Humble Pie

Last night for dinner I had a whole-wheat tortilla (from the grocery store), refried beans (from a can), avocado, and salsa (from a jar). That was a pretty humbling dinner for someone who thinks she can cook! I did slice the avocado myself, though...

But, I do have cooking plans for the weekend. I'm really excited about them, and I can't wait to blog, assuming all goes well.

Oh, can anyone help me think of a fancy dessert that isn't terribly expensive? I'm going to this reception at the New York City Ballet, and they said people can bring dessert. I was thinking cupcakes, but all my cake decorating supplies are at home, and I don't really want to buy more. (If I were lolo*, I'd make little ballerinas and ballet shoes out of marzipan. But, well, I'm not lolo.)

Speaking of lolo, I have the priviledge of testing some of her recipes for her new cookbook...they are soooo yummy! I made this Soy-Mirin Glazed Tofu the other day, and it was really, really good. And I don't even like tofu.

I'd love that for dinner! The sauce drizzle is lovely.

The tofu looks and sounds delicious. Perhaps I'm posting this too late, but you could make your beautiful chocolate cake for the reception at NYCB. Topping it with the ganache and some raspberries would look beautiful. Btw, I am *huge* fan of NYCB! What is/was the reception for?

PS I just started reading your blog and discovered (from your first posting) that you go to Barnard. Me too! Well, I just graduated, but hurray for barnard foodies :)

The reception was for NYCB volunteers...I volunteered last season, which was lots of fun.

How funny that you go to Barnard! I've only met one vegan at Barnard, and she just graduated. Your initials aren't K.C. by any chance, are they?

Nope, mine are EN, but I do know who KC is! I'm actually veggie, not vegan, but I love cooking vegan dishes and exploring the vegan blogosphere. Now that I have a blogger account, perhaps we can connect :)
