Especially appliances! Billy cleaned out our "icebox" freezer yesterday because the ice was threatening to take over....but he ended up puncturing it, and the fridge was kaput. We were worried the landlord would be mad, but he actually thanked Billy for breaking it. Turns out there were only three old ones like it left in the building and they wanted to replace them, so he had a bigger and better fridge waiting! It has its own freezer door, instead of being a little compartment in the fridge. Now I have to buy more food to fill it up :P Its a relief though, because now we can fit way more food in the freezer and I can freeze leftovers if I have to.
I had the lasagna florentine I made for lunch yesterday. I would've eaten it for dinner too, but wanted a little variety, so I made the vegetable biryani from La Dolce Vegan with some fresh corn. It was so good and satisfying. I wondered how well cinnamon and ginger would fit into the equation, but they add such great taste without being completely obvious. This delectable dish has brown basmati rice, red lentils, organic chickpeas, organic tomato, carrot, peas, onion, garlic, fresh mint and spices. I can't wait to eat the leftovers today for lunch. I love that it has rice, lentils and chickpeas....healthy!
