Halfway to New Mexico


These little ACEOs are traveling to their new home. Actually, I was a bit sad to see them go, but more are on the way.

Mmmm...



This recipe is so easy and delicious! It's a regular on our menu year round!

Ingredients:

1 large potato, peeled and diced
1 small cauliflower, chopped
1 onion, chopped
1 tablespoon oil
1 garlic clove, crushed
1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
2 tablespoons curry powder
4 cups veggie stock
1 1/4 cups plain low-fat yogurt
s & p
fresh cilantro for garnish

1. Cook potato, cauliflower, and onion in oil and 3 tablespoons of water for about 10 minutes.
2. Add the garlic, ginger, and curry powder. Stir well and cook for a couple of minutes. Then add the veggie stock and season with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil and then simmer for about 20 minutes.
3. Puree in a food processor (we use an emulsion blender) and return to pan. Stir in the yogurt and garnish.

We add some plain rice, too. Since it was hot and humid outside, we served it with vinegared cukes and some cold fresh fruit. I also recommend clementine flavored Izze as a beverage! :)

Hello!


How are you? Some shots of home life...Notice the conspicuously placed soaps in the middle photo?..I made those Jane Austen inspired soaps the other day and decided to sneak them in. :) One of my most treasured things in the world is the hand-cut silhouette of Fritz that Nathan gave me.
