More McDougalling  
Well, this is day 6 of our McDougall experiment.  We got some books from our friends which are opening up new worlds of possibility.  We erred on the side of caution, not having all the info - but have discovered there are quite a few things allowed on the program - even the maximum weight loss program - that will make our lives easier.  (like honey and soy sauce, sparingly)  We decided we really want to keep track of the recipes we create that we enjoy.  So I figure this is as good a place as any - plus I'm enjoying snapping off pics of the things that turn out pretty.  Last night I made my favorite McDougall meal so far....

Tomato Curry Stew
Pour vegetable broth into a deep skillet
Add chopped onions, green and red pepper and chopped garlic and cook
Cut yellow squash into thick chunks and put into center of pan to cook
Add curry powder (lots), red wine vinegar, hot sauce, garlic powder, parsley and salt
When squash begins to get tender, add a large can of tomato sauce
Add more seasoning as necessary and cook on low heat
Strain and rinse 1 can black beans and 1 can garbanzo beans and add to stew
When beans and squash are tender, add thawed green peas

It's yummy by itself in a bowl - but we served it over brown rice (cooked in this awesome new rice cooker):

Today for lunch I put water and quinoa in a pan and as it was cooking, added chopped red peppers, and sliced mushrooms, chopped cilantro, lime juice, garlic powder, some tony chachere's and a bit of tumeric.  I cooked it till it was tender, then added thawed green peas and stirred in a bit of soy sauce.  I blanched some fresh broccoli and served it w/chopped cilantro on top. It was tasty.  Here it is:
