There is good vegan chorizo.
Avocado is good.
This should be good.
Thanks to chx who somehow came up with it for his scaling chapter.
Fairly inspired meal, for no planning, and the inspiration being, too much cauliflower:
white rice, cooked with some garam masala and such.
small white beans added in with the rice after it was cooked
two carrots, one very small onion, one head broccoli, one half of a huge head cauliflower, one small yellow squash, one zucchini.
cooked in the (phoenix-like risen from the ashes?) wok in olive oil, with salt, turmeric, paprika, curry powder, and more turmeric, and a little soy sauce, touch of sesame oil.
Chopped ahead of time and cooked pretty quickly.
Spaghetti rigati, al dente
1 Onion, chopped
2 heads Brocolli, sliced for the stems and long divided florets for the rest
Pureed/ground/extremely finely chopped carrot (a failed attempt at juicing carrots, rescued by this recipe)
Fresh jalepeño and that small long skinny orange pepper.
Can of navy beans (used Goya easy-open 15 ounce).
Stems go in first, at the same time as the onions, in a wok in a little bit of olive oil.
Add some salt. Some celery seed. A little poultry seasoning (coriander, mostly).
Start the pasta.
Tomatoes, red onions, cut into thick slivers. Olive oil, garlic salt, pepper, herbs de provence. Roast @ 300 for 90min; you will taste LOVE.
K liked very much.
tofu, firm, de-sogged, crumbled
yellow squash, zucchini
lots of oil
Then the kicker:
hot peppers of various kinds
raw pumpkin seeds
sweet potato (raw)
served with rice
My take on these instructions: http://vegetarian.about.com/od/veganmuffinrecipes/r/bananamuffins.htm
* 3 + .5 + .4 overripe bananas
* remains of vegan smart balance, close to 1/4 cup, and some canola oil
* 1 cup sugar. A little confectioners sugar thrown in.
* 2 cups flour, a little extra
* 1 tsp salt, approximately, shaken in
* 1 heaping teaspoon baking soda
* some walnuts (already out of shell), crushed by hand, and some pecan pieces
Pre-heat toaster oven to 360 degrees.
For Saint Patrick's day, and to celebrate the book deal becoming official:
Went down Route 9 and found a parking space just off Stuart? street (or the one after it) in the theater district.
A beer at Jacob and something's and then i remembered i had to get my developer talk in for DrupalCon San Francisco and i went back to the car to do that.
Andrew hit some other places, found me back at the car (cell phone had gone silent mode somehow) and after i finally posted, we went off again, to find every place shutting down at half past 11!
Cooked a late breakfast for Shreya and our hosts, Ben and Chris.

olive pomice oil, extra virgin olive oil, sunflower oil
table salt, very generous

Veronica was over, she has appointed herself my office manager. We walked Zelda and CJ and Veronica pulled up wildflowers to plant at home.
I also mailed a check for Cathy to work on securing the PWGD name, and a big flat rate box of garden dirt to Mary ($10.35 for some 25 pounds... maybe this gets back at them for being so slow with the hummos i mailed last year...)
Cooked for myself and instead of saving some or all to maybe eat with Anjali, or Veronica, or anyone tomorrow, I stuffed myself tonight.
