Sesame Eggplant Stir Fry

So I’m running a marathon on Sunday,  my seventh!  I’m incredibly excited, even though I know there’s pretty much a 0.000032% chance that I’ll PR.  It’s okay, though.  I signed up way back in August when I had no idea what life with a baby would be like, and […]

Soba with Eggplant and Mango

I had two fantastic runs this weekend.  First up: 10 miles on a beautiful path with Mike and Ellie. I woke up kind of dreading the run and I was in a pretty crabby mood, but about 3 miles in everything was good again. It was warm, my legs […]

Baked Eggplant with Couscous and Yogurt

I guess all jobs are like this to some extent, but teaching really seems to be one with big ups and downs. On Tuesday I felt like the a totally awesome teacher. The activity went well, the kids were into it, and they all really seemed to get the […]

Spicy Eggplant and Goat Cheese Sandwiches

Sometime last week, I decided I wanted to run a mile on the track. I think I was still riding high on my better-than-expected 8K time, so it seemed like a good idea. I decided Sunday was the day, and didn’t think about it too much for a couple […]

Eggplant and Tofu in Miso Sauce

I guess I should come clean, since Mike called me out in the comments of the last post, and publicly admit that I went to Bi-Rite Creamery twice in less than 24 hours (and for those keeping count, yes, that’s 4 scoops of ice cream in less than 24 […]

Curried Potatoes with Eggplant

This was Easter dinner. Or, the dinner I ate on Sunday, which happened to be Easter. Things have changed a little since I was 7 years old and Easter meant a frilly dress, jelly beans at church, lamb with mint jelly, and the fancy lace tablecloth on the dining […]

Eggplant and Chickpea Curry

I have some confessions. I have not run at all this week. I’m so scared about my knee being messes up for Boston that I don’t want to chance it. But I’ve also decided not running means not working out at all, and I’ve only gone to the gym […]

Millet and Tempeh Stuffed Eggplant

Yesterday was just one of those days. I knew there was pretty much nothing in the cupboards, but I was too lazy to stop at the store, leaving me with no choice but to try and throw some stuff together that was edible. Just before starting dinner I baked […]

Eggplant and Cashew Barley

Last night I came to the slightly painful realization that my photos have gotten incredibly boring. Food + white dish + white background over and over. And over. So today I went to the craft store (where I feel completely out of place because I’m not crafty in the […]

Baba Ghannouj

I make hummus all the time. I just love having it in the fridge as an easy snack, and it’s rare that I don’t have all the ingredients on hand. Baba ghannouj, on the other had, is a little more “special occasion” to me. The ingredients are pretty similar, […]
