Sundubu jigae - the spicy korean silken tofu stew. If no fish make dashi out of kombu only no fish flakes.

Tofu stir fry of some sort

To highway's point, a curry or tagine.

Chickpeas and greens either indian style like chana masala or Spanish style like espinaca con garbanzos

Lentils with a heavy dose of tomato paste and lots of vegetables. I use this base lentil recipe as a main or side pretty often with some variations. Replace chicken stock with vegetable but add more umami with increased tomato paste, soy, or use kombu dashi as the liquid (or all of the above): https://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/ina ... pe-1917449

i generally would do a veggie curry but one of the guests isn't fully into it. i think falafel will be a nice middle ground plus you know olives and stuff.

The McDs in my neighborhood is advertising discounted filet-o-fish on Fridays.

We have a lot of Filipinos around here.

Ottolenghi's Chicken with Clementines is super good for all it has a marinade that sounds insane at first. 1/4c orange juice, 1/4c lemon juice, brown sugar, 2 tbsp mustard and a half cup of Ouzo or Pernod. Crushed fennel seeds and fennel in the pan on top of that.

I used a shallow pan that got the color a bit dark but even so it was delicious and the charred oranges are beautiful. Definitely going in the Entertaining folder.

Tried a crock-pot recipe for pork chops and potatoes in a mustard sauce; very tasty except Jeff and I both agree the sauce could stand to be a little more "mustardy." Next time I make this I'll double the mustard but keep everything else the same.

Moose bourguignon (filled out with some tri-tip to fluff it to 4lbs of meat) was the big family roast this weekend. Nothing fancy but damn it was good. I made it two days ahead of time since stew is always best on day 3.

I've been trying some of Ferrer's bottled gazpachos as snacks at work, and both the regular and "tropical" (ie, pineapple instead of tomato) versions have been good. Been pondering making my own.

The beet version is too thick, though. (And is it just a European thing, or are Americans calling them "beetroots", too? I keep running into that form.)

Pepperoni, pineapple, and jalapeños is the best topping combo. Savory, salty, sweet, acidic, and spicy.
