Today I got it in my head I want to have Indian food on my trip. I went to Trader Joe’s and got Basmati rice and some packed food that can be boiled in their foil sacks. Also ran over to Whole Foods and picked up a variety of Indian sauces in jars. The plan is to get canned chicken and heat it up on the camp stove and then add the sauces and simmer them together. My friend Dave tells me the canned chicken tastes like shit, but we’ll see. He may be right. The other option is a powdered Tikka Masala sauce that requires some fresh ingredients. Onion, ginger, and garlic should hold up pretty well in my Spider’s trunk. All I need is a good main ingredient. Tofu? Not sure it keeps.
I read online that Clif Bars are awesome energy bars that don’t taste terrible, so I picked bought a nice mix of them from Trader Joe’s.
The mail was also kind to me and brought me the last component of my mini HD camera, the 16GB micro SDHC card. Ain’t technology grand?!
