One of my favorite cooking smells of all time must be the unique aroma that comes from dropping curry leaves in a frying pan of hot oil. The leaves come from (of course) the curry tree and are used in Indian and Sri Lankan cooking. While cooking a particular Sri Lankan dish recently, I also got dried red chili up my nose. That smells like burning.

Anything with the word chili seems to be dangerous around you. ;)

It's true. I shouldn't even get near the country of Chile. Just in case my accident prone nature is a poor speller.

Yesterday's Scent of the Day was possibly the most horrid, face-burning thing i've experienced in a while.

I'm trying to forget that particular Scent of the Day. If I had merely put that scent into words here, then the faces of all who read it would surely melt off their skulls. I'll continue to pretend that curry leaves were the scent of my day.
