  • You're too kind, I don't like monotony in the kitchen so I've got to try different things as often as I can.

    I'm using red bells with the asparagus, green bells would be too bitter.

    Your soup sounds lovely, I'll have to try that myself.

    • Oven cooked potato and sweet potato. Marinated and fried tofu. Vegan sausage. Home-made hummus and a beer gravy to top it all off. All vegan, all delicious and it was a hit with the hubby too.

      • Creamy pasta, vegan style.

        Mashed avocado instead of cream.

        Boiled pasta with broccoli.
        Stir fried kale with mushrooms.
        Drained pasta and mixed in the kale and mushrooms.
        Added one mashed avocado with a few drops of lemon juice. Stirred everything together. Serve with salt and pepper.

        So freaking yummy!

                • Last weekend we made a batch of pork and vegetable dumplings and froze them so I'll make some of those and stir fry some vegetables. Not feelin' the stove this week.

                            Lucky you. Mine was plodding along and then two days of rain and one of heat made it triple in height and go to seed practically overnight without any growth in edible leaves. I'm seeding round two now...

                            Pasta with a lemon and sour cream sauce. We're both too tired to cook anything more complicated tonight. It's amazing how much energy babies can suck out of you. Tomorrow is supposed to be sweet potato salad and a salad of whatever's in the garden and the farmer's market. And probably some baguette with fresh ricotta and honey for desert.

                              The arugula is one of the few things that IS doing well. With all that rain we got here as well I'm overrun with caterpillars. I didn't want to have use a pesticide, natural or not, but I didn't have a choice. The watermelon radishes were looking great and then within a week they're 3/4 eaten and half dead. The brussels sprouts look sickly as well. I did one round of the pesticide on Saturday and I have to do one more this Saturday and then I have to wait a week before I harvest anything. By the following weekend I think the only thing that would be ready to pull is the purple potatoes anyway so hopefully this stuff works.

                              Tonight's dinner is jerk chicken (already marinating at home), rice with pigeon peas (no coconut milk though) and probably a salad to finish up the greens in the fridge.
