Tuesday’s Trivia

Posted on: November 29, 2011

Howdy!

OK, I’m back and recovered from Thanksgiving. I made an Indian feast (worthy of many Recipe Friday posts)… it included:

Papads with tamarind chutney

Minted lamb patties (wow, these were so good)

Baked spicy chicken (almost tandoori-ish)

Homemade chai

Stir-fried red lentils

Garlic naan (storebought….)

Kheer

 

And we shared it with a friend who worked part of the day. Good stuff! The lamb dish will certainly be happening again… I’ll admit that it was my first time cooking lamb!

 

<i>Did you all have a great holiday weekend? Did you cook anything out of the ordinary?</i>

 

I’m prepping for another big holiday adventure, coming up here in a few weeks, but meanwhile, here’s a few fun holiday links:

 

1. Easy gifts for the holidays, or just fun things to share: holiday cake pops and candy apples.

 

2. The perfect Christmas gift for the cat.

 

3. This sweet minty Chex mix looks promising…. not healthy, but use a good quality white chocolate like Callebaut, and you’re set!

 

4. Make your house smell like the holidays! Boil a pot of water, add some orange peels and a few cinnamon sticks.

 

5. And to balance out the less-healthy eats above, here’s a good-looking recipe for curried sweet potato soup. It’s been soup weather for a while here, so why not make a big pot?

 

It’s December in a few days… can you believe it? I made a great red lentil and potato soup a few days ago, and I’ll share it with you all on Friday–big-time comfort food. Healthy, too!

 

Have a great rest of the week, everyone!
