What the hell do I know about kugel? Nothing. I'd never heard of it until I opened my copy of Veganomicon. But I like noodles and casseroles, so how could it be bad?
So this is the Spinach Kugel from 'nomicon. It was good, but probably not great enough for me to make again. Aside from the fresh taste of dill, it was fairly bland. I kept expecting more creaminess out of it, too. Ken and I agreed that it tasted much better with a dollop of Tofutti Sour Cream.
Behold, the blurriest casserole photo ever (sorry, camera trouble):
The noodles are orange because I used these.
I'm not too dissappointed in though, as it's fairly healthy and lower-fat than I would normally make a casserole.
Oh yeah, there's that. We are trying to eat healthier. I've gained more than 30 pounds in the past year, which has put me in an uncomfortable "overweight" status. So less sweets, more exercise! Yippee. No, I haven't been running as much, but we are going back to the gym instead. The gym machines are easier on my knees than the asphalt.
So I've been trying to think of things other than baking sweet treats and cooking comfort food. here are a few of my favorite diversions of late:
Fido on DVD. Second best zombie satire I've seen. It's so perfectly goofy!
Free Rice. Man, I love vocabulary teasers. It's the only smarty-pants thing I'm good at. But I have yet to beat my score of 41. It's driving me nuts.
Stuff on my Cat. Do I even need to explain this one?
