A commenter recently said she wants to eat more veggies after seeing what I’m cooking. I won’t lie — I’m enough of a health dork to consider that a great compliment. Last night’s community dinner round cuatro was a colorful array of some of my favorites. I was trying to clean up a bunch of Asian noodle and wrap supplies I had hanging around the pantry, but ended up spending a small fortune anyway for the extras.
Roasted acorn squash veggie spring rolls. Similar recipe here.
Edamame, with a pinch of salt.
A giant salad with whatever veggie was on sale at the market.
And sesame noodles, to which I added grilled chicken and forgot the sesame. Whoops.
A new white wine I’d never heard of before, which we enjoyed with dessert: lime sorbet topped with frozen mangoes. The reviews were positive. Then again, after a belly full of carbs and sugar, everyone is usually pretty jolly. We were all enjoying ourselves enough to talk through the first episode of LOST. You know the conversation is good when I prefer the company to Jack. Got to catch up with him today. It’s the only TV shows these days that I follow and I am so thankful ABC puts the back episodes on their website.
