Spicy Rice & Black-eyed Peas, New Farmers Market, Etc.
Posted Oct 01 2008 9:05pm
I recently made Spicy Rice & Black-eyed Peas from the fatfree vegan recipe index, which I highly recommend. I don’t eat black-eyed peas enough and they are so good!
Last week a new Wednesday farmers market opened. It’s within walking distance of my son’s apartment (that he’s moving out of in 2 weeks), and although it’s small, I got the first tomatoes of the season, some purple asparagus, and some squash. My son bought new potatoes and blackberries.
Here’s some quick dinners I’ve fixed recently. Nothing fancy, just light, quick, and tasty.
Leftover roasted squash with leftover jasmine rice and chickpeas.
Fresh & frozen veggie stirfry.
A pretty salad with lots of arugula.
Broccoli with leftover crepe sauce and salad with wakame and oranges.
Indian spiced mixed veggies.
Roasted purple asparagus, green beans, red pepper, and squash.
Tomorrow we are planning an outing to an Indian Fair, and then a pizza dinner at Casa de Luz, our delicious macrobiotic restaurant. Take a peek at the website if you have time. It's a beautiful campus. Hopefully the weather and my camera will cooperate!
Happy Mother’s Day to all who are moms, and if you are not, then Happy Mother’s Day to your moms! My mom is the kindest, most generous, and most beautiful person in the world, and I am so lucky to have her as a mom and a friend.
