Right now: muscadine grapes, aka scuppernongs. Never had them before but bought them this afternoon for a treat, and damn they're good. Tart (but not too tart) skin - ok the skin's a bit tough, but maybe that's to balance out the tender sweet big ol' bag o' green pulp inside - & then 3-5 seeds to tease out and pittooie! into the trash can beside me. Lots of interesting flavour & texture contrasts for my mouth.

DAMN that sounds delicious.
and hello, thanks for explaining! that is VERY interesting! rad.
today: chicken caesar salad from el pollo loco. i know, i know, fast food....but the dressing has become a guilty pleasure of mine and my coworker's.
now: thinking about making some sort of chili.
Oct 2 2007, 09:14 PM
hellotampon & other vegans, check out this Vegan Zombie
Dinner: stew of ground lamb, kale, potatoes, lemon, tarragon, olive oil, over jasmine rice boiled with butter and shiitake mushrooms. Muscadine grapes for dessert. Also 2 sort-of shortbread cookies I made yesterday (I used buckwheat flour instead of wheat.) They turned out very crumbly and almost black, but I put them in the freezer and they hardened up enough to eat without dropping bits everywhere. Probably would be good for making Hallowe'en cookies because of the color, if people liked, or didn't mind, the strong kasha taste.

amendment on the "some sort of chili": i made a delicious black bean soup (thanks to "how to cook everything" thanks to pollystyrene!
) with yogurt and cilantro. i didn't have chili pepper so i used cayenne and forgot how SPICY it is, but my spiciness tolerance has increased exponentially since i moved to the southwest (well, so cal) so i could handle it a lot better than i thought. YUM!
Oct 3 2007, 02:01 PM
breakfast: black coffee everything bagel with "buttery spread" with nutritional yeast sprinkled on top
lunch: wrap with hummus, cucumbers, bean sprouts, and spring mix

Oct 8 2007, 06:35 PM
for dinner tonight I made:
spinach salad w/ tomato, cucumber, manouri cheese and tomato & tahini dressing
pasta w/ olive oil, thinly sliced fresh garlic, crushed red pepper, lemon juice, yellow grape tomatoes, and parmesan
zuchinni sauteed w/ fresh garlic & olive oil
my apartment smells so good and garlicky, I know I won't be having any vampire visits

Banana-spelt pancakes with cacao nibs thrown into the batter. Actual sweetened chocolate makes me break out, but I think these cacao nib things don't, so much. I enjoy their bitterness contrasted with the sweetness of the pancake.
