Yes. This is a vegetarian dish. Yes. It is really good! No. I did not miss the beef. The Quinoa gave the dish the “texture” of ground beef. The chunks of Butternut Squash gave the dish the “feel” of beef. You really should try this. It is that good. The recipe came from an Idaho Power mailing and every once in a while, they do come up with a good recipe. I just increased the corn to 1 cup and rinsed the cans out with a little red wine. That is the only change I made. The recipe is below. If you want to see these photos enlarged, Left-Click them. Enjoy!
Sunday, Oct 21, found us at another fantastic Quarterly Wine Dinner at the Buzz in Boise.Great event and great food and wines. Look at what we had and sorry if you missed this. Be sure to Left-Click for a larger view of the photos. And as a matter of record, Christi will not tell you the cost of these wines before the end of the evening. She wants you, and rightly so, to judge the wine on its attributes and not on the cost of the wine. Cheers!So there you have our great dinner and adventure at the Buzz. An awesome dinner as usual with some really excellent wines. If you missed this one, maybe we’ll see you at the next Quarterly Dinner or maybe at the monthly Wine Dinner. Cheers!
And then on Monday morning – Meatless Monday Morning – we went to Le Café de Paris to meet a friend of us from Homedale, Gina. There we had breakfast. Some great toast and jam, but no pastries! That’s almost a Cardinal Sin. Almost. Gina bought several and took them back to Homedale with her. But here is what we had for breakfast and it was good. Enjoy!
So, as you can see, we ate our way through the weekend. Oh. I didn’t tell you? For the homecoming game at BSU (they beat UNLV, 32-7) we had a great meatloaf. See Comfort Food at Halftime on this blog. Super weekend. It’s salad tonight. Cheers!
