* 2018-05-29 [https://knowledge.hacklab.to/w/images/f/fb/Malka_Dal_%28Red_Lentil_Curry%29_-_Nehu%27s_Kitchen.pdf malka dal red lentil curry] a repeat 4x and [https://mayihavethatrecipe.com/a-rosh-hashana-family-favorite-sweet-basmati-rice-with-carrots-raisins/ rosh hashana carrot raisin rice] 3x. The dal once again impressed, would make again for sure, very tasty. It was a bit too liquid-y this time compared to what I like, and Pari added some extra spices at the end (including cloves and more oil-burst-coriander seeds), but I think that was because I didn't let them burst enough at the beginning to get the full taste in. The rice was a bit ordinary - there are better carrot-rice recipes below.
* 2018-05-22 [https://thevietvegan.com/vegan-spicy-lemongrass-noodle-soup/ spicy lemongrass noodle soup] 8x and [https://www.allrecipes.com/recipe/10264/oatmeal-raisin-cookies-i/ oatmeal raisin cookies] 2x. It's hard to scale up a recipe for 2 people to one for 20! Ended up putting too much pasta in (they didn't have glass noodles, so I used vermicelli; put in about 1.5 packages, one would have been sufficient). It was still really great dish though, lots of people asked for the recipe! I think it was the lemongrass that was the magic ingredient. Just that alone on the pot at the beginning was magic. I also used a LOT of extra veggies compared to the recipe. The marinated tofu, I stirred right in rather than have it on top, since they didn't have firm at the store and mine was falling apart anyway. But I think it was also a key part of the taste. Cookies, really great actually, despite having like 60, they were almost all gone before I left.
