Daily Gratitude

Thanks to you and all the anchors in my life – ballet class, synagogue, making food in the kitchen (to name a few). And yours?

    My family human and furry ones, cooking, traveling, and day dreaming.

    My friends, my Meatless Monday crew, cooking (especially for others), Mr. Henning the Wonder Cat, meditation, and morning pages.

      Meatless Monday crew?

      • Petra says:

        Though an omnivore, I attend a monthly local Meatless Monday potluck, looking forward to it each month. I’ve met some wonderful people there. We regulars are a small group, but we’ve gotten to know each other more intimately. I relish the gathering and the conversation and the company.

        • wendy says:

          What’s your top meatless recipe, these days?

          • Petra says:

            Cherry-sage bread was a hit at the December potluck. In terms of an entree, I made a wonderful heirloom bean and potato cassoulet from Fine Cooking magazine that I served at a luncheon for some mostly vegetarian friends. It was a lot of work and I swore I’d never make it again. Until I tried it. Definitely a weekend project!

          • wendy says:

            I’ll look up the recipe. A recommendation from you carries a lot of weight!

    My cat, my imperfect produce box, and girlfriends to travel with.

    I found the 4-qt Dutch oven was just a bit too small, so I cut back on the beans and the potatoes a little bit. I skipped the jalapenos and the parsley.

    • wendy says:

      Thanks for the recipe. It looks delicious (though I’m bit on the fence about kale). Is there a reason you skipped the jalapenos and parsely?

      • Petra says:

        Didn’t have the jalapenos (and didn’t want to buy them just for the recipes). Had the parsley but just forgot it. No other reason!
