Jenn and I are looking for ways to eat well, eat healthier and eat for less bank. Last night I came up with a dish that meets all three of those requirements. For the main course, we had a dish that was a layer of squash topped by a layer of home-made tomato sauce topped by a layer of zucchini topped by a layer of onion and then finished off with a layer of cheese. I went with cheddar, but I want to try it soon with feta. it was amazing. Next I stuffed a couple of Indian eggplants with garlic cloves and roasted those. We served that with a spinach salad and had a fruit dessert.
The problem that I always run into is wondering how I am going to top the last meal. Lately, each meal has been great on it's own, but after a week where I made both this and an amazing avocado chicken recipe, how do I not feel disappointed next time my coconut chicken soup becomes something closer to gruel?
Not that gruel is bad or anything... I hear that British orphans are quite fond of it.
