Turmeric and Mustard Seeds

Turmeric

Mustard Seeds

I’ve been doing a lot of Indian cooking lately, so I ordered bulk spices. A pound of mustard seeds costs only slightly more than a small jar of them, so it makes no sense to buy them in small quantities. Same with turmeric.

Falafel

Falafels with Brussels Sprouts and Basmati Rice

I made falafels from scratch, for the first time. I used chickpea flour, because that’s what I had on hand. And I didn’t have parsley, so I substituted cilantro. They were easy-peasy to make–no harder than making them from a mix. I’ll be making these frequently!

I had them with sauteed brussels sprouts and basmati rice with tamari.

A scrambled egg is not complete without spinach.

Veggie Soup

Veggie Soup

I made a curried vegetable soup in the Instant Pot. The chopped spinach was tossed in at the end, after I released pressure. Then I set the lid back on for a couple of minutes, to let the spinach wilt. Perfection!

I love them quartered, then sauteed in olive oil, with lemon.

Quartered, sauteed in olive oil, and drizzled with lemon juice. Bliss.

This is what happens when your dog goes on a potty strike. What should have been a 45 minute walk this morning turned into a two hour walk. Brat. I’m more pig-headed than he is, though, so I won.

Cashews

And now it’s time for a bedtime snack. I love cashews. I would sit and eat them all, so I keep a measuring cup in the container.

Eggs!

Eggs!

This little alien was on sale, so I couldn’t resist. I wouldn’t normally waste money on a unitasker, but it shuts automatically, so it will let me cook hard-boiled eggs while I’m in the shower. It also allegedly poaches eggs and makes omelets. And it’s really freaking cute!
