I’m obviously way behind in posting pictures and recipes. And I want to write about the two church services offered today. Neither of which I was able to attend. And I want to complain about something. But the services and complaining will have to wait for another post. For now, here’s some yummy Lenten food (warning: some of these photos may depict non-Lenten items, for instance, meat I have served to my family while I eat the Lenten part of the meal).
this was lunch the other day. julienned (I used a mandoline) carrots, beets, zucchini, yellow squash and onion, mixed with hummous and topped with alfalfa sprouts, spread onto a slab of focaccia. This is the stuff baby! BTW, today, I julienned the same veggies, plus cukes and lettuce, and mixed it with half a mashed avocado. And spread it onto an olive roll. Mmmmmmmmmmm.
this is tonight’s dinner. the thing at the bottom is tandoori chicken. then to the left is a rice cake. basically riz b’sha’rii pan-fried like a pancake. The veggies are onion and garlic fried with cumin, cayenne and mustard seed, then baked potato chunks, squash and zucchini are added and when almost done, cherry tomatoes cut in half are added with a little water to steam it all. sauteed snow peas are in the middle. it was very good.
This is tempura I ate when Peter took me to dinner the night of the Feast of Annunciation. Fish is permitted that evening, so we went out for some sushi. I’m unclear about whether or not you get to eat fish if you don’t make it to church. Clearly, I went ahead and ate fish, despite my ambivalence.
As you can clearly see, I have been eating well!
