Craving Indian Food? 5 Starter Recipes | The Kitchn - http://www.thekitchn.com/want-to...
Craving Indian Food? 5 Starter Recipes | The Kitchn
"Around this time in the winter, dinners start to become predictable. Soup is in heavy rotation as are whole-grain casseroles or baked pasta with loads of greens. Routines set in and I start to turn to what what's easy, filling and delicious. But lately I've been craving food with a warmer kick—spicy food, food that isn't always in my weekly repertoire. Truthfully, I don't cook much Indian food at home. I love it, and there's a great little spot by our house with a pretty magical (and inexpensive) lunch buffet. But I find that when I'm inspired to actually cook something, I never have the right spices and I start to feel a touch overwhelmed by the thought of it. But we had a dinner party recently and decided to tackle a number of Indian dishes that were new to us. I usually like to test out new recipes before serving them to friends, but this was an exception: I was craving Indian food and there simply wasn't enough time to fully test each one. So I went with recipes from a few... more... - John (bird whisperer) from Bookmarklet
Ooooh, yum. I can't quite seem to get the hang of lentils, but both of the red lentil recipes look really good. - Jennifer Dittrich
I've messed up quite a few lentil dishes. Red lentils can be really nice, though. - John (bird whisperer)
The key to making the lentil dishes is to keep it simple... onion, mustard seeds, cumin, turmeric and chicken bullion as a base. If you try to add all the stuff they list in most recipes you wind up overwhelming the flavor. Oh and the recipes generally way overestimate the amount of spice powders to add. - Adrian
My screw ups usually involve over/under cooking the lentils themselves :/ - Jennifer Dittrich
Jenn's problem is also my problem, though I've occasionally had flavoring issues. - John (bird whisperer)
I still struggle with OVER spicing or making it too hot. Yeah lentils cook pretty fast. I sometimes make lentils for my dog when we run out of dogfood too. :D - Adrian
I can't even imagine what lentil dog farts would be like.... - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
Me neither. I can't smell. :P - Adrian
Oh, that explains it then :D - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
Listen to Adrian. He is the lentil king. - Anika
Maybe time for some lentils soon. - John (bird whisperer)
Sadly, two years later, I still am terrible at making lentils properly :/ - Jennifer Dittrich
I've gotten a little better, but they're still inconsistent. - John (bird whisperer)
Red lentils cook fast, yellow lentils cook slow. I've had the most success when I use red lentils in yellow lentil recipes (and skip the soaking step, if any). This dal is one of my standards (sub red lentils): http://smittenkitchen.com/blog... And you're supposed to whisk everything together at the end, so it doesn't matter so much if they're a bit overcooked. - Meg VMeg

