What’s cookin Tuesday 1/12/10

Didn’t really make anything exciting this week, but there was lots of soup since it’s been so cold.

I made butternut squash soup…mmmm, one of my faves. Fresh ginger is my secret ingredient.

I also made…well, it has no name. It was just what was lying around. Sauteed garlic, almond milk, and canelli beans pureed, then some tumeric and frozen veggies. Not my best creation. Not my worst.

Today I’m throwing together a stirfry with Morningstar Chik N Strips (fake chicken) the rest of my ginger root, onions, carrots, celerry, red pepper flakes, low sodium soy sauce, and yes, a bag of frozen veggies.

What about you? Did you cook anything interesting? Eat anything good?



  1. It was a medialuna day. Medialunas are small, bready, slightly sweet croissants. Heaven. I had three. In Buenos Aires, three is the magic number.

    For dinner I’m making a salad, which doesn’t sound exciting but, let me assure you, it is. I make awesome salads. Tonight it’ll include roast chicken, herbs, and garden tomatoes, and I’m going to toast onion bread for croutons.

    Last night I made pasta à la arrabiata (angry pasta), with garlic, fresh tomatoes, wine, and pepper flakes. Yum.

  2. I broiled tilapia filets last night – just lightly sprinkled with a mixture of bread crumbs, parmagian [sp?] cheese, basil, parsely and black pepper. Served them with brown rice and they were excellent. I love meals that are easy to make and cook fast.

  3. Kate — Three is my lucky number so I think you made a wise decision eating three medialuna (or is it medialunas?).

    Your salad and pasta both sound delish.

    Jennifer — I love tilapia! And I love the ease and speed of cooking fish. Jarred pesto works great on fish too (assuming you like basil and garlic).

  4. I love pesto [I even made my own once and and made pesto pizza – but the DH and kids do not. SIGH. Getting them to eat anything green at all is a challenge.
