Bookish Matters

The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid.

Food Friday—Menu

Here are some of the things I'll be making this week.

Tofu benedict
Seitan stew
Kale tacos

The usual snacks: fruit, veggies, trail mix, smoothies

And perhaps more appetizers like what I made with my gentleman friend last night—heirloom tomatoes, green apple slices, crackers, peppadew cocktail sauce, chevre, shrimp:

I've decided to try one new recipe a week (preferably from a cookbook on my shelf rather than the internet), and make one favorite recipe a week. I can get so caught up experimenting in the kitchen I forget about established recipes. Vegan hollandaise sauce and seitan stew are new recipes I'm trying (and depending on whether or not I'm in Moscow next week, I might even try homemade English muffins); kale tacos are an old stand-by. But I'm still experimenting: The picante is a dish I've gotten multiple times at Sangria, a restaurant here in Moscow. I'm going to try making it at home. It's tofu, potatoes, broccoli, green beans, and cilantro in a garlic serrano sauce with rice. And for dessert I'm going to try making chocolate pudding sweetened with agave.
