Saturday will be the day we’re devoting to making Indian Food. Well, chicken tikka masala. Whether or not chicken tikka masala is actually Indian Food is up for debate.
One of the things that I will be in charge of is the naan. On our test evening, I made both garlic butter naan and cheesy naan and tested it out by making naan with four different amounts:
1. A little
3. A Lot
4. Holy Cow/Pizza
We came to a consensus that the best naans were “some cheese” and “Holy Cow garlic butter”. Then somebody said “Why not make cheesy garlic butter naan?” and everybody’s eyes got really big.
So we’re making cheesy garlic butter naan to have with the chicken tikka masala. I suppose that if someone wants just cheesy or just garlic buttery or, heck, even “just plain old naan”, we’ll make that available too.
I kind of would like to make naan for real someday… but it would take me hours to prepare/make enough naan for two people (assuming I’m one of them) if I didn’t have a kiln (let alone enough for a dozen folks of which I am one). Perhaps next year.
And that’s pretty much all day Saturday. Cooking, gaming, and otherwise recovering from a week in which we got told that, hey, thanks for all of the hump-busting you’ve been doing over the last month… overtime is now officially off of the table. And so, now, I’m looking forward to a week in which I’m “only” going to work 40 hours. (Oceans of time!) But that’s me getting ahead of myself. In the short term, I’m just looking forward to cooking/gaming on Saturday and using Sunday to play catch-up on all of the stuff I didn’t do on Saturday (and knowing that, hey, I’ll have evenings again in the following week).
So… what’s on your docket?
