Since my last post, I’ve been popping out some incredible meals in the kitchen. Lentil Curry, Rasberry Pancakes that blew my mind, Eggplant Butternut Squash Salad, and even Iced Tea!
Tuesday afternoon I took the E Train to Queens, and got off in Jackson Heights to visit the Indian part of town. Once there, Maxx and I headed straight to Patel Bros. grocery store. We actually got lost at first, but once back on track, we knew exactly where we needed to go. The goal was to buy inexpensive Indian spices, nuts, legumes, etc…and the goal was met.
I came home with produce, spices like Fenugreek, and beans I’ve never heard of, like White Peas.
That night I made a dynamite Lentil Curry with Butternut Squash, Cauliflower, Coconut Milk, and tart Tamarind. I should be blogging about that…
Or, I could be blogging about the incredible pancakes I made yesterday for breakfast. I think I’m becoming a pancake master. I do. And I don’t bother to take photos and blog about them because I can’t stand to be taking pictures of them, and not devouring them!
Or, I could be blogging about my incredible dinner tonight. It was so good, that I couldn’t even save Maxx any! I roasted Butternut Squash and Little Asian Eggplants in a homemade Yogurt Spice Sauce. Once roasted, I toss it with more Yogurt sauce, red onions, and added a generous sprinkle of cilantro to freshen it up. Absolutely divine, and I promise to share it with you, photos and recipe, very very soon! I want to eat it every week!
Instead I am blogging about this…
I wasn’t too happy with this. What is it?
Avocado Golden Beet Salad with Rasberry Yogurt Sauce. Everything apart was divine. The beets were roasted to absolute perfection, and the avocado was super fresh. I ended up eating more than half of the Yogurt sauce before it even touched the beets and avocado, it was great.
The beets and avocado go well together, and I knew that before making the salad. But the yogurt sauce on the beets…weird, and the yogurt sauce on the avocado…simply wrong:(
That’s okay, right? Not every idea tastes as planned
