2. brown rice
5. mushroom cookies - slightly melted
This was a huge freakin' lunch. I ate it like 8 hours ago and I'm still full - all that rice I guess. Speaking of rice, I used some of that precooked frozen brown basmati rice from Trader Joe's. A seriously fabulous product by the way. Comes in a box of 3 packages, each package is about 2 servings. All you have to do is clip the corner and microwave on high for 3 seconds. I always have some of this on hand and so should you.
If you're interested in how I make ratatouille, and I know both of you are, I posted earlier about it here. I used eggplant this time, and 5 big Romas that were getting ready to head around the bend, if you know what I mean. I probably should have mentioned on that previous post that I use more oil when I use eggplant - on account of it's awesome sponge-like ability to soak up fat.
Know what else? Plain Greek style yogurt (I think I have Athenos this week) on a perfectly ripe peach? Fan-freakin-tastic. Oh, and don't hate me for this -
My wealthy and beautiful friend Julie found this (and another one almost like it) at the Goodwill. And she bought them for me. I haven't really researched it but I'm almost certain those are vintage, naked, Little Twin Stars. And there really isn't much more to say about that.
