Still missing Penny a lot, at random times.

Went to the little gym here at the apartments and did a short workout because my blood sugars were way high last night. Exercise should fix this. Besides, I promised Penny I would do that and haven't, so far.

Got a call from K-Force putting me up for a spot at Mentor Graphics, and another from a different person there about a different spot. Got a call from Oxford Group about a spot at Tektronix, and a call-back today asking for some details. I may get an interview tomorrow. That would be nice.

Gradually using up the stuff in the freezer. What do I do with goat chops?

well with lamb, you can marinate them in wine for a while, ..over night or something,season them up a bit with some salt and pepper, then just broil or roast them. Serve with some vegetables or salad. (pretty much what Outback does...they use other marinades though)..or you can skip the marinate, but goat might be a bit tough to not break it down a bit first.

Goat is used a lot in Indian cuisine in place of lamb, so it would respond nicely to curry or other Indian seasonings.

OOOOOH, curry, that's an idea. I may still marinate them in sherry and/or lime juice first. They've been in the freezer for a while.

"Lemon Curry?"

Well, lime and chocolate, as it worked out.

Monty python reference.

If you like Indian food, there's a place in town called Sambol's that serves Indian and Sri Lanka dishes. If you are ever in the area again it's a good place to grab a lunch. Or heck if the new job pans out maybe we can pay you a visit sometime.

Hm. Given the freezerburn, the goat is brining for a while.

Can you have it brine too long? :) good luck with it!

Well, it turned out OK. Not especially tender even though I simmered it for an hour, but not as tough as it could've been.

I used some Apple Curry bricks that I've been intending to use for ages, and made some rice to go under it (probably bad for my blood sugar but I was very hungry) and added two blocks of unsweetened Baker's Chocolate at the same time I added the curry bricks.

It is very good. Sort of reminiscent of a mole' sauce but not quite so acid-inducing spicy.
