Wow guests with a dish that fuses elements of cuisines around the world.

Directions:

  1. Put the pasta in a 2-quart glass bowl that is microwave safe. Add 2 cups of water or until the pasta is completely submerged in the liquid. If you prefer, flavour the water with seasonings or use stock or broth instead for extra flavour. Microwave the pasta uncovered at power 10 for 7-9 minutes, stirring once during the cooking time. Drain any extra liquid. Set pasta aside.
  2. Dice chicken into 1/2-in. (1-cm) pieces. Combine chicken, garlic, ginger, olive oil, curry powder & paste, green onions in a microwavable casserole dish; mix well. Microwave, covered, at power 10 for 4 minutes; stir halfway to separate chicken.
  3. Add the cream, tomatoes, green onions and red peppers to the chicken mixture and send back to the microwave for an additional 2 ½ minutes.
  4. Pour the chicken curry sauce over the cooked pasta and finish with a drizzle of yogurt and the chopped cilantro overtop.

Ingredients:

  • 1 chicken breast, cubed
  • 300 g. fusilli pasta
  • 2 green onions, sliced thinly
  • 2 tbsp. curry powder
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 tbsp. curry paste

  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 tbsp. ginger
  • 1 tomato, diced
  • 2 green onions, sliced thinly
  • 1 red pepper, sliced thinly

Five key Back to Busy reminders from London Drugs

The annual transition from the lazy days of summer to the school year is upon us, as well as the chaos and stress that come with it. Back to school can mean some anxiety for kids and parents, homework and clothing battles and a lot of change. Here are some tips to help with the transitions:

Start Early

The transition to back to busy is less jarring for everyone if you do some little things ahead of time.

Shopping early will help avoiding crowds but also the kind of pressure that can lead you to overspend. Try shopping for key items online. From the comfort of your home you can compare prices, examine features, and have your order ready for pickup in-store within two hours. London Drugs also offers free standard shipping on all orders over $200.

Book of the Month – September 2014

book_of_the_month_blogThis month we are reviewing Shantaram by Gregory David Roberts

ShantaramShantaram by Gregory David Roberts

An escaped convict with a false passport who flees maximum security prison in Australia for the teeming streets of a city where he can disappear. Accompanied by his guide and faithful friend, Prabaker, the two enter Bombay’s hidden society of beggars and gangsters, prostitutes and holy men, soldiers and actors, and Indians and exiles from other countries, who seek in this remarkable place what they cannot find elsewhere. As a hunted man without a home, family, or identity, Lin searches for love and meaning while running a clinic in one of the city’s poorest slums, and serving his apprenticeship in the dark arts of the Bombay mafia.

Reviews
“I cannot speak highly enough of Shantaram, a beautifully written, epic story. It’s one of those novels you just devour, but at the same time you know you should slow down and savour it. I found myself re-reading some passages twice, because the language and imagery was just so brilliant. I highly recommend it”. – Review by Melissa

Book of the Month
Every month we will be featuring a new book to be showcased in our Book of the Month. Staff members and friends will be reading the book and posting their reviews. We’d love to hear what you thought of these books as well. Post your comments and let us know.

Shantaram is available at London Drugs along with many other great titles and is on sale for the month of September.
