This is my second week of macrobiotic eating and I’m loving it so far.  My secret cupid sent me the most amazing gift (The Asian Vegan Kitchen) so I used that for most of my menu planning this week.  Thanks again Olga!

This was my dinner tonight (Bobby got Domino’s takeout) –


This was breakfast –


Bobby had cheesy grits (on the left; 1 serving grits, 1/4 cup cheese mixed in, plus cheese on top).  (On the right) I had 3/4 cup oat bran with cinnamon and 1 tablespoon of peanut butter mixed in while cooking.  I think I like keeping the peanut butter on the spoon though; I couldn’t taste it much.

    I always love your food pictures! I’m getting a lot of great ideas for when I quit being a poor college student.

    Mmm, kabocha fries. We had regular old potato fries (baked in the oven from scratch) tonight… but I’ll have to try the kabocha fries/chips. The masoor ki dal and Korean noodles also sound delicious. I’ll look for that cookbook you mentioned, as well!

    That food looks really good. I’ve never had cheese grits though, I may try that one day.

    Reading your menu resparked my interest in learning to cook some Indian dishes. Your menu sounds delicious.
