More like what wasn't for dinner tonight- I cleared out the fridge and the pantry- brown rice, roasted brussel sprouts and potatoes, spinach, and olives in a spicy spanish-y tomato sauce I made- topped with pumpkin seeds and avocado, stuffed into tortillas. I was worried with so much going on, but I liked it and my husband loved it. We even named it, so I guess it's an official recipe now.

What did you name it?

Trooser Toss, after my nickname/ alter ego Tex Troosers. (Hence my user name). My sister named it after I was complaining that I didn't know what to call it. If I ever wrote a cookbook, I would have to include an explanation of every recipe name. This might seem kind of weird to say, but one of the few things that make me sad about not wanting children is that I will never have anyone to pass down my crazy recipes and titles and stories about them to.

I am totally obsessed with the creamy avocado pasta from Oh She Glows. Partially because avocados were on sale so i had a bunch, but mostly because it if forking delicious. Today i made it with gnocchi, frozen peas, and baco bits.

From the Pantry Pot Pie from The Vegan Slow Cooker. Yes please to the comfort food.

ETA: This cookbook is so simple and has so much room for adjustments. . . It's basically just a guide on "how to do shiitake in a crockpot." I went with seitan as my protein and added some almond milk, because pot pie needs a creamy gravy. I can't waaaiiiittt to get home and eat!

I think I'm gonna make that gingery coconut stew that Isa posted on the blog yesterday. It sounds wicked, I've been dreaming about it all morning and I already have most of the ingredients. Just have to work out what the hell the English version of a rutabaga is!?? (Swede maybe?)

I made it and it was really REALLY great. I am excited to eat the leftovers for lunch (I halved the recipe).

What I would say though is that you must have magical carrots and swede in America that cook in 5 minutes! I knew when I read the recipe it would take more like 20/25 minutes after I added them.

Leftover pho broth with random things thrown in. It is too cold to eat non-soup.

I made us linner? at 4/5pm today since I worked through lunch: garlic toast using the last of the bread and spaghetti with red chiles, garlic & tahini kale. Very clean-out-the-fridge/pantry, which reminds me to ding the grocery spending thread...

I made pizza with Tofutti, a thick layer of onions, and Big Stick pepperoni. In case you were wondering if it is a good idea to put cream cheese on a pizza, the answer is yes. Yes it is.

Kale, white bean and tomato soup with loads of garlic. Absolutely going to hit regular rotation because it's easy and yum.

I had some Italian style tofu in the fridge so I breaded it in noochy panko and baked it and it was crispy and lovely. I was looking forward to the leftovers but my dad ate them all! So I guess he approved also.

I had it with mashed potato, broccoli and the silky chickpea gravy from AFR, which I'd not made before but it was ace.

Eden foods alphabet pasta was on huge clearance when I was randomly at Wal-Mart getting supplies for work, and I have SO MANY carrots to use up, so I have my husband making alphabet soup from the blog/IDI. I spent half an hour with him last night coaching him on how to tailor it to our tastes (blended fire roasted tomatoes instead of tomato sauce, extra spices, garlic, and onions, no celery, add an acid like lemon juice or red wine vinegar... and he was like, um why did you give me a recipe then? I replied "because it's Isa! Fool-proof amazingly delicious recipes even if you forget everything I told you!" and then we got into this silly argument about him thinking he's met Isa before when I'm 99.9% sure that didn't happen and dude, just make the soup!

Anyway, I have a beautiful bouille loaf of bread that I'm really excited to slice and dunk chunks into soup. Sometimes I crave kid food!

Lazy food: baking a spaghetti squash and roasting some broccoli with garlic. Will serve the squash with jarred tomato sauce and Trader Joe's meatless balls.

I still need to get over my fear of spaghetti squash.

Leftover soup! I made such a big pot the other night, and have been eating it like crazy.

Don't fear the spaghetti squash mooon! It is fun. You bake it in halves with the seeds removed, like you might a butternut or acorn squash. When it feel soft, about an hour later, take it out of the oven and remove the strands from the skin with a fork. Then you can mix it with maranara, pesto, garlic and olive oil, peanut sauce, red curry, or add it to a soup or put it on a plate and top it with a stir fry. Basically use it as you would cooked fine textured pasta or noodles. I didn't know that some people weren't raised eating spaghetti squash and was surprised when my spouse exclaimed in delight the first time I prepared a spaghetti squash for us.
