Photos of Last Week's Food

Sorry for the delay on this but I just have not had any time to upload! These days our routine revolves around coming home from work and entertaining an increasingly fussy baby (this will change when we move and we can enforce the nap schedule) and then prepping dinner/going through mail/completing all errands after we put Little One down and then stumbling exhaustedly into bed so that we can start the cycle again the next day.

I took photos, but never had the time to upload them! I know, it's tragic. Here are some of the best bits.

The spicy cabbage from the NY Times:
Alas I do not have a wok, and so my version is not as great looking as the one in the recipe.

Here it is pre and post stir-frying.

Chocolate Zuchinni Bread:

This really just tastes like chocolate cake. Some people said they tasted the zucchini, but most just felt it was a moist chocolate cake. This means it is a good way to disguise vegetables when giving to your kids, but it does have a decent amount of sugar, so I would not eat it regularly.

The real winner of the week was the Swiss Chard recipe from  Yotam Ottolenghi. Hands down the best way to prepare chard I have tried. Do not worry if you don't have tamarind - you can use a little lemon juice and an equivalent amount of prune butter.

I took all the photos myself on my not so great pocket camera! You'd be amazed what a little lighting and the macro feature on the camera can do. If you will eat vegetables, sure I'll cater.

What on earth is chard? Maybe we'll leave that off the menu.
