Trail running in the Endowment Lands

Indian Curry

I realize I haven’t posted here in a full week. The first few days were becaues I forgot my SD card at my Mum’s and didn’t get it back till Tuesday. I was pretty busy till the end of the week and after forgetting to blog one day, it was easy to forget the next. Trip reports are daunting tasks but don’t actually take that long.

Today I went for a run for the second time this year around the Endowment lands. 45 minutes: Huckleberry -> Hemlock -> Nature -> Cleveland -> Sherry Sakamoto -> Salal – >Cleveland – > Nature -> Deer Fern -> Huckleberry. I really should start running more as I haven’t been getting a lot of excercise recently. It took a while to find the trail map online, but here it is.

Met my Mum for coffee and picked up some spices from Fraser St. $12 for everything: cumin, coriander, cinnamon, garam masala, shredded coconut, onions, an orange pepper, mushrooms, and an eggplant. It seemed like rather a good deal. I’ll have enough spices for quite a while now.

The curry was quite good. I used 5 cloves, where I normally don’t use any and made the rice with half coconut-milk half-water and a teaspoon of shredded coconut. It was ok, but still not as good as the restaurant. Next time I’ll use better quality coconut milk if I can find it and perhaps more shredded coconut. Though it was quite sweet. I should start experimenting with bay leaves, mustard seeds, fenugreek, and mustard seeds – all ingrediants I have yet to use.
