Have been absent, as I've been busy researching info, regarding my upcoming "trip..." AROUND THE WORLD IN EIGHTY DAYS. As I'm basing my tour upon the book/movie using my recent "crash course," in hopes that I will be at least 80% accurate, this is, afterall
more for the FUN of it, than college thesis! I have scrutinized the route (to the best of my ablility, and have formulated a tentative menu of ethinic foods, common to the countries of each stop. Again, my apologies if I stray some... I am totally unfamiliar
with dishes common to India, weak at Asian (but working on it!) and have made the best guesses I can, as I've searched for recipes, most of which will come from the AR website. Now, I'm allowing the 80 days, and will prepare 11 meals, I believe is the total.
Lapses of posts between, consider travel time - remember that the story takes place in the days of steam locomotives, and sailing ships. So, the fun begins when I arrive in Paris, either Thurs or Fri of this week!
This afternoon, I made a trip to the grocery for the regular supplies, and tossed a number of items for the first few meals into the cart, short of fresh produce, figuring that I will make it to "Sprouts" before produce not on hand will be needed. Really MUST
get to the pharmacy tomorrow - I'm sure they called almost two weeks ago with the "order ready" message from Jesse. Fortunately, they know me well, and never (yet) have returned items to stock, as I will most definately get by "some day." Once again, the
painting has come to a screeching halt, sewing machie collecting dust on the dining table... ya probably know the routine.
Guess that's all for tonight... been so crazy I'm pullin' my hair out! Keep cookin!
