Cooking with Buddy Bear


I will post in a couple of days about attending an enjoyable Christmas dinner at my wife's house and the extravagant present she gave me.  Right now, I want to tell you about the great time my children and I had today.

Today, the three kids and I had our  fantastic "Christmas morning," opened our presents and ate a special breakfast.  Their actual Christmas morning was spent at their mother's house.

We were all so happy and relaxed.... it was just perfect!  In recent years, our Christmas mornings  had become fairly tense affairs due to our on-going marital problems.  These tensions, of course, became considerably worse (x 10) when my wife found out I was gay, two days before Christmas 2009.  No kidding!

Since it was a bit nippy out (-22 C), the kids' skiing plans were cancelled.  Instead, we spent the morning lazing around watching movies.  I spent the afternoon cooking the East Indian feast pictured here.  We were having ten people for dinner including six teenagers ... just family and closest friends.   I invited my wife but, as I expected, she thanked me but declined.  It would be have been far too emotional for her to come into the home where we lived for over 20 years, the home where we conceived and raised our children.   I understood completely but sent her all the leftovers.

The meal was so delicious, I just had to share it with you.  Over the past twenty years, I've received extensive training in East Indian cookery from my neighbour and work colleague, a sweet lady from Bangladesh.  Rajni assures me that my limited repertoire of East Indian cooking, under her careful tutelage, is perfectly authentic.

  1. That looks delicious!!! I have never even attempted Indian, but do love it, especially some naan, basmati, and some sort of chicken.

  2. Very warming both internally and spiritually.

    Of course, I might ravage rather than kiss the cook.

  9. That looks wonderful. I'm coming over to your place next year for Christmas. And, I don't care if vanilla ice cream isn't authentic Indian cuisine; it's good any time.

    It's great you have such a good relationship with your kids. You're so blessed in that way.

  11. Thanks everyone for your comments and compliments...for both me and the food.

    I wasn't like this for long, obviously. I dropped my pants for about a minute to take this pic while my kids were out running errands in my car.

  12. Mike: you should try cooking Indian sometime; it's pretty fool-proof and so much better than from most restaurants. I'd strongly recommend that you start by making only one dish. Feel free to substitute curry powder for the individual spices found in the recipes, although you can go a very long way with just cumin, coriander and tumeric.

    anne marie: I love my kitchen! The realtor said this layout is now called a "Great Room." It is about 16 x 25 feet and combines kitchen with a main floor family room.

    RG: I'd really like that as well. I so want to hook up with a really experienced guy who knows what he's doing around a man's body....

  14. From Marcel to Buddy Bear:

    Hi Buddy Bear
    What a wonderful meal you prepared. Hard for me to decide: first having fun with that superhot man and butt or saving it for desert?
    Man you look awesome like that in your kitchen.
