* 2019-01-09 [https://yupitsvegan.com/general-tsos-chickpeas/ general tso's chickpeas] a favorite repeat, 4x, which was only about 2/3 of the pot, but it was great as usual and perfect for a quieter night. Also, [http://www.onegreenplanet.org/vegan-recipe/yaki-onigiri-with-sweet-potato-and-avocado-filling/ yaki onigiri] rice balls, 3x. There were but plain themselves, but with the Teriyaki sauce, delicious! Super labor intensive though, must be several minutes of work EACH, so it really doesn't scale. The sauce, of course we couldn't get mirin, so we subbed in dry sherry + brown sugar, but didn't have enough sherry either, so subbed red wine vinegar for about 1/2; people tell me the vinegar really gave the teriyaki a sweet & sour flavor which was awesome, so I'd say unintentional genius :-)
* 2019-01-01 [https://www.thestar.com/life/food_wine/2015/04/09/rastafarian-restaurant-in-scarborough-offers-vegan-meals-from-scratch.html carrot and ginger rice] a repeat 3x and [http://www.wifemamafoodie.com/simple-vegetable-dumplings/ simple vegetable dumplings] 2x and more dough from [http://www.onegreenplanet.org/vegan-recipe/bbq-lentil-baozi/ baozi] recipe from last time. The mushroom dumpling filling was actually great, way better than the lentil thing from last time. The rice, good, but wasn't a great combo with the dumplings, I think some kind of green veggies would have been better. Dumplings are fun, but also so much work, it was good it was a quiet week (new years day!).
