We cook a lot anyways, but having an extra 40 minutes a day because there’s no commute to/from work just makes cooking that much easier. The usual: salsa and hummus with our beloved food processor. I did not know I needed a food processor in my life when Michael bought us one in 2008, but once we started using it, we did not know how we ever lived without one. After 12-13 years of use, the Kitchenaid was really starting to be in bad shape, and Kyle received a new, bigger, Cuisinart food processor for his birthday, which we immediately put to use making more salsa and more hummus. Also tried out a frozen yogurt recipe, which we liked, but Vale did not.
New: tofu stir-fried with bacon and mushrooms, and Moroccan chicken (not entirely new, as we used to make it more frequently, but it’s been years). I found my mom’s tofu recipe crammed in the miscellaneous drawer, and decided to give it a go. I’ve made it a couple of times, and it’s pretty good, though consistency is a problem because mom never gives measurements, and everything is an estimate, so it comes out different every time.
