Seitan and veggie stir fry. Keep it very simple but it was good.

Last night I threw together a sambar in the IP, using the small eggplant, the few okra, and the bok choy greens, from the garden. I added about 1/3 c rex quinoa to the toor dal, to add some nutrition, and thicken it even more. I used the end of my sambar masala, so I'll have to make another batch soon.

Since we had a nibble feast last night, I still had leftovers from the end of last week. After his side salad, Himself finished up the last pork chop with apples and shallots, and cleaned up the sides to boot. Then there was the rotisserie chicken. Since I enjoyed my big dinner salad so much the other day, I made another for my supper today.

Don't you have those meals delivered to you anymore, Addie? I would think that, now more than ever, elder services would make sure you continued on that program.

DD worked late last night. When she got home she made butter chicken and rice. First time Iíve had it. Was pretty good. Hot and spicy but didnít give me heartburn.

I picked up the seasoning packet at food store. Just cook chicken and onions. Add packet tomato sauce simmer, add cream simmer. Serve over rice. Quick easy meal. Only DD and I would eat this. The other two in the house are whimpys. LOL

Iíll buy it again.

I also started a batch of pickles.

Hub picked up two packages of the large Kirby cucumber/pickles - 8 pickles. I prepped 4 quart jars. I had to cut the cukes in half to fit. So 2 to the jar - 1 whole and 1 cut in half in each jar.

One of our Indian neighbors taught me how to make butter chicken. It's out of this world! One of my favorite recipes.

Friday, for our monthly neighborhood cocktail party and potluck, I made Turkish kofte (meatballs) served over hummus with grilled flatbread. So last night, I used the leftovers to make basically the same thing, topped with a little chopped tomato and fresh parsley, along with salads. I toasted the leftover bread and drizzled it with olive oil and za'atar. Was quite good.
