Well you inspired me (us - there was a lot of slicing and dicing!) to start here. Definitely a comfort food type of meal and given that it was a day of wind and heavy rain and in the 40s, excellent timing. I just followed the recipe more or less, used green cabbage and made it like a casserole (no cabbage leaf layering). I used 1/2 pound of cremini and 1/4 pound each shitake and chanterelles. We also added croutons and chopped walnuts to the top. I'm looking forward to see how the flavor develops after sitting overnight. We had it with an rustic artisan bread.

ETA: Next day leftovers did not disappoint! Earthy/shroomy flavors much richer and more developed - yum!

Tonight will be a Broccoli Cheddar Quiche with my homemade crust along with a salad. I made Lemon Bars yesterday and let me tell you about these lemon bars. They are not ordinary. The recipe is from Cook's Illustrated and they are exquisite. They are a bit more work, but very worth it.

Rockabilly - I don't think it's fair to leave us hanging like that! Recipe please for your lemon bars?

I thought google would help but Cook's Illustrated has more than one option:

In a nod to the cold, I'm trying my hand at vegan pho tonight. I've cobbled together a vegan recipe from Kenji's recipes at Serious Eats, a vegan one from Food52, and Alton Brown's redo of his old Good Eats episode.

I'm making Chile Verde in the Instant Pot tonight. I grew so many green chiles last summer! On the side, black beans and sauteed veggies.
