The UQÀM-University of Memphis epigraphic project at Karnak: goals, methodology and results

Since 2011, the University of Quebec in Montreal and the University of Memphis have been working on a joint project inside the vast Hypostyle Hall of the temple of Amen-Ra at Karnak (present-day Luxor) to investigate the hieroglyphic texts and scenes carved onto its 134 columns. The workshop will outline the context for this project, which is presented in the Museum’s family area, describing its objectives, methodology (which relies on technology) and the main results to date. More generally, it will focus on the temple of Karnak’s importance as a fundamental institution in pharaonic Egypt and will be illustrated with many objects from the site that are displayed in the exhibition Egyptian Mummies.

How to make pasta with mushrooms and sausage: the recipe of tagliatelle with sauce

Oh please! Come Fare: Pasta con i funghi e salsicce – la ricetta di tagliatelle con il sugo di funghi e salsicce…. Yes, that’s what it says. It says just that. Doesn’t it say that to everyone? Sure it does! Yes, I’m just not too good in the Italian language, I know.

Food: Lime, Cilantro and Salmon

I’ve been testing out plant based diet – or way of eating and so far, it’s been challenging. What sucks is that the second we are aware of something changing, we become obsessed with all the bad associated with it. In this case, I am having withdrawals for mostly salmon. Not so much beef, or chicken, but for sure salmon. Yesterday, I had my first scrambled eggs, by accident, since I was in a place which offered nothing plant-based for breakfast yesterday, and I had to default to eggs. But that’s okay, I am well disciplined in life and will bounce back to plant-based approach.  And make the following dish for dinner tonight – no rice of course.

Food: Dinner Tonight – Peanut Noodles

Decades ago, I’d go into the grocery store and buy ready made peanut sauce and coconut milk and put together the perfect chicken noodle meal, which was intended for a two-day dinner, but the family always had seconds, it was so delicious. But now, it’s very difficult to find ready made peanut sauce, since all the nut allergies have come to light, the local grocers have all pulled the product off their shelves.

So, since I have peanut sauce and know the family has no allergies, I was happy to come across this recipe.
