Today is Mr. Thipu's birthday so we're having pork and noodles.  It's not exactly festive food but it's his favorite dish.

My lamb stew is simmering on the stove now... Just waiting for the spinach to wilt, then lemon zest/juice and it's suppertime :-) :-D Smells terriffic!

The Good Ethnic Boy bought a cookbook today. Oh... my... *drooooooool*

It's The Little Paris Kitchen by Rachel Khoo, and OM NOM NOM I MUST MAKE THESE THINGS!

(Crispy rabbit with a mustard crust. Creme brle. Chocolate lava cake with salted caramel filling. Cassoulet soup with duck and Toulouse sausage dumplings. Meringue with chestnut cream...)

My main problem is going to be resisting the temptation to cook things that I KNOW will set off my IBS. :P :'(

For lunch, I'm making Thai yellow curry with tofu and vegetables.

I bought a bottle of Trader Joe's yellow Thai curry sauce and ran into my usual problem that I get when I make stir-fry, etc. The bottle says it makes 5 servings of sauce, so I pull out what I think is 4 servings worth of each vegetable. Four small potatoes, check. Half a large onion, 3 small carrots, check and check. A quarter of a small head of cabbage that's rolling around in my crisper? Check. Ooh, I even have a block of tofu!

I cook the potatoes and set them aside, then start sauteing the onions and carrots and it's all looking good. I add in the cabbage and think that this will be perfect. I stir in the tofu and add back the potatoes and, look out, my giant skillet is overflowing!  Suddenly the bottle of sauce for 5 servings doesn't even begin to cover my 4. Fortunately I find most of those bottled sauces too salty, so I add enough water to cover all my vegetables.

I really need to learn that they mean 5 servings of meat, which is considerably smaller than 5 servings of vegetables, and that my definition of a serving of vegetables is probably twice as large as everybody else's. Good thing I love leftovers.

Dh and I and DS 16 ( other DS is out playing paintball ) are going out for Mexcian at a little hole in the wall place.  After this horrific week at work and then developing a bronchial asthma - which apparently a result of a virus I had.  I am looking forward to a margarita, chips and a big combo plate !

Roasted asparagus and petite grape tomatoes (in the cast-iron skillet, with olive oil, lemon, garlic, salt and pepper), brown basmati rice, and apple-ginger cranberry sauce.
And a leftover vanilla-almond agave cupcake with vanilla-ginger glaze and Shiraz syrup.

I finished making the meal, realized there was no protein and it was time to go to a Halloween party, and called it a day anyway. At least everything was delicious!

Green salad topped with a hard boiled egg for protein and some Halloween candy.
