Exquisite Veal Curry

I'm tired. I have grading to do, but I hate it so much. I think I may try to wake up early and take care of a lot of it before school tomorrow morning. We'll see.

On Halloween I had the privilege of going out on a second date with the woman I went out with while sick. We took the train downtown and went to a haunted house. I had a great time! I also can't believe how attracted I am to her. She's a perfect combination of nice, fun, smart, classy, and beautiful. I can say all this, because she has no idea that I write a blog. I'm a slow dater. I don't know how to change this about myself. We've hugged once at the end of both of our dates after I walked her to her car, but I've had steamier hugs with my guy friends, so who knows. I worry that I take things too slowly, but I when I'm really into a woman I get nervous and cautious and try to be gentlemanly. She seemed to have a good time and I think we'll go out again. Who knew you could find a woman like this on the internet.

But back to the food: I've been on a crazy roll recently. I honestly haven't made a bad dish in two weeks. This may be a record. I bought some Ground Veal that was on sale yesterday since the expiration date was only a day away. I didn't know what to do with it, but I threw it into a Curry with Avocado that needed to be used, a Butternut Squash that had to be used, and a lot of other ingredients. It is 100% awesome. I'd peddle this to the President if he was in town and in need of sustenance. You can make a meal like this, too, if you just follow this complex recipe:

Curried Veal and Squash Medley

1 Butternut Squash
4 tbsp Ghee
4 Cloves Garlic diced
0.75 in^2 Ginger diced
0.6 tbsp Cumin
0.6 tbsp Coriander
0.5 tbsp Garam Masala
1 tsp Cayenne
0.75 tsp Cinnamon
1 Onion diced
1 lb. Ground Veal
6 oz. can of Tomato Paste
Juice of 1 Lime
1 Avocado
1 Red Bell Pepper largely chunked
Salt and Pepper

Cut the Squash and roast in the oven at 375 until it's soft. While this is happening, melt the Ghee in your wok. Fry the Garlic and Ginger. After a few minutes add the Spices. Next add the Onion and fry. When the Onion is soft, add the Ground Veal. Cook while continuously stirring to break the Veal into small chunks. Then add the Tomato Paste and Lime Juice. When fully cooked scrape in the Avocado and mash up. I only added this because it was going bad, but it certainly didn't hurt the meal. What a meal! Turn off the heat and add the Red Bell Pepper and Salt and Pepper to taste. Take out the Squash and serve both the Squash and the Ground Veal mixture over Basmati Rice. Feel free to mix them up and enjoy the wonders of this most excellent feast! Serve this to guests... they'll be impressed!
