A Recipe for Mushroom Curry of YUM

Mushroom Curry with Cashews and Brown Rice

A good amount of button mushrooms, sliced
A half an onion, diced
Fresh Garlic - to taste
Olive Oil
Sea salt - to taste
A good amount of cashews - whole
Curry Powder - to taste
1 ripe tomato
Snow Peas

Brown Rice

In your rice cooker or stovetop combine rice and water to create RICE!

While that’s happening heat up your wok or skillet and add in the onions and garlic along with some of the olive oil. Let these sizzle for a bit then add the mushrooms, snow peas, tomatoes, and curry until cooked through. Add cashews, let sizzle, stirring constantly, add salt as needed. You might need to put more water in the wok to keep it from burning or being too dry (this is what water does)

Apply food to rice, and then insert mixture into mouth. Chew, swallow, etc.

Rat garnish is optional and not for human consumption.

The final outcome will be considerably more smooshy and brown than the image. We just went crazy dressing it up.

Into the Museum

 You may have noticed that some faces are missing from my shop now. . . this is for a very good reason.

 The Tatterpunk’s Carnival of Curiosities is going to have several dolls and hats consigned at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts Gift Shop! This means that my shop is gonna get exposure, as well as meaning that I am gaining recognition as an actual artist. Yes, I know I already was an artist, but this seriously is a big step forward for my shop.

I will be making more dolls of course to be adding to my shop, so it won’t be so naked of them. Also I will be making an art portfolio website soonly with the help of the epic web designer friend I have who is coming back to the states.  There will be awesome! This is a short post, I know, but I’ll keep you all apprised of the progressions of things!

Coming up: A feature on an artist I love (Patricia Ducharme), and a feature on another etsy shop - Itami Designs (Tenshinoitami)!
