New study: Meat, smoking have strongest links to cancer incidence rates

Sorry no recipes today. After spending over 500 Mondays with you I am finally taking some time off.  Today we're celebrating the holiday with dinner at a local restaurant I've been dying to try which has been receiving raves about its new Meatless Monday menu; so won't be around for comments.

Leaving you with some Beatles rockers:

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    Having posole verde tonight. It's an all-day affair from start to finish. 1 pound of corn, 1 pound of tomatillos, 1 pound green pasilla peppers. And a bunch of other things.

  •  Red lentil dal tonight. (9+ / 0-)

    I have a complicated recipe requiring the toasting and grinding of spices, but I went to an Indian grocery this morning and bought a jar of mild curry paste and will try the lazy person's version tonight.  I have some small eggplants that I will roast and then I'll make some basmati rice.  

    The holidays were really tough on my dietary good intentions, but now I'm back on track.

      You will never want go back to using the commercial stuff again... although the Patak's curry pastes are not bad when you are still learning the basics of Indian.

      I keep homemade garam masala, sambar masala and chaat masala on hand all the time, as well as bulk spices. Last year I finally replaced my decrepit and tiny electric coffee grinder, which I used for spices, with a wonderful Indian made "Mixie" that cranks out perfect masalas as well as batters for dosa and appam.

        I even bought a dedicated coffee grinder just for spices.  But sometimes I am just plain lazy and don't want to to take the time for it.    I've never heard of a "Mixie," though.   Sounds like you are quite the expert, atana.  I have no clue how to make dosa or appam.

  •  We ate out today. (4+ / 0-)

    To celebrate the housemate getting her first raise in six years (ever) where she's working.  Went to a place that struck me as being sort of like a cross between a sports bar and a cheesecake factory type restaurant.  I'm assuming it's a chain, but I've never seen it anywhere before and I don't remember the name now.

    While I didn't order entirely meatless, the protein portion was edible, but the meatless parts were the star of the meal.  Billed as 'Hawaiian pineapple rice pilaf', it was sweet but spicy at the same time, and not overly glue-like.  Pineapple bits were throughout, along with more rustic larger (though still fairly small) pieces of onion that had been sauteed lightly, so they were still al dente, julienned peppers, definitely some soy sauce, and something else with a bit of zing I couldn't quite pin down.  Hints of citrus as well.  I'll have to see if I can locate the place's name and see if anyone has done a reverse-engineering of the dish somewhere on the web.

    I'm just having smoothies & salads for lunch this week, so I didn't have to cook.

    I'm thinking next week -- maybe the soba noodle thing from the Engine 2 book? I'm in a weight loss contest, I'm looking for light things.

    I made pizza Saturday and Sweetie made pasta Sunday and tonight I'm making a Northern African peanut soup with fire roasted tomatoes, coconut milk, butternut squash, onion, and berbere spices among other things. Sourdough sandwiches with Jarlsberg, caramelized onion, curly kale and Beverton hot and sweet mustard. Yum!

      •  I was riffing off 3 different recipes I have..... (1+ / 0-)
        Recommended by:

        I did not have sweet potato, but I had a nice butternut squash, so here it is.
        3 C stock, 15-19oz can coconut milk, 15 oz can fire roasted tomatoes, salt to taste, 3-4 smashed garlic cloves, bay leaf, start with 1 tsp berbere spice, squrit of Frank's hot sauce & tamari. Cook on low in a large saucepan or enameled dutch oven. Meanwhile, sliver 1/2 to 1 small yellow or spicy white onion. Cut a nice sized butternut squash in half. Then 1/2 in half. Peel and dice one piece in 1/2" dice, chunk the other piece. Place the squash and onion on a baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil. Bake at 425 for about 15 minutes and take out the onion and diced squash, turn down to 375 and roast until the squash starts to caramelize, take out and smash the chunks on the baking sheet and put in the soup. Keep at a slow simmer and, if you'd like the soup a little thicker, take the lid off, if thinner, add more stock. Adjust seasonings. Stir occasionally until done. Garnish with cilantro and peanuts if wanted. Great the next day and freezes well.

          Copied and filed for the future.

          I'll have to get some berbers spice, though.
