The weather is turning colder so that means more soups and stews. It also means I’m trying a few new recipes this week.
The garden is putting out the last of the harvest. I’m excited about the variety, but sad that the food from the garden is coming to an end. I’m freezing the excess tomatoes and drying dill to use over the winter in addition to using up the last bits and pieces of vegetables in stir fry early on in the week.
Last week I finally made the dal nirvana! I substituted coconut milk for the cream. I’m sure it would have been amazing with the cream but sadly it wasn’t as rich as I would have wanted with the coconut milk. Also, I couldn’t make naan because it usually includes yogurt and my husband tries to really limit dairy. Sadly I think Indian food may be mostly out of the meal rotation 😦
