Cooking As Meditation – A Perfect Evening

dinner on the patio!

I moved into a new apartment last weekend, so I’ve been very busy with packing, unpacking, and getting stuff set up. I haven’t had very much time to cook, so I haven’t had the best eating habits lately.

But last night (Sunday evening) I cooked my first real meal in my new place, and enjoyed it on the patio. I have a gas range now, instead of electric, which I don’t have too much experience with, so I decided to do something easy – curried vegetables. It turned out excellent! For dessert, I had a raw pudding that I bought from the local Mother’s Market (an awesome mostly vegetarian market).

I’ve been picking up some cool things to cook with…Bed Bath & Beyond really loves me right now. I’m really excited about my new refrigerator; it has the freezer on the bottom, so the main compartment is eye-level and easier to reach things. I also bought a fancy new eco-friendly set of pots and pans called Greenware. They are great to cook with.

As for my dinner….I chopped up some broccoli, cauliflower, butternut squash and green beans, sauteed them a bit and then simmered in some Bombay Curry. For dessert, the raw pudding. When I tried a sample in the market, I nearly did a backflip it was that delicious.

  1. Once you are all settled in your new apartment, I have no doubt that you will be creating more awesome meals (A gas range! I am jealous, my electric range only heats the elements partially). And, I have decided that I must have some of your pudding. If there is a pudding that makes people do backflips and has avocado in it, I need some.

  2. Wow you’re like the 3rd person I know who’s moving this summer!

    I’ve heard about the greenpan and have been wondering if it’s worth the purchase.

    Your curried vegs looks good…sometimes I like eating curries with nice soft fluffy bread.
