That being said, I occasionally have to cook vegan, and found a perfect recipe which accomodated vegan and gluten-free diets. When there are multiple food restrictions occuring in the same meal with different people, cooking sometimes gets a little complicated! I do want to prepare a meal for a friend at times, and accomodating another's special diet is the first step to having a good time.
The recipe is for Butternut Squash Coconut Chili. I found this on a beautiful blog that looks as though it's been abandoned. I'm working on making sure my own, Chapel Hill Snippets, continues to be up and running.
I made this today, and it was delicious. Please go to the Fig Tree for the recipe.
I would be remiss if I didn't mention our state's weather disaster. Hurricane Florence devastated the eastern part of North Carolina. My community, Chapel Hill, was relatively unscathed, but I worry about all the people down east, many with flooded homes and little relief in sight as the flood waters continue to rise. The news is terrible and sad.
We did have a bit of a downpour yesterday which gave us a taste of the power of water. Our little babbling brook down in the ravine turned into a major torrent in the matter of a few hours.
