|Skiing with Rich in Feb|
|This is what the hill normally looks like in April or May, not February!|
But even in a comfortable winter, I love comfort foods. Winter is the best time to indulge in soups and stews. I didn't get this when I was little, and would beg my mom to make lasagna and meatloaf in July.
Cookbook Challenge 25: South Indian Lentils & Vegetables from The Complete Book of Indian Cooking by Shehzad Husain and Rafi Fernandez
That is a bit of a mouthful. This is a big book which I brought home from India with me in 1997 as a gift for my mom. I have conveniently forgotten how heavy my backpack was, but I'm sure if this was my idea of a good souvenir, it was a seriously heavy bag!
After owning it for awhile & not using it, my mom gave it to me and occasionally asks me to make Indian food. I have not been very adventurous, but the book actually has lots of great looking recipes.
The one I chose was hardy and yummy and easy to make. Also, Finley liked it, which is a huge score these days. It's one of those kitchen sink kind of meals where you can throw in whichever veggies you happen to have on hand.
