Vegetarian Dinner on a Weeknight

Had a friends dinner last night, and again, Sarah cooked for us. She came up with a Caribbean themed meal, which was a bit of a surprise given her initial cryptic email telling us what ingredients she needed (i.e. okra, mustard seeds, dried coconut, banana, milk, ice cream, cilantro, rice, etc.). The main dishes of the night were spiced kidney beans, lightly pan-cooked okra/squash, coconut rice and banana milkshake (I got to make this!).

One lil mishap was when salt accidentally fell into the [~5] lb pot of kidney beans, but we werent to fear, we had JP there to spice it back to a salty perfection. After the vegetarian din, I think I will make meatballs and mashed potatoes (with scallions for dinner tonight).

(L-R, Top to Bottom): Some addt'l (accdt'l) salt fell on kidney beans; cooked okra and squash; freshly chopped pentagonal okra; ingredients for a banana milkshake
