I am going out to eat with a friend after I get off work - to a specialty taco place :)

Homemade chowder with a bunch of veggies made for my veggie friend (corn, celery, potatoes, bell peppers). But then after she left I couldn't help myself and fried some bacon to garnish my second round. :)

Yesterday ended up being roasted asparagus, beet and feta salad and deviled eggs.

Care to share your recipe for Mexican seasoned tempeh?

I went to a wine festival, where I tasted a lovely array of whites, and munched on cheese, fruit, veggies, smoked salmon, flat bread pizzas, fancy tacos, etc. Then my friends and I went to a cafe for dessert and coffee (where I treated my driver.)

My recipe is basically cutting the tempeh into very small pieces,  and cooking it in a pan with a touch of oil, a random smattering of seasonings (heavy on cumin, cayenne and garlic, usually with lime juice) until lightly browned. Goes well in tacos or on nachos.

Last night,  baked potatoes and spinach curry.

It's supposed to start snowing again this afternoon.  It's also Oscar night. 

We'll be celebrating with a Mongolian hot pot.  It's easy, it's fun and it's festive.

Sounds good! I'll have to try that soon.

I created a "falafel loaf" this afternoon. Good enough for leftovers tonight, too.

I went out for sushi tonight.  Had a couple of so-so rolls, but I finally got to try sea urchin!  I've been trying to order it for three years when I saw it on the menu but tonight was the first time the kitchen actually had it available...it was good.  Kind of like an oyster but less slimy and not as strong tasting.

17 bean soup, a big pot of fluffy white rice, pineapple and rum glazed ham, raspberry cheesecake brownies.

Upgrading the phone took too long, so pasta with marinara, Italian sausage, roasted mushrooms, bread and bacon. The pasta can be topped with ricotta cheese and Parmesan.

Pork and apples are in the crockpot (I'm loving my crockpot this winter) and I'm thinking of serving mashed sweet potatoes and green beans.

Crepes for dessert in honour of pancake day.

Broiled salmon, asparagus, tossed salad, mashed potatoes.

All followed by marble cake, in honor of Michelangelo's 539th birthday.

Had Pei Wei and am currently baking a coconut cream cake with chocolate ganache frosting and toasted coconut for a beach themed work party tomorrow.
