Well, after lurking for many, many months, I've made the decision to become an active member of this board! (Along with a renewed dedication to cooking on a regular basis! )
This weekend I went on a cooking spree and made two of the quick dinners in the October issue of CL (my apologies to those who have not yet received this issue - it's fantastic!).
I made the Spinach and Mushroom Enchiladas with the Black Bean Salad on Sunday night. They were very easy to throw together and tasted wonderful! The Black Bean salad was a bit too cider-y for my taste, but it went well with the enchiladas.
Last night I made the Pasta with Roasted Butternut Squash and Shallots and talk about YUMMY! I would never have thought that something so simple would be so delicious!! My roommate RAVED about this. I served this with the roasted asparagus (as suggested), which was also good.
Tonight I will make the lentils with rice dish in the article about Middle Eastern cooking. I must say that this board can be credited with my renewed desire to cook. You guys consistently bring up wonderful sounding recipes that I must try and keep me interested in eating healthy, and delicious, food. So....Thanks!!
