Re: Cooking With Zack, pt 2
*snicker* Kadaj would take one look at Cloud all but speaking in tongues (as an afterthought, curse the lack of editing of comments, I wanted to have Cloud's choked out "Sorry" to be "Enschuldigung" as he reverts out of Standard, and Kadaj definitely would have had a "WTF just came out of his mouth, what did Zack's food DO to him?!" moment) and decide that Zack Is Evil (which he suspected all along; why else would Zack keep calling him 'shrimp') and will never touch anything the man cooked.
Hee hee hee, go for it! You already made the Materia Ice thing; it seems you dropkick my ficbrain and I dropkick your cooking brain. ;)
Yeah, the boil in bag stuff is kind of like that. Most Japanese curry is that wussy curry roux. Lately, though, you can get premade 'Indian' curry, like keema, that has actual spices! I even found a grocery store that sells Thai curry, red and green, that was actually spicy, as well as some kits for making authentic curry (complete with warnings that it is REALLY spicy), which I'll try when I no longer feel like death. Hee hee, the pumpkin and chickpea one was based on one of the boil in bag curries I have in my kitchen now (and have been living off of, since my energy levels when I get home from work are around nil).
And eeeee, that sounds so cute! Two of my bosses in the US had birds, and they would bring them in all the time.
...also, yes, any bird you had would not last long with your semi-feral kitty. You see another pet, he sees a gourmet meal that you have brought for him, but cruelly put just out of his reach.
