I just made Isa's glam chowder that she posted on the blog with a video for dinner tonight. Can we talk about about crazy good it is? It's one of the last things I ever would have thought I'd like, but it is SO GOOD. I'm kind of full but I'm going to try for one more bowl because I just don't want to be finished yet.

I made it yesterday, had it for dinner last night, lunch today and dinner again tonight. It's amazing! It's the best homemade soup I've ever made. It's perfect for fall/winter.

I can't wait to make the glam chowder either!

Tonight we had coconut-chickpea curry over sweet potatoes and rice. Delicious. It's the only way I can get my partner to eat and enjoy spinach and chickpeas.

bodhi, can I have the recipe? We have a good curry recipe but I would love another! Sounds very similar.

I marinaded wee tofu triangles in a market-bought Filipino pineapple-chilli garlicky sauce and baked it. It was so good that we could have easily been happy eating it alone, but I sucked it up and made a salad with radishes and a tahini dressing. Granola for a later dessert! Delicious and wonderful to only spend a minute in the kitchen today.

I don't know if this is the one bodhi was talking about, but I make this one that was posted on the kitchn pretty often - http://www.thekitchn.com/recipe-braised ... mon-164551

It's so good! Sometimes I've subbed the greens for whatever I have on hand - kale, collards, whatever, and it always comes out amazingly. Don't leave out the lemon, and really try for the sun dried tomatoes if you can! They totally make the dish. And it's amazing over a roasted sweet potato. As much as I love sweet potatoes, the first time I made it I was a little skeptical about not having it with rice, so I made both to have options. Turns out, I vastly prefer it over the potato & have never made it with rice again.

Typing this out and thinking about this recipe has totally changed my plans for dinner - I was going to make something else tonight, but I have everything on hand for this!

That's where I got the original recipe! I modified it quite a bit, but it's definitely good either way. I added a diced potato (1/4" dice) when everything starts simmering, skip the sun-dried tomatoes (don't like/don't have), add 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp ground coriander, and serve with both rice and sweet potatoes (which bulks up the meal a bit so there are extra leftovers, and also I have a sweet potato hater in the house). Super delicious.

ETA: I definitely agree with heatherkelly that the sweet potato is so good with it. Don't skip it if you can help it. The curry is lovely with rice, but the sweetness of the sweet potato makes it super delicious.

Yay for new ravioli maker Happy Phantom! Your meal sounds lovely.

I made fried green tomatoes tonight because it was time to pick everything in the garden with a frost predicted. I was so looking forward to them, but they didn't turn out great. They got browned very quickly, so I didn't cook them very long, and as a result the tomatoes didn't soften much. What was up with that? I've made good FGT's in the past. Anyway, at least the V'con smokey tempeh was good as always, as was the kale.

French lentil soup and a quesadilla. I wasn't going for international night. I was just too cold to eat the cold salad I had planned on, and had some lentils, leeks, and jalapenos that needed using up. The soup and quesadilla were surprisingly nice together.

Mmm, I made a green curry with chanterelles, leeks, potatoes, bok choy, carrots, lime, and all the good Thai stuff (homemade curry paste, ginger, lemongrass, lime juice, cilantro, scallions) and sticky rice. And also stir fried mixed greens because we haven't really been eating greens even though we have heaps of them.

I'm letting my husband cook so we will no doubt have some weird concoction involving potatoes and tempeh and a jarred sauce. Sometimes he succeeds though, so I'm staying optimistic.

We went out last night. I started with a cup of chili and then had a giant bowl of miso soup with long beans, spinach, and seaweed dumplings.
