What to Make for Dinner?

I have a habit of printing out a gizillion recipes from the internet, throwing them in a drawer, and never making them. I have a whole huge stack that I go through frequently, thinking I will get rid of some of the older ones. I should throw out anything from 3 years ago that I haven't made, right? Then I think "that looks good and this looks good," and put them back in the drawer. Well, I was trying to think of something for dinner, and decided to grab whatever was on top and just make them. Luckily I picked two winners!




I saw this Salt 'n' Pepper Tofu at happy vegan face (originally from PPK) and it is just so good - you must make it! That is sauteed escarole on the side.


This Smoky Chickpea Soup from Bunnyfoot is also wonderful. It has saffron in it, which I got from Trader Joe's at a great price.
Isn't it cute?
I made these seed crackers that I learned at a cooking class to go with the soup. I used my leaf-shaped cookie cutters in honor of the beautiful fall weather we've been having.
The only downside of all this cooking is the dishes!

YAY for delicious food making and BOO for dish washing!
Your tofu looks amazing and so do those super cute crackers! I think we have the same set of cookie cutters. I love that little saffron bottle!

Wow. This all looks so terrific. And yes, doing dishes is the worst thing about cooking.

I try to keep my internet recipes in my favorites folder these days. I can never find a printout when I want it. I have a big recipes folder with a sub-folder for recipes that I have already made, for easy reference. Whenever I sit down and do actual menu-planning, I try to fit in at least one of the new recipes that I have bookmarked but haven't made yet. So far, I've found a lot of good ones, and I am not cluttering my house with even more paper that way...

Not that I am saying you shouldn't print them, just sharing what works for me!
