I purchased tomatillos for the first time and I am looking forward to dicing and then gently cooking them on the stove. So they don’t get lonely, I thought I would give an onion and some garlic cloves the same trameatment and toss them into the pan to keep my little green friends company. I am debating making homemade tortillas to serve with the salsa and maybe something a little hearty too but any accompaniments are still in the planning phase. I love to experiment with new ingredients and flavors don’t you, Dear Readers?
Speaking of new flavors, my husband, Russell, and I went into our first Indian market and it was both exciting and fascinating! One of the women who worked there looked at us with a hint of pity and a touch of ‘how sweet, you’re lost’ in her eyes but she was mistaken, I was intrigued. (I did not know of the market and we stumbled upon it.) The piles of different types of rice, rows of spices and shelves of treats made me want to go home, dig out my curry cookbook (our friends from England gave me) and start reading, learning and then experimenting!
