Terry made potato goat cheese galettes (e:60460), and I made a double batch of chana masala. It almost overflowed the pans.
Together we cut up 6 onions, 8 cloves of garlic, four tomatoes, two potatoes and something like ~1800g of chickpeas.
Now I barely have to cook this week. I feel like a mom-blogger with all this meal prep.

It was cramped inside but very nice.
What is Luiza's pierogi club? I'd want in.
Later at night we went to the Underground with Jeremy for the next she lives event. It was crazy packed. I've never waited so long at a bar before.
Still it was fun to see everyone there. (e:mike) and (e:libertad) you should have made it out.
At the end I got chased out by the butch security guard at the door for taking my beer with me, but luckily my legs are longer ;)

Burmese food at Lin Restaurant
They had the Thai iced coffee which is amazing.
They also had a tea leaf salad. I usually eat my tea leaves anyway but this was pretty interesting.
Terry and I split a curry and a fried rice. We also got a million different appitizers, including spring rolls and samosas. They had extremely tiny and super spicy peppers to top everything. Yum.
Next door they had a small grocery store with a bunch of different Indian/Japanese/Chinese foods.
One of the shelves contained nothing but this nut. Apparently it's speed-y plant that gives you oral cancer. Anyone want to try?
And some banana blossom. How do you eat these?

Strange allure/Lebanese platter
Afterwards (e:paul) and I napped while we all waited for (e:uchina) to come in for the strange allure rave. It was in this warehouse on Winslow street, by East Ferry and Filmore.
I'm usually not excited for house music but the atmosphere and mood was pretty good Should have listened to you (e:paul) ;). The light show was crazy with flashing LEDs - you never knew where (e:uchina) was until you were touching her head.
We didn't get home sleep until 5:30 despite the parade the next day.

We got on at PriceRite for $1.99 a pound. It has a very mild creamy taste and the coolest looking seeds on the inside. From the look of it I really thought it would have a stronger taste.
Apparently it's from Mexico and related to the prickly pear cactus. Now I know what Basra's favorite fruits taste like.

This recipie was also pretty easy but we had to make a few substiutions. Price Rite didn't have yellow lentil nor green chili pepper, so I used red lentil and a green pepper. No cilantro either for (e:paul).
The lentils were cooked with a teaspoon of tumeric and salt, almost into a soup. They became very foamy, I'm not sure if I did something wrong. Consistency was very good though.
The topping is cumin seeds, with chili powder, onion, pepper, garlic and tomato simmered together in a buttered pan. (She used ghee but I thought it'd be easier to use butter)
I wasn't as crazy about this one as the chana masala but it may have been the tumeric is overpowering. I thought it could use a hotter pepper and cilantro for sure, and more topping compared to the amount of lentils.
The rest of the night was spent reading more about domain driven design and event sourcing PHP frameworks. I really want to write about these because I really don't understand them.

At the Food Terminals
Do you know they sell eggs there? Allegedly grass fed free range. There's even the used up corpse of the chicken who pooped them out.
The first store we went into was a weird dent and scratch reseller. They sold trim, toilets, sinks, and a thousand of the same model printers that had an Amazon label on it. Is this where your Amazon returns end up?
The second one was a restaurant food supply place. My mom used to buy bulk bags of mozzarella (that's where so many pizzas originate (e:uchina)). If you ever want five pound of pepper flakes, or mayonaisse by the gallon, be sure to stop here.
We tried Hydraulic Hearth again for brunch on the way back. I thought Paul ordered a coffee but it turned out to be a double shot, oops.
