Share Your World – 2014 Week 26

Is your refrigerator, organized or a mess inside? I’d say it is pretty organised. I always have all my vegies in the crisper section at the bottom and eggs in the little holes in the fridge door. The other shelves don’t have particular roles, apart from the wine-rack type thing for bottles, but I do tend to group similar items together such as jams, sauces and condiments on various shelves.

If you could be famous for one thing, what would it be? My delicious dahl, which I don’t think I have any photos of but here is the incredibly easy one-pot recipe for you:

  1. Fry up some diced onions, with optional chilli flakes
  2. Optional: add bacon and/or chicken pieces to the pot, cook until they brown up
  3. Add a teaspoon each of minced garlic and ginger
  4. Add about 100g per person of red lentils, make sure they have been rinsed well first
  5. Add twice as much water and wait until it boils
  6. Add 1/2 tin chopped tomatoes per person (ish) and any seasonings you wish, we use oregano, ground cumin seeds & ground coriander seeds along with salt & pepper to taste
  7. Let it simmer for about half an hour or until the lentils lose are properly cooked
  8. Note that you can add more water depending on your preferences and if it is cooking too quickly. I like it to end up really thick so I never add more water

What one thing have you not done that you really want to do? See the Chicago Bean in person.

Where do you eat breakfast? Right here in front of my computer.

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? I’m grateful for being able to spend time with my family. Next week I’m looking forward to being a guest at the wedding of two of our friends and having a mini-getaway with my other half as the wedding is out of town.
