When my boyfriend and I went out for our belated valentine’s dinner on Friday night, I had no idea that he put in a note for our reservation that we were also celebrating my acceptance to the PhD program. Only thing is I hadn’t heard back yet (and even if I had, there was no guarantee of that their decision was in my favor). So of course my jaw dropped when the waitress came by with two champagne glasses and a “congratulations” when I was still waiting on that darned email.
Well, the email came in as I was walking out of class this afternoon. Y'all. God took my dreams and made them bigger than I could have ever imagined. I’M GETTING MY PhD IN NURSING. I am overwhelmed with joy. I have the opportunity to be a person of influence in my profession by delving further into end-of-life care; my hope is that our elders will not only live well, but die well also. This is a place not many are willing to go, but I’m going to pave the way in faith– after all, the One who gave me these dreams has already gone before me.
This is an Indian dish which is essentially just potato (aloo) and cauliflower (Gobi).
I made it with a gravy this time but dry tastes as good :)
A few tsps cumin seeds
Salt and sugar
(Sorry for the lack of measurements; I did everything by eye as I didn’t follow a specific recipe)
For the gravy part, sauté the cumin, chili, ginger garlic, onion in oil and then add in the tomatoes. Then add in spices and season.
After about 7 mins (tomatoes should be cooked), grind the mixture to form a paste.
Meanwhile, cook the potato and cauli in a little oil and then add some water and cook.
Once cooked, add in the paste and mix.
Then you can eat it with a lightly spiced rice or Indian bread :)
