partying in Las Vegas
hiking the Grand Canyon
and meeting Say Anything.
This is the first dinner I cooked in ages and let me tell you it feels good to be back in front of the stove.
I got this recipe from Real Simple. The changes I made were just omissions of ingredients I didn't have on hand: no bell pepper, turmeric, or cilantro.
The carrots, onions, garlic, spices and floating cinnamon stick stew away in some vegetable stock.
Then in goes the eggplant, zucchini, and raisins. I was hesitant about the raisins going into my dinner, but I was glad they joined the party.
For the grand finale I plopped it on some garlic pine nut couscous. Ta-da!
