Gumbo with Shrimp, Andouille, and Chicken. The okra was my last bag of home grown from the folks. I put a bit too much rice in our bowls, but that's a good excuse to go back to the gumbo pot for more, of course.
King cake! I love the King Arthur sparkle sugars. I also used their artisan seed mix on the bread that you can see on the side of the bowl above. I got the baby, so I guess I'll be the one baking cakes again next year. I hope Susan and Ron enjoyed theirs.
Italian Lentils with Morningstar Farms Italian "Sausage" This was quite good--even if we did have to wait in line forever at Kroger because they didn't know where to look for the code for the fresh fennel.
Polenta Casserole with Greens and Butternut Squash: A real winner. What wouldn't be good about a big cheesy layer of grits studded with pieces of sun-dried tomatoies, spicy mustard/collard/turnip greens in the middle, and a layer of roasted butternut squash puree with yet more cheese? Even better? 1/6 of this (which was a healthy slice) was under 300 calories. Crazy!
Pistachio-Lemon Pesto with Spinach and Whole Grain Pasta: Easy and quite yummy.
This is the first go out of The Moosewood Cookbook for Health. We liked it, but will probably opt for marinating the tofu and adding some heat to the greens. We had seitanic nuggets last night and I think the hot and spicy sauce I made for dipping (Sambal and orange marmalade) would be a good addition to the sauce or brushed on right before broiling the tofu.
