We had our vegetarian/carnivore stroganoff last night, and it was very good, indeed. I made garlic bread using a hunk of Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day’s recipe for brotchen, except I worked in some garlic powder and Italian mixed cheeses before I put it to rise and didn’t put water in the oven with it. The crust was soft and the interior was packed with all kinds of flavors.

Another thing this bread would go well with is this ravioli dish I made a bit ago:ravnchsck


  • ravioli
  • frozen peas
  • pre-cooked chicken, cubed
  • fresh mushrooms
  • butter
  • Parmesan cheese

Fry the mushrooms in a dry pan. Meanwhile, cook the ravioli. Add butter to mushrooms. Add peas and chicken and stir until hot through. Drain ravioli and divide onto plates. Top with vegetables. Sprinkle with fresh-grated Parmesan cheese.

The dessert is leftover cheesecake topped with fresh strawberries marinated in sugar.
