dinner daydreams.

The simple knowledge that I was going to make this dinner was all I needed to keep me motivated for 9 hours on my feet today.

It was sort of a spin on my go-to formula, with a twist from some sauce.

I started with the veg:

vegetableseggplant, zucchini, mushrooms

While sautéing, I whipped up a batch of peanut sauce.

Then I cooked up the last of my soba noodles, saving the garnishes for last.

I tossed all the deliciousness together and fridged it for about an hour.  There was some wine consumed in the meantime.

Digging in was worth the wait.


Do you ever dream of a meal all day?
