best of my shopping trip

i just walked 4 km from the resort to king's road.  it was dirt, there
were cows, very hot, beautiful views.  took some pics. fun.

then i stood on the kings road for 5 minutes.  that part was worse
than the walk.  then a bus from the resort (called the feejee
experience, they have these in NZ as well, basically a backpackers
bus, goes all around the island calling at resorts, all inclusive,
really retarded and for lazy people) picked me up.  that was nice of
them.  i sat across from this older australian lady who was amazed i'd
walked the dirt road, more amazed that i just figured that a bus would
show up on the king's road.  then the bus took me to this town where
i'll grocery shop (i kind of want to cook, i guess i already said
that).  and of course it all worked out, and in under an hour and half
i bet.

jergins, Thursday, 26 November 2009 05:55 (eleven years ago) link

when does the mango go in?

jergins, Thursday, 26 November 2009 05:55 (eleven years ago) link

(fry masala in butter to start, then add onions. stir around until onions are all limp. cut chicken into pieces, dry off on paper towels if possible, put in to fry w/ spice+onions. when chicken is starting to look done - depends on size of pieces, maybe 15 min - add mango pieces and simmer for awhile longer.)

if things look iffy, or sort of burny, after you put the chicken pieces in, add a bit of water.

jaq, Thursday, 26 November 2009 05:59 (eleven years ago) link

jergins, Thursday, 26 November 2009 08:45 (eleven years ago) link

turned out pretty decent. the mangos were waaaay underripe
which gave it a nice zing

only one burner. chicken was om the bone which i didnt realize. masala powder pretty grainy. worked tho. thx jaq

jergins, Thursday, 26 November 2009 08:51 (eleven years ago) link

oh man i ate so many mangos this summer it was great

lxy, Thursday, 26 November 2009 16:37 (eleven years ago) link

lxy, Thursday, 26 November 2009 16:40 (eleven years ago) link

i vote all

max max max max, Thursday, 26 November 2009 16:42 (eleven years ago) link

(full disclosure: i wavered between rum and butter before choosing. and i somehow missed coffee on the list or i woul've had a 3-way waffle.)

lxy, Thursday, 26 November 2009 16:42 (eleven years ago) link

which, by the way, is my breakfast suggestion for any morning readers: 3-way waffles.

lxy, Thursday, 26 November 2009 16:44 (eleven years ago) link

small shells are a great type of pasta

spite n ease (harbl), Thursday, 26 November 2009 16:48 (eleven years ago) link

tehresa, Friday, 27 November 2009 04:36 (eleven years ago) link

coffee is my guess.

estela, Friday, 27 November 2009 04:50 (eleven years ago) link

i hope so because i had to vote for butter but i want coffee to get its due.

estela, Friday, 27 November 2009 04:51 (eleven years ago) link

KOFFINA

jergins, Friday, 27 November 2009 22:07 (eleven years ago) link

i am impressed bc i thought nestle had spread nescafe all over the world. glad to see there are still some nestfree places.

tehresa, Saturday, 28 November 2009 01:45 (eleven years ago) link

ha that was the other choice (i purposely avoided)
nascafe is insidious

jergins, Saturday, 28 November 2009 02:30 (eleven years ago) link

i have never had instant coffee and i have only observed euros and africans drink it

spite n ease (harbl), Saturday, 28 November 2009 02:32 (eleven years ago) link

oceania ppl drink it and so do i here but it's pretty terrible

jergins, Saturday, 28 November 2009 02:34 (eleven years ago) link

south americans also drink it.
and coffee syrup/extract mixed with hot water. it is yuk.

tehresa, Saturday, 28 November 2009 02:35 (eleven years ago) link

do antarcticans drink it?

spite n ease (harbl), Saturday, 28 November 2009 02:36 (eleven years ago) link

no! they'd get freeze dried supersealed bags sent down on a ship once a year. already ground. kinda stale. still better than instant

jergins, Saturday, 28 November 2009 02:43 (eleven years ago) link

euros love instant cafe which is so weird to me because many of them are also coffee snobs!!!

max max max max, Saturday, 28 November 2009 14:48 (eleven years ago) link
