I've been eating far too much cake the past week. It's all in preparation for my new microblog (!) coming out in a few months. I'll share more soon. I've been giving away as much cake as I can, and limiting my consumption to "test bites," but in sum, it's still a lot of cake. If you are reading, and live nearby, will you please take some cake? I am very serious. My neighbors, and certainly my husband and Nick, are weary of cake. Nick watched an episode of Sid the Science kid this morning on PBS wherein it's Sid makes a birthday wish to eat cake all day, every day. Nick quipped "He'll be sorry."
In the meantime, sweet potato curry. On naan. It's quick. It's easy. It's delicious. And best of all, it's not cake. Ward off the chills, and dive in headlong, as this easy curry will warm you through and through.
