this past week was my birthday, and a biochem exam, and generally too much studying.
i've been cooking when i can, usually late night experiments.... it's therapeutic :)
but the fridge has been rather bare, i've been missing having many great ingredients at hand. it's made for an interesting menu as of late.
for example, i messed around with making puff pastry dough the other night... my vision was to stuff triangles with spiced ground turkey, onion and potatoes (indian-style spices) for a crispy puff pastry take on a samosa. woowwww what failure it was! starting off i didn't understand how temperamental puff pastry can be, especially when done carelessly and in a hurry (like how i did it). my pockets turned out pale, flat, dense, and extremely greasy.
