I went to Trader Joe's yesterday. Love that place, and it gave me lots of good ideas for some vegetarian meals. I'm not going fully vegetarian again, but you can't argue that veggies and beans are good for you. So I thought I'd make more of an effort to incorporate some of our favorite vegetarian meals in our regular diet again this year. I went to our old standby, chickpea masala, with some naan bread from Trader Joe's. I got it all set up, put it on the stove on simmer, and headed outside in the unseasonably warm twilight to help my 4 year old ride her bike.
I burned the beans.
And there's nothing quite like the smell of burned beans.
Someday, someday, I'll get it right.