LSW: Joe
What did I learn from the LSW group and from the Wider FF community?
I learned that there are others who feel the same way I do about life, things and stuff. And I love you all for it. Heck, I even love [most] of the FF people who don't feel the same way. - Joe
God. So much. - laura x
most of what I know - lris
That not everybody hates me? - RepoRat
So so much. - Christina Pikas from iPhone
that my colleagues are funny, smart, in touch, and willing to lend a hand instantly - and that the world is not so grim a place after all. - barbara fister
All of the above. LSW restored my faith in librarianship. :-) - Megan loves summer
...pretty much everything I know about libraries...and technology...and what happens when social hits technological... - Cameron Neylon
So much, and so much that's kept me going. (OK if I mine this thread for my C&I reminiscence?) - walt crawford
That there are people who think like me, and people who don't, and there's a place for us all. That organisation need not mean organised. That people will, and do, lend a hand. - Pete's Got To Go
Walt: mine it as much as you want. - Joe
I've learned so much from the LSW! I feel pretty new around here, but have found the attitudes and passion here really inspiring. It's honestly helped me stand up more for the stuff I believe it at my own place of work. Plus the LSW has given me models for passionate-but-collegial disagreements. And models for robust theorizing about the library, or robust research into library stuff. - Regular Amanda
what it means to have a professional network I can immediately rely on at all hours. - Hedgehog
That ragequit doesn't mean forever. - Rochelle *boom* Hartman from iPhone
I agree with pretty much everything Cameron says here: http://cameronneylon.net/blog... - John Dupuis
i joined FF almost the day i started my first librarian gig. to me being part of libraryland means seeing all of you on FF daily. - jambina
How awesome non-medical librarians are, and some of the amazing things they're accomplishing every day. - Rachel Walden
To me, and this is mine-able, the great thing about FF was that it was the first place that I saw that really facilitated people interacting that might not have met before. In my case, it was scientists and librarians. We librarians had a chance to see what scientists were really thinking about and really doing at the edges of the open science world and to reflect back and give... more... - John Dupuis
So much - including through all these discussions about migrating content and community to a new site. I love how thoughtful you all are! - Grumpator
What a lot of you have said, but just that you all are my people. I love having a wide network of smart people who will give me advice, agree or disagree with me in meaningful ways, and give me a broader perspective on things. Also, I just like you all. - kaijsa
FF and the LSW is my go to professional network. - ♫Maurice the Dolphin♫
^^^ This. Twitter is useful for knowing what' going on and for links to interesting stuff, but the depth of the conversation here and the capacity to get good help or discussion about an issue - and sense of close community - there's nothing like it. - barbara fister
The ability to say something in more than 140 characters helps me gather my thoughts. Even though other services have threaded discussions like this, the LSW has the right diversity and mix of people for me. The ALATT had a chance to be like the LSW at one point, but that place feels more like a frat house, and people are trying to get the most attention. I know I am generalizing, and there are good libns in ALATT, but the loud ones get the most notice. - Joe
I learned that goodbye does not mean never again hello. Also, I learned that a career is more than just the daily job, as it can have so many facets and directions. - Julian
Who are the cool librarians who know the real deal.. who "get it"... - LibrarianOnTheLoose
^^^ This! Being part of LSW has changed my life. I've found support for incubating ideas, been challenged to grow and expand in a professional humorous way by fun super smart colleagues, and especially during the move and transition to my current place of work, LSW kept me from feeling isolated and alone in my work. - Galadriel C.
How awesome it is to have a tribe that has my back. That not all libraries are dysfunctional. That there are amazing people doing interesting work. That it's ok to have professional heroes/crushes/whatever-you-wanna-call it and sometimes you get to meet them and they have foibles and interior lives and that's cool. - Jaclyn aka spamgirl
Like others have said, LSW has restored my faith in the future of librarianship. It's meant more than I can express to have a place to converse with such thoughtful, open people. - Jen
Besides learning the more practical aspects of things, a lot of my thinking on librarianship has been shaped by discussions here eg. IL, open access just to name two. - aaron from Flucso
Just to let folks know: I've put together a first draft of the C&I essay on FF and LSW (too long, but that's C&I: for concise excellence, go to Barbara Fister) and included *almost* all of this thread, names included. The exception: I omitted part of one of Joe's comments because, even though I agree fully with his thoughts on ALATT, I'd just as soon not go there by name this time around. Maybe I've been burned too badly by them. - walt crawford
So: If there's anybody who *doesn't* want your comment used (including your screen name), LET ME KNOW within the next two weeks. The thread reads really well as a closing section of the article. - walt crawford
I'm happy to have my comment and name included, but if you could please use the now slightly edited version I'd appreciate it. - Galadriel C. from Android
Galadriel: Done. - walt crawford
I should really try to say something more intelligent. - laura x from iPhone
LSW reminded that becoming a librarian was the right choice for me and that the job I had when I find this place was not the right choice for me. - John: Thread Killer
Thank you! - Galadriel C. from Android
Okay, here we go: Before I became a librarian or ever thought of it, I was an activist. I organized and demonstrated and got arrested and generally worked my tail off to try to change the world and make people's lives better--sometimes those of my colleagues; sometimes those of people I'd never met. When I started working in libraries, I felt I lost a lot of that. I still believed in... more... - laura x from iPhone

I know that some of you LSWers were around during my library's flood in 2009 and that a number of you pitched in to contribute to the recovery efforts. I wanted you all to know that this didn't go unnoticed and that LSW has been immortalized accordingly.

I love it! - Stephen Francoeur
Centuries from now, when that plaque is excavated by archeologists, they will learn that the LSW was awesome. - lris

LITA is offering a statistics course in April/May. http://www.ala.org/lita... This has been far too long in the making, I'm super excited about it.
Also, Courtney Fuson gave me the idea that stats education was needed, so Courtney, long last thank yous! - Hedgehog

Sharing with our librarians, too. - kaijsa
Tangentially related, I just learned about a *self-paced* free MOOC in Applied Data Science that's being offered by Syracuse http://ischool.syr.edu/future... - Meg VMeg
Ooh. That Syracuse course looks very interesting. - kaijsa

oh, hey, you're welcome! :) - ~Courtney F
Already two of our library faculty have emailed and thanked me for sending it to the list. So thanks from me, too! - kaijsa
Huge interest at MPOW... now to go beg for $ - Aaron the Librarian
I hope it does well. After doing some preliminary investigation on doing something in this area a couple years back, I gave up on it as a hopeless idea--but what LITA's doing may work better. - walt crawford

I understand this Dorothea Salo knows stuff about things.

