I was able to squeeze another cook-date in with Amy today! It made me so happy! I woke up and the sky was shining, and the sun was beaming and the leaves were falling, and the air smelt like fall, but it was warm! Ahhhh.
We planned in advance, so we knew that xgfx soft pumpkin pretzels would be in the works. But then, Amy got wooed by the fresh curry leaves sitting on my counter (she'd never had them before), and because my fridge was cooperating with produce, we whipped up a big pot of sambar, too!
The pretzels? We fashioned them from oat, sorghum and corn flour, with a little yeast, flax and the devil's own magic (xantham gum) thrown in for good measure. They were wonderful (though I may play around with the recipe another time soon for additional tweaking), and we ate some bites with Zatarain's whole grain mustard, some more with our deliriously delicious fig preserves from Monday, and then even more were dunked into our sweet and spicy soup!
Amy needs to stay.
