You know what that means -- now I have to figure out what to make.
So my guidelines are:
- No cilantro
- No avocado
- Little or no rice
I don't eat meat, but I have no problem splitting up a dish and cooking one part with meat and another without, as long as the part without feels like a real meal and not "hey, here's a hamburger bun and some condiments".
I'm thinking something along the lines of these (along with salads):
- pizza (let everyone pick their own toppings)
- autumn pot pie
(I'll probably also be making my traditional stuffed peppers at some point as the vegetarian alternative to the roast at Christmas dinner.)
It turns out a lot of the meals I cook depend on cilantro, so I'm having a hard time coming up with tried and true recipes.
Anyone have any other suggestions?
In other news, I got the little dog to stand on the treadmill today, but she didn't quite get the concept of walking forward, so she kept falling off the end when I turned it on. The big dog is still highly suspicious of the whole thing.
