sexy/sweatpants/inside day

i am sick and feeling gross.

however, something wonderful happened today which encouraged me to cook.

mashed brussel sprouts with cream and parmesan
roasted potatoes and asparagus
eggplant, tempeh and tomato pot pie
chocolate chip cookies... that.. burned.

only vegetables.

i spent most of the day looking at recipes (except time spent at work.)



i tweaked a few of them so i could fix something with the ingredients i had at home.

this is what we ate for dinner.

walnut, red pepper, green onion salad on a roasted yam cake - with a dijon dressing, and goat cheese.
roasted carrots and beets with thyme and honey
spinach gratin with gruyère

if you are hungry.

if you are hungry, and can handle a japanese breakfast in the morning.  you should really do it.

its remarkable.

miso, dashi, rice noodles (or steamed rice) wasabi, seaweed, raw egg yolk.

i feel very nourished.

try to finish the whole thing, and fail, for sure.

non-stop soup.

i am quite fond of this tortilla soup i made.

it seemed like quite a cohesive soup.

whatever that means.

flax + water = egg

a friend and i did some vegan (almost) baking yesterday and it was fun.

she did most of it, as i'm a bit goofy when it comes to creating perfect baked goods.

it was nice to bake with her, and it seemed therapeutic to some degree.

these oatmeal cookies were so good.  she didn't even follow the recipe.  holy.

what. a. pro.

our friend was a bit down, so we made him a special one.

i think he was happier.

nutmeg, yum.

can you korma?

it is cold outside but warm in here, so i am happy.

lately i've had a winter attitude (bad) so i am inside tonight cooking spicy food, watching hockey and organizing stupid things. like bills.

i made a cauliflower korma, which i was pleased with.

now i am warm. and full.

cumin, coriander, cinnamon, cardamom, cilantro - you are so good to me.

good girl, eat meat.

i had a good meal friday night with people who i think are great.

it was exciting to learn something new (chicken roasting!) and eat food that was perfectly comforting.

it was very fun, and the meal, very satisfying.

i think often this is rare.

we roasted the  chicken with plenty of garlic, thyme, butter and rosemary.

made a salad with fennel, apple, gorgonzola, and arugula.

and roasted parsnips and potatoes along side the bird.

we ate and ate, talked food, charlie sheen, cocktails.
