I haven't cooked since Monday night! (Really, unless you count serving soup out of the Crock Pot and making quesadillas cooking, I haven't cooked since Sunday.) Egad! I guess I did bake Monday night, (muffins and granola,) but still . . . the moral of the story is, it was good to get back into my kitchen tonight. Dinner:
Millet-Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms, from Vegetarian Times, with a side of garlicky, balsamic-vinegary kale. I really don't care for millet, but I enjoy it in this recipe for some odd reason. Good thing, because it's damn tasty! Dan almost considered a second mushroom half, but restrained himself.
I think he was saving room, because he convinced me to go for a walk with him, promising me an ice cream cone at the end of our travels! We started our walk at the co-op, since Dan wanted to pick up some tea and we needed groceries anyway:
local, organic, whole-wheat pastry flour
local, organic rolled oats
locally-roasted, organic, fair-trade coffee
local part-skim mozzarella
HERBS & SPICES:
organic paprika from a local company
organic tomato sauce
Seventh Generation dish soap
organic white button mushrooms
local hydroponic lettuce
local, organic plain yogurt
local, organic eggs
I have plans to hit the Farmer's Market and Asian grocery store tomorrow, to pick up a few additional things.
In the end, the ice cream cone was worth the effort put in to obtaining it! Pumpkin ice cream is a good, good thing.
