We ended up having a solid meal at Ichiban, an excellent Japanese restaurant located obscurely in the west end of the city. A variety of rolls (with mostly chop chop! yes!), good company and hot tea led to a solid lunch. This was followed by even more conversation over coffee at the nearby Second Cup, where I reconciled my love for their brews (after a lengthy dry spell) and thus ending with me being a happy camper.
I ended up going home and cooking curry chicken, which turned out to be quite damn good, although still fatty (even though I did cut the cream/butter content in half to respectively half a cup/one tablespoon). I gave myself a pat on the back, especially with how the sauce spooned wonderfully over the freshly steamed rice. I could totally get used to this, save for the fact that it took my nearly two hours to prep and make, leading to serious speculation that I could cook like this in the upcoming term.
I also managed to find a grossly rotted out green pepper, which had been partially consumed by a caterpillar of some sort (I can’t really confirm this is a caterpillar without counting the number of prolegs, as opposed to a hymenopteran larvae, but as far as I know, generally it is lepidopteran pests that consume vegetables). Anyways super gross. I almost lost my appetite. I love bugs, but like not at all in my food. Damn you mother nature. Oh and I almost forgot to give my props to Avatar. OMFG. There’s enough reviews and all on the internet for you to peruse, so I think my comments will suffice.
edit: some reading depicts it as maybe a corn earworm or an armyworm, both lepidopterans, as thought.
