I may be a vegan, but I take making Kurt’s non-vegan dinner very seriously. :)
I made proper caramelized onions for the first time ever today – normally I just end up with sautéed ones, but today I invested the time and energy to cook them down over the course of an hour. I had NO idea how naturally sweet onions are when you give them this much love and attention! The onions were vegan so I enjoyed a bit of that in addition to the mushrooms I made in sage “butter” (actually just Earth Balance). Sooo good. Kurt got the bonus sirloin steak and cheesy potatoes, naturally. I love to cook for people and I love experimenting, so come on over and see what we end up with! I’ve actually been doing quite a bit of experimenting with baking for the first time ever, but I think I’ll save that for another post… I will say that having the time to put such a great deal of effort and love into the kitchen everyday is one of the good sides of unemployment/being a housewife. Hope you all enjoyed a delicious supper today, too! In the famous words of Julia Child, whose 100th birthday was last week, bon appétit! And enjoy this fantastic auto-tuned video of Julia from PBS:
Bring on the roasted potatoes!
