Hello again readers! This November has been a busy month. There has been travel, and adventures, and yarn, but very little time at home. To center myself tonight, I dove into my other craft: cooking. I don’t often post about cooking, but I cook dinner most nights, and often indulge my proclivity for baked goods by baking my own.
Today was cold and bright, a quintessential early winter day, so I came home and settled in to make some comfort food. First came lentils and rice with mustard-herb butter (you don’t need the salmon, although it is delicious) for weekday lunches. Then, for dinner, garlic pasta because I love dairy and garlic and carbs and combining all of those things together results in one of the few foods I willingly, even eagerly, eat myself sick on.
(N.B. Garlic pasta is not good for work lunches unless you want to scare vampires and all your coworkers out of the office)
Last, because I had some old milk and I hate wasting food in general but animal products in particular, a batch of basic quick bread with nutmeg and lime zest.
Now that the leftovers are packed away, the breads are cooling, and a small mountain of dishes has been washed, I think I can go on with my week.
