(This is what happens when the lab tech isn't sure what the doctor's order was so he/she just didn't run the most important test!!!!)
But all is good.
When I was in the hospital with my husband a few weeks ago, I saw this poster in the gift shop. Isn't it perfect?
So, no real cooking. However, I wanted to share a recipe I came across that I am looking forward to making. It just calls out to me for one of those cool autumn nights.
Kav, this one has your name on it too!
I'm going to link the video with the recipe - Healthy Eggplant Chickpea Stew
Supposedly this recipe is a staple of the Mediterranean Diet so we know that means it's good for us. Thing is, I think it looks delicious too.
And you get to use the slow cooker!
It starts out with roasted eggplant, tomatoes, sauteed onions, and chickpeas in the slow cooker.
You add rehydrated porcini mushrooms and the water they soaked in.
Finally, the rich flavor is derived from adding minced garlic, oregano, cinnamon stick and sage (the last two are removed before serving).
Check out the recipe and tell me if it doesn't look gorgeous for a fall night.
The video is step by step - not quite like Missy's in-person cooking class, but a nice addition.
It's been cool in my neck of the woods this week. It feels almost wrong to be having such glorious weather while so much of the world is suffering. But I shall take joy in the Lord's creation and appreciate the autumn glory.
But before I spend too much time swelling on autumn promises (which is a great lead-in for my current novella collection!), I wanted to share some pictures I took on my walks around my neighborhood this summer. I love the beautiful greenery in the city.
