Happy manufactured holiday.

If you insist on celebrating this most vile of holidays with dinner out, for chrissake support a locally owned restaurant.

Nummy starchy goodness.

This is the shiz. I’ve become a big fan of the Food Junta blog recently and decided to give this a whirl for dinner last night. The Husband was less than thrilled with the idea of a meal without meat and fixed a tuna sandwich. He did sample the casserole and proclaimed it “pretty good” and suggested serving it as a side dish. I think it’d be awesome with lamb and a tart, vinegary salad. If you do any regular cooking, chances are you have pretty much everything in the pantry to make this; I only had to get Kalamata olives and some oregano cuz I was out.  Also, its a beautiful dish. I was too lazy to haul out the digital camera and just took a picture with my cell phone which doesn’t half do it justice.

Sarah, I think this is right up your alley.
