Just eat it

Fusion food as a concept is kind of trying to quite consciously fuse things that are sometimes quite contradictory, sometimes quite far apart, to see if they'd work.
-Yotam Ottolenghi

So mom and grandma heated up the fried rice from last night and had it for lunch. I discovered at some point after talking with Shelley at the restaurant was actually some sort of Indian/Chinese fusion place. My mom was a little skeptical when she first saw they used long grain rice rather than the rice she was used to but she said it was actually better than chinese fried rice. I gave it a taste and the curry rice was especially nice with a good spicy kick. I'm not sure I'd actually order it without the discount though. $13 is a wee bit on the steep side for an order of fried rice. With the discounts, I only ended up paying $7.50 or so including tax which was a hell of a deal. The only downside with the fusion is that it'd probably make you fat...

Oh, it looks like peeing at some point during the night or whatever dropped my weight down to under 305 this morning, so I've officially crossed the 50 pound loss threshold. I guess the goal is to toss another 5 to get down past the psychological inflection point and then see how far I can push it. The skinniest I've ever gotten doing that no carb diet was a little over 280, so it's still 25 pounds to go before I'm breaking virgin territory.
