Sunday Dinner

Today for dinner I made a spiced brown rice, which had spices like cardamom, cloves, peppercorns and safflower in it. The sautéed Tofu dish was spiced with Bragg's Amino Liquid, hot chili sauce, nutritional yeast and had steamed broccoli, sautéed onions and fresh pressed garlic mixed into it. Along side I steamed artichokes.

What to cook today?

Today we have our oldest son with his girlfriend over for dinner. Besides looking forward to spending time with them I am excited about eating a nice meal. Sitting at the dinner table is something we enjoy the most. Talking, eating and sitting and talking some more is such a joy and makes us feel connected to each other. And when the food is delicious, even the better.
First I will serve a mixed salad with a balsamic olive oil dressing. A side note to mixed salad: I am a bit obsessed with vegetables. My mixed salads have ten different vegetables in it.

Market-fresh Gourmet Dinner

grilled mushrooms, fried new potatoes, radishes and cooked radish greens
strawberries mixed with lemon juice and creme fraîche

This dinner was so good and satisfying: Roasted new potatoes with garlic, baked mushroom medley with rosemary and garlic, radishes halved, topped with a hint of butter and Himalayan pink salt, steamed radish greens with lemon juice, steamed corn coated with olive oil, and avocado halves with lemon juice.

And for dessert: fresh strawberries quartered mixed with lemon juice, creme fraîche and home made vanilla sugar.
