thursday's "charming" dinner

last night i made yet another recipe from garden of vegan. this time it was "charming fennel roasted vegetables", on pg. 119 for those following along at home. i also made breaded tofu, which came from my head not the cookbook. the dinner was absolutely, gold star, A+!

i'm loving this cookbook...everything is so easy to make because the recipes use just a few ingredients. (perfect for me because i'm a super lazy cook.)


thanks for the tips about blocking acrylic. i think i might give it a go. i've never blocked anything before (i guess i'm a lazy knitter too???) but i feel i should at least try with this project. the spot where stockinette meets garter is doing some mad curling and i'm not so happy with that. pictures to follow...promise!

oh that looks really good, though i'm usually a bit wary of fennel. though sometimes its cool. i should try it again, it's been awhile. and i'm curiuos how the acrylic blocks out cause i haven't event thought of it, let alone tried!

i decided i have to return my world vegetarian book today (SOB!) cause it's starting to fall apart and i don't want to be charged for it. Maybe I should switch over to your GOV project?? gosh i'll REALLY miss this book, though!

I need to get that book! I'd actually been thinking about it, but I'm always hesitant to buy cookbooks without pictures! So you've given me a little preview - thanks!
