curry-dip update

Forgot to say in my post yesterday that I deviated from La Fuji Mama's easy peasy curry dip recipe a bit. She called for a mayo/sour cream combo, and what I actually did (because the cost of sour cream in Japan is sky high) is use mostly plain natural yogurt with a little tiny squirt of Japanese mayo (I've never been a mayo fan). It turned out really well, actually! Probably with the sour cream it would've been creamier, but I've gotten to the point where I substitute plain yogurt for almost anything: buttermilk, sour cream, mayo, toothpaste. (OK, just kidding about the toothpaste.)

I did the same thing living in Japan! Yeah, paying for sour cream is extortion. Glad it worked for you. :-)
