New recipes for the New year

Posted Jan 06 2011 1:11pm
In the spirit of the New Year, I tackled some new recipes this week. You know how my family loves that, right? I attempted Chicken Paprikash which I had never made before. I also realized while eating it, I had never even eaten it before. So I had to ask Brian how it was. He said it was good, but not great. I assume that's because I used regular paprika and not Hungarian paprika. Duh. My bad. But all in all it was pretty good. Here are the pix from that dish.

And last night I attempted something I've been wanting to try for quite some time, the vegetarian equivalent of meatloaf. I made Angela's Ultimate Vegan Lentil Walnut Loaf . I really liked it.
Others made comments such as: 'I don't like nuts in my food', 'This sauce on top is too spicy', 'This sauce on top is too sweet', 'Are there nuts in this? You know I don't like nuts'. So I guess it went over like a lead balloon. BUT I liked it and since they all still like their meatloaf, I now have something for me when they have theirs. 
Every year for D's birthday I make his favorite meal, meatloaf, mashed potatoes, green beans & corn. I make the meatloaf in the shape of his age. I've been doing it for years. I don't think my loaf will number shaped though.
Next time I will double this recipe (even though it made 2 loaves) for the freezer. There are a lot of steps! I also will process the walnuts instead of just chopping them, so they are a bit finer & I didn't add raisins, just a little extra grated apple. I also just winged it on the seasonings as usual and made my own sauce for the top (V8 juice, BBQ sauce, balsamic vinegar). 
onions, carrots, apple, celery flax egg I have no parchment so I used foil to line I also couldn't find my other glass loaf pan, so I used the foil disposable kind

I thought about making a vegetable for the side and realized this thing is chock full of vegetable goodness! Of course you can never have too many, I think. If you're feeling adventurous, try it-I think you'll like it! I see a vegan loaf sandwich in my future!
