oh sounds good, putting the northern beans in the northern bean salad was really creative, lol, I always try to figure out what type of beans to put in my northern bean salad and it never dawned on me how good northern beans would be.  ;0

Actually their name is the Great Northern Bean, and HERE is a good website all about beans (and other foods).

ETA: They are also in the TypeBase HERE.

I did a rare thing today, (I nearly always do all my own cooking!) and bought an entree at my hfs deli.  It is simple and delicious:

Halves of Delicata Squash topped with Chevrie cheese which is blended with crushed pecans (or other nuts for other blood types).  Then baked until squash is tender and topping is crunchy.  There were some herbs in the topping, but I didn't slow down long enough to check.

of some rare and perfect tomorrow.

I love to take out the mini hotplate, my large ceramic bowl and make nabe, Japanese style soup/stew. I throw in cut daikon, carrot, sliced Chinese cabbage, slightly salted fish, chicken balls, large chunks of tofu, negi (long onion), and so on. You bring this to a boil in dashi, flavored water of either soy or miso base. Once the food is cooked each person uses their chopsticks to grab something and dip into a sauce. Great way to eat and have fun at the same time. You can serve this with rice.

For the Os out there, Sukiyaki is delicious.
How about grilled salmon with stir fried vegies served with wild rice?
How about a soup made from lentils, chicken, burdock, carrots and onions?
There are so many wonderful winter dishes out there.
Try sauteeing different kinds of mushrooms in soy sauce and sake and fold into white rice once it is cooked.
Yum!
It's lunchtime over here.....Got to run.......

A few weeks ago I tried this great recipe for stuffed squash. It's delicious. I'm not sure where I found it   I changed a few ingredients to my taste and I don't measure when I cook I just throw things together.

I use Acorn squash

Cook some ground turkey
Boil some brown rice
Sautee onions, garlic, celery, red peppers (yellow or orange) apple, cranberries (can be left out) add whatever spices you like, salt and pepper
Add the ground cooked turked and cooked brown rice and stuff into the acorn squash. Bake for about 1 hr and it taste wonderful and makes a great presentation. Enjoy  

I guess this is a little off topic since it's about menu's, but you can make this a great meal of your choice.

On that same topic of ground turkey, I made turkey burgers last night, along the lines of what we have been discussing on the turkey stuffing thread, by adding beaten egg, but instead of bread crumbs, I crumbled a rice cake to soak up the egg.  It turned out really well.  But I haven't cooked with ground turkey in a long time and forgot how bland it is.  Next time, I'll use a LOT more flavorful seasoning.

We have re-discovered shitake mushrooms here at my house.  They are really dense and meaty textured.  They are a good quick base for any stir-fry.  Our current fast-food is (stirfried in ghee):
sliced shitake, red bell peppers, red onion, baby zuchinni.  When the veggies are just tender, I shut the heat and stir in a big handful of fresh spinach until it is wilted.  It is beautifully colorful, and so fast, and a good side dish for anything.

I have also peeled broccoli stems, sliced them and added to the stir-fry.  It's a good way to use up those big stalks, since I eat a lot of steamed broccoli.

I use a lot of broccoli stems (julienned in the food processor) because I eat a lot of broccoli florets. To think that I used to throw away the stems! I add them to salads, stirfry, even scrambled eggs or tofu. I shred the whole bunch as soon as I get home and keep them in the fridge for whenever. It makes it really easy to eat my vegies when they are already cut up.

I am not really a fan of turkey - but I buy it to get some varity :
Saturday I cooked a rather large very good dinner:
Sliced turkey breast 1 finger thick - marinated in lemonjuice, lemonpeel, salt,pepper and rosemary
- it was very good and not bland or borring - and very tender and juicy as well.
I cooked them at the high heat in ghee- becuase the lemonjuice can make them boil more than fry- and they had a nice golden" surface?"
I served it with:
some georgian side dishes:
1)Green beans parboiled and added to fried onions, garlic and parsley, dill, and cilantro- just before serving - full fat yoghurt on top- and a bit of fresh mint

2)baked beets- pureed with lemonjuice, garlic, coriander seeds and whole walnuts  and more parsley.- kind of beet salsa or ???

3)and a nice cheese bread :
Yoghurt dough - flatten as a a pizza in two circles
- in the middle a mixture of mozzarella, ricotta and feta cheese- mixed with egg and chili - put the other piece of breaddough on top- and bake golden brown and cheesy in the middle.

A nice glass of wine - 1 piece of dark chocolate - and happey to bed

I needed a change from my normal breakfast routine so today I made up a stirfry of mushrooms, ginger, garlic, broccoli, and green onions. Sprinkled on top was a pinch of percurino cheese. Not much protein, but sure tastes great and it's all bennies for me.

that sounds good, laura. Here's one of my faves: I was in a hurry so to the horror of many, including myself, I microwaved a sweet potato then scooped it out into a pan of about a half cup chicken broth and a half cup soymilk (or more) and whirred it up with a handheld blender: season and eat!!! An awesome soup, creamy and soul satisfying. good adds are cayenne, ghee, cumin, etc.

oh yum that sounds so good, and a perfect recipe for a pumpkin I just cooked (minus microwave of course)  and brings up a question for me, i was just wondering this, as far as food combining goes, if I don't want to mix a starch with a protien, could I mix pumpkin with something like tofu or soymilk?  

I use to make this madly good pumpkin pie with soymilk, ay caramba was it good!!

Obviously you do fine with mixing starch with soy jayney-o
