What's for Dinner, Thurs., May 13, 2021

Vegetarian for me tonight. I got the recipes from the Washington Post. They have a newsletter called "Plant Power," which has menus and recipes for vegetarian food.


Mediterranean Cauliflower Platter
This bountiful platter has something for everyone, with golden turmeric cauliflower, an herb-laden quinoa salad and pita wedges for scooping up all the fixin’s.


Except I'm grating my turmeric. Using the real thing.

On the side will be green olives; I love cauliflower with green olives. Good combo.

Dessert: raspberry sorbet.

1. Grilled Indian chicken

Sort of a Tandoori chicken on the grill. The marinade is a mixture of Indian curry, cumin and spices that the Landlady(!) keeps in abundance.

On the side, chana masala - chickpeas in a spicy tomatoey sauce with peppers, coriander and ginger.

Basmati rice. Small green salad. Raita. Grilled pita bread.

3. spaghetti & meatballs

The meatballs came in our "Farm to Families" box. I have no idea if they're any good or not. There are a lot of them. Put a lot of them in the freezer.

Side salad


dessert: homemade apple crumble with vanilla ice cream

5. I just had my first pint of strawberries

over the last few days. They were perfectly ripened and I used them on cereal and on shortcakes for dessert.

Heavenly. Nothing like stawberries and whipped cream. I love the shortcakes, too.

Looking forward to more!
