Where were we? Thursday, I had a salad, yup, nothing exciting here. Friday, we had dal, rice and finished off all the chutney except the green mango.
Saturday we ate out, I think it's funny that we have probably eaten out more in the last two weeks than we normally do. Anyway, we ended up at Sanbornes at La Fiesta Americana, Husband had caneloni stuffed with spinach and I had chile relleno. It was a thoroughly mediocre meal. Husband's said that the sauce on the caneloni was tomato thickened with cornstarch, it looked like tomato soup. His steamed vegetables were excellent though. My chile relleno was supposed to be stuffed mozzarella, it was stuffed with manchego. It was not good, it wasn't exactly bad, it looked nice but I have had much better chile rellenos. We both felt uncomfortable after eating, sluggish. I should have just had a salad.
Today, I was planning on making Syrian white beans but I seem to be out of white beans. We had omelettes for breakfast instead of our usual oatmeal so I am not feeling too anxious about lunch.
Right now I have dried habas (fava beans) and garbanzos quick soaking. I am going to make some hummus and a similar bean puree out of the habas. Half the of the beans are also going to get dry roasted for snacks. I need to have something to eat when we are out and about and I start to get hungry.
What is working well for me is having things like the chutneys and bean purees already made and waiting in the refrigerator. I can make a main dish or a side dish but most of the other stuff is ready. I have olives, chile en escabeche, artichoke hearts also so we can have a easy lunch, along with some pita bread.
I think I may have some bell peppers left so I can make some marinated bells to add to the plate.
