Vegan Veggie Korma

I encourage substitutions because cooking with what you have on hand and taste-as-you-go are the best ways to cook. This will make your entire house smell like aromatic Indian spices and you will (if you went to school at Berkeley) be immediately transported back to the glory days of meals on meals on meals at House of Curries.   

Ingredients:

Heat enough oil to cover bottom of pan, and add onions, curry powder, garam masala, cumin. Cook ~3 minutes, add garlic and ginger. Continue to cook until onions are translucent. 

Add carrots, potatoes, cauliflower. Mix thoroughly and let them sweat for a few minutes on high heat. At this point the veggies should all have that delicious yellow curry tint to them. 

Add tomato sauce, coconut milk. Bring to boil and simmer for 10-15 minutes, until potatoes are cooked but still a bit firm. Salt to taste.

Add peas, garbanzo beans, and simmer until veggies are your desired consistency. Garnish with cilantro. Serve with rice. 

Makes 4 hungry girl servings.

Last day on child & adolescent outpatient psych. I debated whether I wanted to wear black flats or black oxfords with this outfit, and eventually chose the black oxfords. Now I’m at work and having second thoughts…

Time to see some patients! Best thing about child and adolescent outpatient psych is not having to wear a white coat.

Medical school is really cramping my style. 

I bought these cute smoking loafers online the other day and when they arrived, I tried them on around the house. They passed my stringent looks and comfort standards (at that moment, anyway) and so I decided to keep them. 

I wore them to work on Thursday and by the end of the day the sides of my feet were so achey I practically limped home. The only other pairs of shoes I had been wearing to work were two pairs of Clarks flats (same style, different colors) that were also comfy on try-on but I made sure to break in for a month before I wore them to work. 

Unfortunately, I forgot this fact, and am now suffering through an attempted accelerated break-in of these shoes with my thickest wool socks. My feet hate me. 

Psych means

There is such thing as donut addiction. Clockwise from top L: plain vanilla cake (for Sam), lime-vanilla-graham cracker, lemon-blueberry-mint, and an encore from blueberry cake #donuts #donutfriend #nofilter
