So I made that No Knead Whole Wheat Bread I was talking about and it tastes really good - just don't look at it. Ever! I think next time we're going to have to do some kind of preheated, oven door open kind of situation in order for it to rise. Cuz it's just too dang cold.
Onto the food photos! Keep an eye out for the very embarrassingly low-profile bread.
Butter Lettuce and Arugula Salad with Sungold Cherry TomatoesWith a lemony oregano-y caper-y viniagrette.
OMG-Roasted Vegetables with Garlic (No-Knead) ToastThe veggies in question were parsnips, carrots, cauliflower, onions and garlic. With the magically transforming powers of olive oil and salt and pepper.

Hot Sauce Glazed Tempeh, Roasted Rice & Leeks, Corn on the CobYes, it's the hot sauce glazed tempeh made with something labeled "hot sauce." It is good. The roasted rice and leeks were crazy good, too! That was out of the Lorna Sass book Whole Grains Every Day, Every Way. It's just brown rice roasted at 400F for about 8 minutes then combined with sauteed leeks, thyme, salt and boiling water and baked for 35 minutes (let stand for 10 minutes). Really good! The roasting/toasting of the rice makes it crazy buttery and popcorn-like. Definitely recommend it!
Ok off to a parent ed class related to our co-op preschool called Rituals. I hope no animals are sacrificed.
