It's cold here. Last night it was 8 degrees. To keep warm, we have been eating lots of oven food and thick, hearty stews.
Indian food is always a good way to keep warm. This plate is super full because I eat a lot. At the front is dhal, made along the lines of Peter Singer's recipe. Red lentils, tomatoes, lots of spices, coconut cream and lemon juice make a great combination. I added a bit too much coconut cream and made it soupier than it should have been, but it was still yummy. To the right of the dhal is some eggplant bharta. Or at least, that's what I call it. It's actually just eggplant cooked for a long time with some oil and curry paste. It gets really soft and delicious. Both curries were served with some brown rice, and I put on some soy yogurt at the table. This was a very good meal.
Nacho keeps warm by cozying up with Andy's dirty laundry.
