compelled to cook
We are having absolutely horrible weather in the Cities today, (there is a sheet of ice over absolutely everything! scary walking and driving,) so, even though I am planning a huge Thanksgiving feast for dinner tonight, I felt compelled to cook something wonderful for lunch. Really, I just needed an excuse to turn the oven on! (We don't seem to have heat today . . . damn radiators.) :(
Anyhow, I had ingredients on hand for scrambled tofu, but I made a complete change in my plans, used much of the same produce, and came out with an Indian feast instead!
I cheated in a big way, and dug into the frozen samosas, frozen naan, and jarred mint chutney I bought at Little India last weekend. I did manage to whip up some tomato, potato, and spinach dal, though! A simple pot of Basmati rice rounded out the meal.
Tonight's dinner post will feature my "Very Vegan Thanksgiving" menu, with posts following this week with a review of each recipe I chose. Stay tuned for some delicious eats!
