We had guests for dinner - Doug's boss from DC, and his (Doug's) local component manager.
Now, the boss keeps sort-of-kosher, mostly vegetarian on travels. I decided to go for Indian food and made these suggestions from Smitten Kitchen. Of course, I could not get black-eyed peas, so I made the dish with kidney and butter beans. And I couldn't get yellow split peas, so I used green split peas (when you cook them long enough, they sort of turn yellowish). Then I also made the Indian spiced potatoes and cauliflower and some Raita, and added my fig-peach chutney from this summer. It was yummy.
We also had a lot of red wine to drink which is why this post is short.
Oh, and the dessert was my new favorite maple-nutmeg-cream pie which sort of fell apart a bit because the electricity cut out when the pie was in the oven but it tasted very yummy.
Anyway. Good food. Off to bed.
