Kid-free nights often mean thrown together whatever meals. When we were in New York a few years ago, I ate at a cart called The Halal Guys. Their whole menu consists of three options: a plate with rice, pita bread and meat, a plate with meat and pita bread, or a sandwich filled with their chicken, beef or lamb, or a combination of any of the three. The magic is in the white halal sauce that’s poured over the top, and the spicy red sauce. This was a half-assed vegetarian version.

We had Vincent here for most of the week. He requested palak paneer  one night, which I haven’t made in years. Recipe for you tomorrow.

Making limoncello leaves a lot of fresh squeezed lemon juice… the obvious thing to do was make lemon bars.

Carrot and pea biryani to go with the palak paneer. I like making indian food because of the vibrant colors just as much as spices.

We are all big fans of probiotic yogurt around here… Obviously.
