Now that our kitchen is mostly assembled again, I decided to make some more new recipes tonight. I ended up deciding on two recipes from The Voluptuous Vegan. I chose recipes that only required what we had on hand, since it was cold and snowy, and I didn’t feel like going to the store. I did make a couple substitutions. The french lentil soup called for swiss chard, but I used bok choy, since we had a little bit that needed to be used. I then served the soup with some baguette that was a couple days old. Great for dipping. The red cabbage called for apple juice. Instead I used a bit of apple cider vinegar and some sliced fresh apples which were not looking too great anymore. Clare and I were very happy with the results. These recipes might be making second appearances!

  6. Hmm – Good post! But today i would like to remember ten years ago. 9/11 – where were you in the event it happened? I was on the job, and also a co-worker came rushing in and told what went down… I couldn’t believe it and we all encountered the conference room and gathered round the TV and watched news all day until the late evening. Very little else was in the news for weeks thereafter. Let’s just hope this never happens again.
