Moosewood Bible

Erin knocked out another great meal with Tunisian Potato Turnovers, a recipe from a Moosewood Restaurant cookbook we have. There's always something great lurking in those books, especially the Tuscan sandwich we made a few weeks ago ... think lots of marinara and roasted eggplant.

Tonight, we mixed things up with curried cauliflower, chicken saag (saag sauce pre-made thanks to Trader Joe's) and some fluffy Jasmine rice (sorry, we didn't have Basmati). We always like Indian, and were celebrating the uber-Oscar winnings of Slumdog Millionaire last night, the best movie I've seen recently.

Lastly, we finished things off properly with Ben & Jerry's Cherry Garcia wedged with a chocolate chip cookie. Yum!

Cold Comfort Foods

Apparently Cupid decided the Adams didn't need a whopping shot of luv this Valentine's Day - he gave us big ol' head colds instead.

As Scott and I mega dose on Dayquil, Nyquil, and any other -Quil we can find, I'm noticing that I'm getting more picky about the foods I'm eating while my nose is stuffed, my eyes totally gloss over, and my throat gets tickled more than Elmo ever could.

On my list for fave comfort foods when the cold season hits:
Tea, hot, any kind, but especially Lemon Zinger from Celestial Seasonings (I'm a sucker for those inspirational quotes on the box!)

Soup. Duh - first dibs on Chicken Noodle. Avoid the Trader Joe's version - I actually prefer Progresso's - less canny-tasting and the noodles are more substantial.

Spaghetti and Meat Sauce. One of my ultimate fave comfort foods. Hot, meaty, and filling. Whoa.

Oatmeal. Again, hot, steaming and filling. My favorite add-ins are Craisins, a little cinnamon, walnuts, and a slosh of maple syru…
