Day 26
Ray pleases me
erika_sanely
I have been very busy today, cooking wise. So far I have

* made a chicken curry,

* made a lamb rogan josh

* stewed some apples

* whipped up a very easy bread-and-butter-pudding,

and

* made mayonnaise from scratch.

All I have to do now to portion up the rogan josh and freeze it and I am sorted for ages when it comes to coming home from work and not feeling up to cooking and having to get the washing up done the same night.

Add to that another trip to supermarket where I only bought items that were on my shopping list and I feel I've earned at least 6 ticks in the "Almost a grownup" column.

I have learnt (learned? I can never work out which one to use. If there's a trick to remembering please let me know) that I need to have Adele on the iPod and a $3 plastic tiara on my head give the motivation to kick booty on weekends and get heaps of house work and kitchen stuff done.

Hmmm, does a $3 plastic tiara negate the 6 ticks I just gave myself on the "almost a grown-up list"? I may need to re-think my weekend strategy in that case.

How did you make the mayo?
Found a recipe at This website (Recipe below though if you couldn't be arsed going to the website.

1 Combine one egg or two tablespoons of egg substitute, two teaspoons lemon juice, one teaspoon Dijon mustard, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1/8 ground black pepper, and 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil or vegetable oil. Blend together about ten minutes.

2 Once all the ingredients are blended and are smooth, add 3/8 cup more of olive or vegetable oil until the mayonnaise is thickened. Taste and add salt to your liking. Makes one cup of mayonnaise. Refrigerate thirty minutes before serving to allow ingredients to blend.

It looks okay - I"ll know more tomorrow when I have my sandwich for lunch.

Also, I think the plastic tiara idea is awesome. I'll be sure to have a couple handy when you visit. *vbg*

Oh man, having a tiara is brilliant. I had some friends over to watch the Royal Wedding, which we did with as much class as you can wearing your pyjamas and a tiara from a $2 shop. One weekend my hair was annoying me and I didn't have a headband, so I grabbed the tiara. Seriously I cannot belive how much wearing it motivates me to do stuff around the house. I just know though that one day I shall be caught by someone and I'll never live it down.
