Rice Fire

I love Indian food!
Dum Aloo is my favorite. It's potatoes in a semi-fiery tomato sauce with lots of good spices. Mmmmm and samosas and naan.

I wish I could find a recipe for the red relish that's often served in Indian restaurants for an appetizer. I think it's made out of finely chopped onion and lemon juice, but what makes it red and gives it such a great flavor? Cumin? Annatto?-that would give it a bright red color. Hmmm. I guess I'll keep looking.

So far today at work I have done ONE, yes, count it, one Abd/Pelvis CT on a chemo pt.

My boss asked me today if I would be interested in working from 2pm to 2am x 3 days a week without week-ends and NO CALL!!!!
This seems like a pretty good deal to me. I'll have to see if it works out though. I don't think I would be interested if I still had to work week-ends.

I wish I knew what kind of shifts other x-ray depts. worked.
As I've just passed my Mamm boards (in Dec. score of 98, thanks very much!), it would kind of suck if I didn't get to do mamms at all. They only schedule mamms until 3pm, because there's only a staff of one(me!) in the dept after 3:30pm.
Ho Hum, have to see how it goes.

For the redness, perhaps you could try paprika...? That gives a red colour doesn't it?
Just an idea ;p

Congrats on the offer! Also, BIG congrats on the board score! My boss is after me something fierce to get an M behind my name but right now I have to ambition to. Maybe someday.

No weekends, no call? Where can I sign up??

Thanks!
They didn't really ask me if I wanted to do Mamms - hey guess what we signed you up for mamm school- but now that I'm doing them it's OK.
I guess the dept wants to wait until my boss retires before we change the shifts :(
But he'll be 65 in about 6 months so...not too long to wait.
