I made two-potato latkes with garlic chive soy sour cream, an apple and red onion slaw, steamed broccoli, and a cranberry and brown and wild rice pilaf for dinner last night.
I have truly died and gone to latke heaven. Mmm. (I had leftovers for dinner tonight, and packed more in my fabulous new lunchbox for tomorrow. Wee!) I also made strawberry shortcakes tonight, but since I used frozen strawberries, it was subpar at best. Boo.
I'm thinking about adding a section to my cookbook called "fancy food" -- big, splashy meals for when you want something special and/or when you need to feed a crowd. So far, I have at least three complete menus that could work in that section. (The above latke menu plus some fabulous chocolate cake, a soft taco party menu, and buttloads of Greek appetizers.) What do you think?
BTW, I had leftover tofu scramble, pancakes, and grapes for lunch today. I can't begin to tell you how much I love my new lunchbox. I haven't even been tempted to use a ziploc bag once, since purchasing this awesome bento box. And several of my coworkers are jealous. :)
And, as an update, my missing red sock resurfaced. Hallelujah!
