In which I hurt myself! (But not TOO badly.)

I was minding my own business, chopping up what I thought was cilantro but turned out to be flat-leaf parsley (I can never tell the two apart when I’m in the market), when the knife took a funny turn and went right into my little finger! There was a bit of swearing and a bit more blood, but I got it under control eventually.

More importantly, what was I making when all this happened?

Masala eggplant and chickpeas! It seems like I always say this, but it really was very tasty and very easy to make – basically just toss everything on a baking sheet, roast it, make some rice, throw on some yogurt and cilantro parsley, and you’re done. Couldn’t be much easier, could it?

A bit of a warning, though – it does make very nearly a metric ton of food, so I’ve got some to eat for leftovers and some in the freezer for later (we’ll see how that goes).

When a young girl’s fancy turns to thoughts of…SPIDERS!

Okay. I am NOT pleased. Just last weekend, I proactively spider-bombed my apartment because it’s spring and, you know, all the bugs that have been asleep all winter are starting to wake up and plot all the ways they’ll get into my apartment and walk on me.

What did I JUST smash with a shoe on my living room wall?
