I participated in this project - and the book has been published, hurray! The proceeds benefit the American Quilt Study Group. Get your copy on Amazon! So many wonderful quilts by quilters much more sophisticated than I will ever be! Ya, I was blown away to see mine on the cover;).
I just got my book and can't wait to read every page. At first glance, my thought is WOW. Wendy and Barb have stunning quilts in it. It's really fun to read all the essays too.
Meanwhile here in Tokyo..... I'm going gangbusters on David's indigo Log Cabin quilt. I need 80 blocks and I have just tipped the scales, with 44 finished. I'm in a good rhythm making four blocks a day.
Today I walked to the post office and grocery store. On a mission to make "Kare Raisu" (curry rice) tonight. It is the ultimate comfort food - cheap, filling, the best. Massive curry section:
The brand we like is called "Vermont Curry". Trying #3 medium, tonight.
If you happen to subscribe to New York Times Cooking, you will have seen this amazing feature about making homemade Japanese curry bricks from Sonoko Sakai. Ironically, here in Tokyo I absolutely do not have room for so many bottles of spices, a spice grinder, etc. We will stick with Vermont curry for now!;).
Saute chicken, onion, add in some apple. Meanwhile in a separate pot simmer carrots and potatoes in some dashi (broth). Combine all together, and add in a few curry bricks. Stir, stir, stir, and voila, you have a thick savory-sweet Japanese curry. Serve over Japanese rice, so good!