Look for the purple streak. - ♫Maurice the Dolphin♫
It's all lies. - RepoRat
RepoRat, I think that's libelous and slanderous. Just wait till Dorothea sees that! - lris
LIES I TELL YOU. (Besides, Dorothea's one of those commie open-access, information-justice freaks, she won't sue.) - RepoRat

I will be moving on from my current position after 7.5 years to the Singapore Management University (SMU) as Library Analytics Manager in late Feb. Many exciting plans in store at my new University but currently trying not to think about it too much and enjoy my long vacation.

Ran into a faculty member on the train last night who had been reading a New Yorker article (this one - http://www.newyorker.com/magazin... ) about permanently saving things online. She was fascinated by the Internet Archive along with http://perma.cc/ - which is new to me (that doesn't mean I didn't just miss conversations ...
...about it before. I have no questions, really. It was just nice to see one of the business faculty all excited about this. :) - ellbeecee
It's a nice article to share with folks for whom the idea of link rot and reference rot is a new thing. - Stephen Francoeur

My grandfather marched to Selma with Dr King. I'm glad and proud that he did, and I also wish things were better now than they are.
Wow. What a legacy! - MoTO Boychick Devil
Does he have photos? - MoTO Boychick Devil
Not that I know of. He just sent us a slightly abridged transcript of a long letter he wrote to his parents just after having completed the march. It ends "I was ashamed for America on Tuesday, ashamed that it was necessary to march in protest against police brutality and on behalf of civil rights. But frightening as it was, there is no place on God’s green earth that I would have traded for the privilege of being in the march in Selma, Alabama." - lris
That is fantastic! Again, what a legacy! - MoTO Boychick Devil
Has he seen the movie? - MoTO Boychick Devil
That is something to be proud of. - Eric - Final Countdown
Also, things are better than they were. What's frustrating is that our culture can't seem to recognize that we have so far to go. - MoTO Boychick Devil
Or that it's so important to our maturation and survival. - MoTO Boychick Devil
I don't know if he's seen the movie. And your last comment reminds me of another passage in Papa's letter where he talks about realizing that there is "profound sense" to the statement that "the Negro will give America back her soul" (in 1960s language) because of the way people were talking about why they were involved in the march. I think he was talking about exactly that maturation and survival. - lris
Wow. what an incredible connection. - laura x from iPhone

Oh ho! It's out! Here's the big deal we're cancelling. http://libraries.calstate.edu/equitab...
This was the publisher that tried to force us to sub to their ebooks in order to keep our current deal. Also, their idea of when a title could be cancelled is insane. - Jaclyn aka spamgirl
Just sent this to my head of collections. - Hedgehog
This is the first US consortium I've seen announcing a big Big Deal cancellation. Did I miss anything, or are y'all pioneers? - RepoRat
Also sent to mine.... - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
Wow. Thanks for posting. Forcing subs to e-books to keep journal deal is indeed insane. - Galadriel C.

Random poking up of the head: I've been missing from the librarian interwebs for a while due to life stuff and figuring out my next step. Many of you already know, but starting in January I will be the new Associate Dean for Learning Resources in charge of the medical library and biomedical communications at ETSU in Johnson City, TN.
Congrats! - Jaclyn aka spamgirl from Android
Yay and hi again! Sounds like a great move -- wishing you the best! - RepoRat

Tell us about the biomedical communications part. I'm curious. - maʀtha
Congratulations! - Jen
Right now, biomedical communications is a digital design and print shop housed inside the medical library. They design & print large-scale items like research posters (including the fabric ones!).

