A Day Of Favorites

Lunch was Mujdarrah (aka Lentils & Rice topped with Crispy Onions) $6.95 from Olive Express.
Boca Chick'n Patties and Side Salad for dinner.
The last third of my $5 piece of Vegan Treats Coconut Cake for dessert.
Frontera Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot.

Thank you for letting me know the actual name of that dish!

I'm intrigued by the appearance of prices. I have thought about setting myself on a food budget, but that's the one place I need to splurge (including al-co-hol). How much was supper?

(continued from yesterday)yea, i was looking at your cake thinking about the crumb as i made cupcakes..that turned out gummy:)

foodfeud said...

Apparently I had no idea what mujdarrah was. Is it always rice/lentils?

I love checking in and seeing your delicious pictures. The Lentils & Rice topped with Crispy Onions looks really yummy.

BTW, a couple of nights ago I was like a mad woman rummaging through the pantry for a can of coconut milk to I could make magic bars after looking at your blog...there was none.

And you were in my dream the other night!

Sometimes the favorites are what we need, not new-fangled dishes.

Michelle said...

Lunch sounds great! Looks like you've had some great meals over the last several days! :o)

I agree with blessed mama! I HAVE to always include my favorites. I love lentis and I think they are so underloved. :( So Im glad to see some lentils on your faves!

Thank You All For Coming By, Fellow Bloggers!

Dianne & FF, yes, Mujadarra is always Rice & Lentils. Although, Rice & Lentils is not always Mujadarra.

Jessica, I believe supper (as they call it in the south), was less than $5. I know I had some intention in mind when I started adding the prices, but I forget now what it was.

Michelle1, do you ever cook/bake anything that comes out successfully?

Deb & Morgan, thanks! Glad you two are posting again.

Janet, you're so lucky you can go into Coconut Cake territory with a clean slate, unlike those of us with unresolved issues regarding this traditional Southern delight.

Jenny, in your dream, was I having sex with your husband? Cuz I think I had the same exact one! Regardless, you must make the Magical Coconut Cookie Bars! Don't give up!

Blessed Mama, 'new fangled' is definitely not my M.O.

Michelle2, I really have had some great meals lately. It's not as easy to do as it would seem.

oh, no you di'int...

bwahahaha...i don't even know what to say to that one.
