And I Call Myself a Domestic Goddess..

Ever since coming here and embracing this new role as a domestic goddess, I have dutily been checking out a few recipe books. Some that I brought over and some on the net. Too used to technical jargons and units, I must now condition myself with new jargons and units. Like the unit "cup", really how much is 1 "cup" I have many sizes of cup, which one is it? But I have get that one sorted out already. *wink*

Then come the ingredients. Some is beyond my comprehension. Since it is beyond my comprehension, I can't even or dare put what the ingredient is here. I might get it all wrong.

But I have been noticing the adjective to an ingredient termed "ground" something. Like ground ginger, ground cinnamon, ground garlic.

All these while I wondered what does this "ground" suppose to mean. Does it mean fresh? Straight from the ground. Like as in ground the soil? The dirt? Straight plucked from the ground? And I thought this recipe is crazy.

Until of course, yesterday, I chatted with my friend. Take my word, the domestic goddess imposter, this lady is THE domestic goddess, true and true. Hail the Domestic Goddess!

Anyway now I know that ground is actually the past tense of grind!

Errr did I tell you that I am the editor of a newsletter here? *rolls eyes*

Lollies said...

idham - not really ladies talk lah. this is just plain english issue aje. :)). That's why I thought it is hilarious. it means dah kena kisar. so basically serbuk.
