This was dinner last night. I used tofu instead of paneer, just drained it and fried it in a cast iron skillet with a tiny bit of olive oil, then added the spices, onions and garlic. I about 2 lbs of spinach and 1/2 cup coconut milk to cream it up. Here is the recipe for the dal. I added some cauliflower, green beans and peas to it because I had them around. It was a little runny on the plate.. that is not oil. My youngest son is so funny, he loves dal. He ate 4 huge bowls of it for dinner and went on and on about how it was the perfect food. When my kids were little, I used to make brown rice, dal and veggies and puree it and freeze it in ice cube trays for instant baby food. They must have developed a taste for it at early age. Both my kids ate veggies before fruit and I've never had an issue with them not liking vegetables.
School starts tomorrow and I'm ready for it. I can't believe my kids are going into the 8th and 10th grades. Time flies.
I have a job interview tomorrow morning. It is at a natural foods cafe and bakery. From what I can gather, the place seems like a great place to work and they have very high standards for their food. I hope I get the job! It will be a change, working full time, but I very much look forward to doing so. My husband works from home, so he can be here when the kids get home and he can drive them places if need be.
Blogger has been acting up a lot for me.. I changed over to the new beta and I hate it. It keep logging me out and everytime I post comments, it seems to freeze up. bleh.
