Okay, so the kicker here was whatever we rolled, it had to be made into cubes w/a rice cube.
There were 3 different kinds of cubes: braised eggplant with oregano, lemon zest & garlic chive, and finally tamago with sesame seeds. Coconut curry as the "mortar". For dinner entertainment, Hellraiser IN SPACE.
The cubes were super fun to make, and they all turned out super tasty. The curry felt a little bit like a third wheel, but it was really good too & did pair well with the cubes.
For dessert... raspberry custard parfaits. I seem to have forgotten to take photos.
Decided that I'd start using marmite instead of bacon whenever I rolled it. So: marmite, apple & brie grilled cheese sandwiches. Creamed corn & carrots with brown rice. I just bought ice cream (bourbon banana, I think) instead of making it from scratch.
The sandwiches turned out pretty damned good, if I do say so.
Going with Mexican.
I wanted to make millet cakes! added shredded carrot, oregano & crushed mustard seeds to the millet. It did not turn into cakes. Sautéed mushrooms, black beans, olives & more oregano for the top. Added chopped tomatoes at the very end so they were just barely cooked, and topped it all off w/shredded cheddar cheese.
This was really good
Spiced cake with cinnamon cream cheese frosting. Going for a horchata feeling.
Went w/a sort of greek curry here. Made a basic curry, but used "regular" basil instead of Thai basil, and broiled tofu. Topped with feta. Apricot lassi for dessert.
It turned out surprisingly well, but I'd want to tweak the recipe if I made it again. I'd want to accentuate the "Greek" part of the curry, maybe tweaking the spices some. The lassi, while delicious, was way too thick! It needed more yogurt, and probably some milk or something to thin it out. I don't think I added any sugar, which was fine. There's enough in the fruit.
I think I forgot to add the chick peas to the curry the first night. Leftovers!
breaded fried soft-boiled eggs with cayenne pepper. Side of braised spinach with onions & sunflower seeds.
Oh my god, these eggs were delicious, but really hard to make. Peeling hard-boiled eggs is difficult enough, but when they're jiggly and about to burst? And once they were breaded they were still tricky to fry. But worth it.
