Re: Cooking With Zack, pt 2
BWAHAHAHAHA~! Oh poor Cloud. But poor Zack too - nobody appreciates his mama's home cooking!
And I SWEAR we have some kind of mental brain tap thing going -- looking at the time you were posting this? That was pretty much exactly when I was shanghaiing my neighbors into Indian dinner! (in my old college town after we'd gone to visit the zoo and fed the birds that actually landed on your hands and chirped at you - I've never touched a real live bird before; that was awesome! anyhow, /birdsquee) And the people at the table were having pretty much exactly those reactions. One of my friends is a supertaster, which means ketchup is nearly too spicy for him. But we made sure to order lots of naan and tandoori and mild stuff, and got him a lassi to drink, and he actually got through it and said it was the best Indian food he'd ever had. Yay!
(...Heh. Now I want to get into the leftovers, but we're saving 'em for Wednesday gaming-night.)
And yeah, I figure Zack should definitely have warned Cloud about what was the less-spicy version -- unless it was part of his secret plot to whittle down the audience and have more for himself? XD After all, when you've got that many teenagers all around the same collection of food and you want to get any of it, you have to think of some kind of sneaky strategy? ...or something? XD
BTW, o Mistress of the Overthinkers Club, do tari and tiki correspond to anything out here? (my Indian-based guesses would be pumpkin vindaloo, saag paneer for the spinach, and chicken korma or makhani? But if it corresponds more to Malaysian island-based food, I wouldn't even know where to start guessing...)
