I missed our new NM Senator Tom Udall's resolution to skip two meals, and donate the "saved" money to a local food bank; I missed the invitation by the post office to donate canned goods in my mailbox to the hungry, too. But I did buy and donate a can of pinto beans to the cause via my local market, and I gave a buck to a guy begging on Pennsylvania Avenue here in DC. Not much, but something.
In solidarity with the State Dinner for India, we are doing an all-veg Tgiving spread at a friend's house. I am committed to green chile cornbread, am pondering some kind of squash/pumpkin empanadas, a green chile casserole, some Asian green beans, possibly some deep fried garbanzo beans with a Middle eastern sauce, spuds. Hmmm..asparagus grilled with Balsamic vinegar....it sounds like a real hodge-podge, doesn't it?
Dessert will be either ginger tea, or Pepto-Bismol.
