Well, Well, Well, Here I am guys!! Was kinda bummed out today because I figured I would still be in this “no appetitie, no ideas” slump, but I believe I have made a full recovery!! To prove it, I’ve got a rather strange meal to tell you about today. When looking at this dish, my roommate (shout out to Sarah Fahmy) and I were struggling to find a name for it. When I explained that the dish had hints of Indian, Asian and Greek culture the first thing she said was diversity on a plate, so we’re going with it! It’s been one of those days or few days, where I really need to clean out my fridge and go on my weekly Trader’s trip. Plus my cauliflower was on its last leg so I had to do something about that. I am hoping that this new found foodspiration is long lasting and I will be able to get back on the grind of posting every Tuesday and Thursday again… (fingers crossed!!)