He's the Doctor! EDIT: really, he's the Eighth Doctor as seen in The Night of the Doctor, right? - bentley
My refrigerator is the opposite of that. - Katy S
He's yelling in the library. I don't think he's supposed to yell in the library. - Katy S
I want that office. - bentley
Just one librarian? Seems they've heard about the job market. - Katy S
wonder if he's full time with benefits? - ellbeecee
He can't find a book? Librarian, heal thyself! - Katy S
he's killing librarians? totally almost what my NaNo plot started with if I'd tried this year. - ellbeecee
I really think he's channeling Paul McGann. - bentley
Does that room qualify as a maker station/space? - Katy S
They referenced my .sig file! "Be safe, don't get killed, save your receipts." - bentley
Talk about rolling compact stacks! - Katy S
There's the catalog you were looking for, Katy S. - bentley
So, for episode 2 we're injecting a bit of slapstick. - bentley
I missed a bit. I might have to catch this again later. - Katy S
They're two separate episodes, each for one hour. - bentley
So, I missed the end of one and the beginning of the other? Perfect. - Katy S
If I'm interpreting this correctly, they're basically making the librarians all men? Or will she still stick around? (Like I said, I missed a bit.) - Katy S
She's in the advertising graphics, so I assume she's staying. - bentley
Got it! - Katy S
#othersideoftheworld a) Is this a new series or something? b) Is it worth going to effort to acquire by means that shall not be specified? - Deborah Fitchett
a) Yes. b) as yet to be determined. - Katy S

Thanks, I missed it earlier, but I'm recording now. - Greg GuitarBuster
Both parts will air again Friday at 8pm (EST) on the CW. #nocable - LB needs a vacation from Android
Yay! - bentley
I kept thinking I had seen Cassandra (one of the new Librarians) in something and she kept reminding me of Amy Acker but I knew that wasn't it. And now I do know where I've seen her before -- she was Claudia, in Relic Hunter https://www.youtube.com/watch... -- but she doesn't remind me of Claudia at all. Weird. - bentley
Caught the first episode last night on DSTV (South Africa's cable network) .... fun. There is a FB page called The Librarians - apparently the first episode is free for download on itunes (guess in the US store only) - Ingrid Thomson
Not to be confused with the Australian series "The Librarians" http://www.imdb.com/title... - Ingrid Thomson
They weren't on iTunes when I looked yesterday but they're there now. First ep free, second ep $2.99. - bentley
Much better than the movies. But then, there's less Noah Wylie and more Rebecca Romijn. - DJF from Android
But it does feel like, "OK, Warehouse 13 had been cancelled, so let's revive this thing and capitalize on the existing market." - DJF from Android
I describe Warehouse 13 as Friday the Thirteenth The Series but without the curses. (I love both shows.) - bentley
Deborah, according to the podcast entry for an interview with one of the series' writers, they're going to be debuting worldwide via streaming this week: http://smartbitchestrashybooks.com/podcast... - Katie
well, it says the show is debuting worldwide "within days", but it doesn't say anything about streaming. In the states, you have to be a cable subscriber to log in to the TNT streaming site, and the Canadian station showing it, Space, isn't making it available for streaming. Not yet, at least. - DJF
@bently - that bugged the boyfriend too - so we looked it up and she was also the girlfriend on Kick Ass 2 - which is where he remembered her from. - WebGoddess
@Deborah: Tried to DM you some info that shall not be specified. :-) - bentley
Also, the Asian guy with the Australian accent needs to actually talk more. - DJF from Android
So is John Laroquette a real part of this series or just trivial window-dressing? (Trying to decide whether to watch it Friday on The CW.) - walt crawford
John Laroquette will be playing the role of Giles from Buffy The Vampire Slayer. - ♫Maurice the Dolphin♫
He doesn't appear at all until the second hour of the pilot - DJF from Android
p.s. the episodes on itunes (not sure about amazon) will all be extended versions with additional footage. - holly #ravingfangirl
Finally getting to watch! - LB needs a vacation from Android
So: we watched both hours on The CW. Enjoyed it quite a bit. But it's not clear when/whether the rest of the series will air on The CW...and no, we're not going to double our cable bill so we get TNT. At worst, I suppose, we wait for DVDs to come out. (Streaming's not an option: our "broad"band isn't broad enough.) - walt crawford
And speaking of Buffy...or, rather, Angel...it took us about a minute to place the art-historian new librarian as an evil lawyer at Wolfram & Hart. So this time he's trying to fight *against* evil magic. Nice change of pace. - walt crawford

Steve's Mr. 12 and Mr. 9 were here last night. I asked Mr. 9 if he'd seen pictures of your house and he hadn't, so we looked at them together. He thinks it's a beautiful house, and he wishes he could see it in person. He obviously still has a thing for you, and he's adorable about it. - Mama Lawson

I hope that some day he can come visit. That would be tons of fun. - lris
