Ahem. But we are going to split up the holidays to make them more manageable, so here we go, PANCAKE TUESDAY YAY! This morning Dan sleepily whipped up some Orange Cloud Pancakes and they were light and fluffy and holiday-worthy indeed.
|I'd say this is Dan's favorite of all the Tuesdays.|
And Sunday of course ushered in the Year of the Snake, so I gave the interwebs a quick once over and come up with Asian Slaw with Ginger Peanut Dressing plus Crispy Salt and Pepper Tofu and lo, it was good. Seriously, start coating your tofu in cornstarch and frying it up, this is Erica's Non-Joke Tip of the Day.
|You only get one, use it wisely.|
This is to appease those who were upset at my lack of eggs during Thai week: I was just saving them to cover up the spectacular jumble I made of these spaghetti squash cakes.
|See what happens when a meal is non-themed? Disaster.|
|So maybe only 2.5 heads next time.|
Oh, I did sneak a cookbook in on the sly, #18: Bread (Christine Ingram and Jennie Shapter, 2003). Provenance: Dan's pre-Erica bargain-bin spree. Previous recipes on this blog: none. Recipe: Anadama bread, featuring molasses and cornmeal.

Hey, Ivy's BFF Scarlett turned one this weekend and look at the cute Pinteresty veggie cups!
|I always suspected what our vegetable garden was lacking was "dip."|
There was also a brand new and very cute playhouse in the backyard, although I didn't go inside it, as it appeared to be guarded by a rather cross troll of some type.
Well, I wanted to add a picture of Ivy, but I can't seem to find her anywhere.
I'm sure she'll turn up eventually.
Maybe we can even track down that troll.
