Curried Beef Short Ribs

Note: I found this was more realistically four servings.

Finishing this dish with lime zest and juice brightens its rich flavors.

Yield 6 servings (serving size: about 3 ounces ribs, 2/3 cup rice, and about 2 1/2 tablespoons sauce)

My Monday
8:15 - at the DMV the minute it opened.
8:40 - when they told me I had to go to town hall to switch plates.  It cost me $10 for a copy of the current registration.
  - Work -
11:40 - 12:15 - Town Hall where they tell me only the DMV can switch plates.  They write me a short list of next steps to take.  It cost my 45 cents for the parking meter.

12:20 - 12:45 - I go home for lunch.  I will need my energy to deal.

12:50 - 1:10 - All set with the DMV and I have successfully switched plates with a car we no longer own. $0

1:15 - 1:45 - Town Hall where I get the plate off the car we don't own any more moved to the new van.  This is where NH makes up for no sales tax.  Ouch.  I figure as long I am there I will renew Matsi's dog license ($7.50).  Now we are both street legal.

2:00 Back at work.  Needless waste of time.  No wonder people hate us government employees.

On a different note I went to return library books after work.  The guy in front of me had a whole pile.  The one on top was "The Divorce Handbook."  The best part - he was wearing an anklet bracelet tracking device.  He is going to need a lot more than a book to get through that divorce.
