– Cowboy saying
The phase passed and suddenly the deal died, my friends ran off to do their own thing and the project stalled. Now I’m bored out of my mind and I’m irritated with myself for being bored because I know when things pick up I’ll be complaining again. Actually I’m still complaining. Basically I never stop complaining.
Chronic discontent needs to be recognized as a serious physiological disorder because I think it’s killing me. Tox/detox/retox or hyperventilate/vegetate/hyperventilate. Maybe I’m actually a tiny hamster on a very large exercise wheel, frantically getting nowhere fast.
I turn to potatoes to calm me down. I think it’s because potatoes are such a large part of my culture. The people of Bihar may not know when, if ever, their streets will be cleaned but we know our favourite food, vegetable and passion. Potatoes.
This is a lovely, clean potato salad, without any of the weighty cream and mayo people usually use. Just simple, fresh flavours – perhaps the most virtuous potatoes you’ll ever eat:
