Google Goggles Magic

Last night a friend complained about a curry recipe gone wrong, so I decided to offer up the one I used to make with a certain amount of frequency. It’s from a 1970s Time Life cookbook that I vaguely remember swiping from my friend Jehan in college. I took a picture on my cell phone to send it along.

Chicken Curry Recipe

 

The page is sufficiently stained with turmeric to realize how often it was made.

A little while later I noticed a Goggles Alert on my cell phone, it had scanned the image, and returned the following URL as a hit: http://littlechefapp.com/recipes/144571-chicken-curry-authentic#.UOGjR2JQCoM

Dead on. The future is pretty awesome some times.

Blueberry Daiquiris

I’m always looking for good simple drinks that involve lots of real fruit and basic liquor that you’ve already got in your liquor cabinet.  After coming home from picking 6lbs of blueberries, I eventually found a recipe for blueberry daiquiris that fit the bill.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup frozen blueberries
  • 1/2 cup light rum
  • 1/2 lime, juiced
  • 1/2 cup crushed ice
  • 1/4 cup superfine sugar

Directions

In a blender, combine all ingredients and process for about 30 seconds. Pour into a chilled glass.

Yields 1 drink

Realize it’s a big and strong drink.  It is slightly more than 1 of our margarita glasses holds, and it’s nearly 3 shots of rum per “drink”.  You could probably get away with about 2/3 as much rum (probably cut back the sugar if you did) for something less high octane.

Damn though, it’s seriously tasty.  This alone might be reason enough to best our season record of 21lbs of picked blueberries.
