Mac and cheese again tonight. We’re starting to get low on groceries, and it’s one of those things that we pretty much always have the ingredients for on hand.

It’s a long weekend here this weekend, and we’re trying to avoid grocery shopping until Tuesday - I think we’ve got enough on hand to last us.

Last night, I made a tandoori-style chicken dish (legs) with a cucumber-mint salad on the side.

After that, though, I made rice pudding for dessert, using leftover rice. Normally, when I make rice pudding, it's just the rice, and some milk, sugar, and vanilla, all cooked together on the stove, but this recipe called for simmering it in the oven and mixing in dried cherries, maple syrup, sugar, lime zest, vanilla, and sour cream, then topping it with a quick blueberry sauce.

Lush!

Husband cooked dinner tonight, and he made steak sandwiches on the fresh sourdough bread I baked this morning.

Sourdough crust pizza tonight. We’re a bit low on groceries, but I scrounged up some onion, red pepper, green olives, and fresh basil from the garden to top it with, so I think it’ll still be good.

Simple dinner tonight: cajun rice and beans. I’m making sourdough garlic rolls to go with (if anyone remembers a restaurant chain called Alice Fazooli’s, they’re quite similar to the crabshack bread you could get there).

Last night I made falafels, and we had them in pitas with homemade tzatziki (with cucumbers and herbs from the garden), tomatoes, and homemade pickled turnips.

I'm wondering whether I should make pickled turnips again. They're really good on falafels but I can never seem to find them in the stores. I should probably make another batch.
