This & That

So, apparently my last post has disappeared into the ether. There is a draft version in my inbox that is about a quarter of the size of the post I actually wrote, and the comments are still recorded, just no post. Disheartening.

On a more positive note, here are two things I am proud of lately, and links to two recipes we really enjoyed.

An herb garden!  Here you can see, clockwise from top left, thyme, oregano, cilantro (including both plant and seed), strawberry, rosemary, spearmint, parsley & chives, and marjoram. Not shown here are a couple of little cups with basil seeds.  I had a helper, with the shopping, planting and watering.  Can you guess which of the plants he picked out? (The marjoram was my favourite.)

And here is something a little less exciting, but awesome nonetheless – look at the grill marks on this tofu!  I finally got my grill pan seasoned enough so that my lovely tofu doesn’t get ripped up and burned, and instead looks like this work of art:

Also as promised, links to two recipes we enjoyed lately – Glam Chowder from the PPK blog and Peanut Butter-Banana Bran Muffins from Bryanna Clark Grogan’s blog.  The chowder was so warm and creamy and tasty on one of our recent crappy dark and rainy nights, and the muffins were a perfect sweet treat and healthful at the same time.  Sam gobbled the muffins up, and they are already gone – I didn’t even get a picture of one!
