Listen in, listen Ian!
Man, I never post any more. Bad show. Anyway, I cooked great food yesterday and I had to share it. Mexican slow cooked pork is the best thing I've made in the slow cooker yet. I used the abodo recipe from here and had lime and coriander1 rice with it. It was fantastic, and there was loads. There's not loads now, especially since I finished off most of the leftovers tonight.

National Geographic's Photography Contest 2010 is good.

This weekend I played poker on Friday night, and barely left the house after that. It was lovely.

1Yes, Americans, coriander

It's not just Americans! Spaniards, Mexicans, and other Latin Americans will agree. "Cilantro" is Spanish for "coriander". Actually, we only call the leaves "cilantro", not the seeds. I should know -- I'm from LA and you have to put it on everything here or else you get cited. True story.

I may have to move to LA then. Oh god, the smell when you chop it is like nothing else.

Yeah, you have to feel for the poor saps who are genetically unable to taste it. They say it tastes like soap.

I think it tastes soapy.

Doesn't stop me eating it, mind.

I never knew that. Tastes great, but smells really great, especially freshly ground seeds.

aha - that's the distinction! I guess I read it as 'fresh = cilantro, dried = coriander' but I am assuming you only dry / crush the seeds).
