard to come by  ::)

 Not if you make them yourself.

Bruce - I've really 'cut down' on those hot dishes - there may be pain goin' in, but the next morning the pain is even worst @ the other end!  ;D

Lima bean falafel, I'd never thought of that!

Of course they're available.  What makes you think they wouldn't be?

True. I used to love hot[spicy] food but try to avoid it these days. A little bit of heat is okay but its not worth the stress on your body to have too much.

Birthday dinner: Salmon with a caper and butter sauce, fettucini in a bechamel sauce, and a cherry cheesecake to finish — compliments of my mother. :)

Yes! Actually the food was my mother's doing. If I had cooked it would have been a bit more... balanced. It was still pretty good.

.....balanced..hehe.   Still sounds great even if it ends up putting you into a food coma.


Happy Birthday!!!!

No diary for me. I haven't taken cows milk in 20 years. I missed cheese and butter for a while though. Goat and sheep fetta is nice on occasion.  :)

Because none of the people I know have one!  And very few people I know knew what I was talking about! ;D

In the mean time I googled and found them, but at close to two thousand bucks I think I can continue cooking with my old regular oven!

Lis, that picture you posted says Serbian Reisfleisch or in in other words Djuveč and I can tell you from first hand experience that very few people around here have convection ovens and that thing still somehow manages to be prepared (and has been prepared long before those things were invented), so I'm sure that you'll do just fine with standard one.

Lis - sure enough, probably a number of brands - we have a KitchenAid electric convection oven - with a built-in microwave on top - same model as shown below (CLICK on the image for more details, if interested) - lots of options!   The combo in our re-modeled kitchen (done about 3-4 yrs ago)!  Dave  :)

Drasko, Dear Man, you saved my sanity! The picture you posted from wikipedia looks exactly like my concoction and I was disappointed because my friend Evi's dish was DRY and FLUFFY rice without any saucy liquid. You also saved me close to two thousand bucks; I'll keep my thirty years old oven!  :-*
