After a long afternoon of dutiful reading, the cooking began. Sydney was inspired by the tamarind flavor of our Thai dinner on Friday, so he combined about 30 recipes online into a curry recipe of his own (yes to the tamarind, veggies, and rice, no to the fish oil and other such undesirables). Plus we needed to make bread for packed lunches and dinners this week. Oh yes, and we wanted to make a sweet-potato-and-black-bean-burrito dish so that we’d have dinners to come home to this week. So the onions were sizzling, the compost pile was growing, and we emptied out half the jars in the fridge as we cooked.
Now, it’s about time we got back to that reading of ours . . .
