I'm making spicy roasted carrot soup with quinoa, and a lovely plum crumble with an almond crust for pudding.

I made tofu-heavy miso soup, and we had leftover brownies and tonic with bitters and lime (no alcohol).

Collard greens, spicy stewed black eyed peas, and spiced acorn squash.

Spaghetti with meat sauce, corn bread and a kiwi. Hot spiced cider for dessert.

Just had the most interesting mental picture conjured up there!

Wonder if the NZers on the board had the same reaction?  *snerk*
Look out... 
It's one of the Aussie Contingent!

I roasted a smallish eggplant, cut in half and covered with fresh garlic, rosemary, dill and parsley and olive oil. Cooked green beans with dill and parsley, and served with hummus, olives and pita.

The previous night, I followed a recipe for eggplant 'carnitas style' and served with a tangy cucumber salad in tortillas.

Just googled the recipe, thanks!

When she suggests cooking it longer, go for it! I found it really tasty but too soft except in a few parts from the edges of the pan.

*sporfles* Sorry, I should clarify in future- the small fuzzy green edible kiwi! :)

Five things observe with care,
To whom you speak,
Of whom you speak,
And how, and when, and where.

Thanks for the tip: I love crispy pan fried eggplant. I actually do something very similar with squash or zucchini in the summer. Grate, wring out the water, toss with taco spices and sautee.

Tonight I'm going out for dinner and drinks at a Thai restaurant with the girls. I haven't been out to dinner except for taquerias in months and I'm really looking forward to a ridiculous cocktail and some fancy tofu.

Green beans with garlic and parsley, and pasta with black beans and tomatoes and Mexican spices.

Vegetarian chili.  They sent me home with the leftovers from my son's cadet vigil.  For some reason, most of them were afraid of the veggie chili!  Well, this means dinner tomorrow night, too... and nothing tastes better than leftover chili!  (Mmmmmm!)

Triscuits dipped in french onion dip and those super-soft supermarket cookies with the neon frosting and sprinkles

Leftover steak hibachi. I have a new favorite place to get it from - it's less expensive than any of the other places, and better than all but the most expensive of those.  There are at least seven hibachi places within about five miles of me - so it has a lot of competition!
