But because we have guests in town for a few days and home-cooked meals run counter to current events (10th college reunion for the butterfly lady and her homies), I whipped up:
- A North Indian Muslim dish of beef with dark almond sauce
- A vegetarian takeoff on that dish using acorn squash instead of Bessie
- Sookhe aloo (I think that's Hindi for "yummy potatoes")
- Rice with saffron, cardamom and cinnamon
I think the squash dish worked better than the beef version, though I think that next time, I'd use some tofu as well. And I would not make both dishes simultaneously, which although interesting was also hectic.
