I've gotten rid of nearly all my magazine subscriptions. We used to hear monthly (bi-monthly?) from several throughout the year. I still love Saveur and Lucky Peach, National Geographic still has a warm place in Matt's heart (my parents generously offer it to him every year and he gladly takes it), and I really do enjoy a good In Style. However, while trying to rid myself of clutter in our abode, I've unsubscribed to nearly every periodical that comes through our door... All except for one: Vegetarian Times. I don't know what it is about this publication, but I suppose it's because I love the articles, it's fairly cheap, and I don't feel bad keeping it around because I actually read it on time!
A while ago, Carol and I were looking for something to make. It needed to be vegetarian (me) and cheesy (her), and it had to be fairly fast. Well, the recipe we found didn't put dinner on the table instantaneously, but we were pleased with what we found in the back of a small, pillowy-covered book, aptly named "Vegetarian Recipes." No mystery with that one!
So you'll imagine my surprise to see it fully rehashed in Vegetarian Times in the April / May 2014 issues. Not that I'm complaining! I'm not sure who thought of it first, but I'm glad someone did. I've made it three times now, and it's not failed me yet. Even my wonderful, supportive Matt, happy to try a veggie recipe or two but largely carnivorous, gave them his seal of approval! So if you're having trouble finding one meal for everyone at the table (don't you hate making multiple dishes), this one might be worth a shot. All you need to do is look at this very candid shot of Matt after trying the first bite! Aren't candids the best? I think he was saying, "oh wow! That's actually really good!"
I'll take it!
I'll take it!
