Natn'l Glazed Doughnut Day ~ 1-12-21 ~ What's On Your Table?

We have this wonderful Doughnut shop in town,
who recently started a Food Truck!
The truck was parked not terribly far from
our house, so we've had our share already today

I've made the executive decision that our dinner will
be served much earlier than in the past ...

I made some Indian today, since I was making those dosa. I had a couple okra pickles on the side, instead of chutney.

Today, while making those dosa, I made a sambar in the IP, adding those extra butternut cubes I had at the end, and letting them sit 10 minutes or so, and adding the tarka at the end, for tempering.

I made Skillet Shrimp, a recipe from Southern Living magazine. It calls for scallions, but I was out. Surprised me, since I usually have them on hand. However, I had already decided to use shallots instead. I wasn't thrilled with the sauteed scallions in this dish anyway. We liked it better with the shallots. No scallion tops for garnishment, so I added extra parsley and dill.

Since Tuesdays are Lufa Farms, produce and other stuff, basket delivery day, I knew I wanted to make an easy supper. We had hot Italian sausages roasted over a bed of mostly root vegis. The non root vegis were a couple of celery stalks, two small, onions, quartered, and some garlic.

We had spaghetti and clam sauce. I was able to find a bit of parsley growing in the relics of our garden.

We had leftovers - chicken Scarpariello and posole verde, with fresh salads.
