Cooking Adventures II: Curry Chicken and Basmati Rice

Second Food Entry of the Day, but that’s aight. This came out better than I thought it would. The rice especially, cause I added in coconut milk, basil and a cinnamon stick. It was amazing. The chicken could’ve been better, but it’s hard to do chicken justice when you haven’t got an oven.

I really wish I could bake. I’m considering a Pancake and Booze party on an upcoming Thursday or Friday. Stay tuned. This is an idea that will probably come back to Amherst as well.

On a completely different note, the longer I stay here the more junkies I see, especially by the Henrikkade where I have class. I saw some guy with a purple beard today. Sometimes, Amsterdam can be such a problem.

Y’all really wanna know about some lekker shit?

Dutch Word of the Day
liever: prefer
Ik heb liever Ferrero.
I prefer Ferrero.

And everything Ferrero has ever touched. These are the same guys who made Nutella. (Yeah, there was a Nutella entry not long ago. I’m not addicted. I can stop whenever I want.)

What I didn’t know at the time was that they made a candy bar, Kinder Bueno, and it’s smaller version, Kinder Maxi. It’s so addictive. If you like Nutella, you’ll hook Bueno to your veins. I haven’t seen this anywhere else, but I plan on hunting them down back in the states. Maybe they’ll be in Zabars or something. They’re only 0.35 for maxi and 0.68 for beuno here. They’ll probably be muy caro at home.

I don’t think I’ll ever eat Hershey’s again.

PS I know there have been a lot of food entries lately. I’m not trying to pull some Nigella Lawson crap, I’ve just been eating a lot. Deal with it.
