Vegetarian dinner No. 3
What happened to vegetarian dinner No. 2, you're asking? That's a good question.
I had the best of intentions to be serving vegetarian dinners every night till Thanksgiving for my daughter's sake, but we got back from a matinee late. While I had planned dinner, I hadn't bothered to check to see if I actually had all the ingredients for what I had planned, a vegetable stew.
I considered my options: a) steam some broccoli and carrots and pretend they were dinner; b) open cans of Amy's Soup, which I've never had but my daughter swears by. I decided to go with Plan C. ...
Plan C was to pull out homemade spaghetti sauce from the freezer.
This had the disadvantage of not being vegetarian, but the advantage of being really good. I mean, it wasn't as if I slapped down a slab of rare meat on her plate, was it?
I made up for it last night by serving my vegetable stew, which has blackeyed peas, and cornbread (southern style, which means white cornmeal and no sugar).
