This is where I was Sunday, December 20:
That photo was taken through the window because we haven't gotten around to digging out the back door (and probably won't bother). On a day like that, there's really nothing to do except put on some comfy pants and cook. I started with a couple of recipes for Isa Chandra Moskowitz's upcoming whole foods book: broiled blackened tofu over butternut coconut rice.
The butternut coconut rice, took about an hour to make, which is a little long, for me, for a side dish on a day that I'm not snowed in, but I had time to kill and it was worth it. It's also got shallots, garlic, ginger and things in it, so it's flavorful enough to be eaten on its own (maybe with some greens), but still mild enough to balance the Cajun-esque spices of the blackened tofu.
When I was done with that, I was still missing Barbados, so I tested Vegan in the Sun's Bajan Coconut Bread.
