We went to the farmer's market.  It was a beautiful day to be out and about.  :D  Sadly they did not have either of the meats we went looking for.  We did get another onion and a couple pints of mixed cherry tomatoes.  

At Common Ground we found cilantro, an acorn squash, heavy cream, and some other stuff we need for various recipes.  

We went to World Harvest for spices, urad dal (a kind of tiny black bean), and so forth.  They had their tasting board out, which turned us  on to a very nice smoked gouda cheese and their bulk truffle-infused olive oil.  \o/  To me, truffle has a very loud smell and taste, and I love the stuff.  So I bought a bottle.  They're selling it by the pound; I got a little over $10 worth, which should last a long time.

We dropped by Dallas & Company, chatted with our friend Andy, and bought some magic supplies.  

There are still loads of tomatoes left.  Doug is planning to make pico de gallo and dal makhani.  I still have the spaghetti sauce planned.  We went to Wal-Mart and bought 2 more pounds of Italian sausage, and had a talk about adding peppercorns and crushed red pepper to zip it up a bit more.  I also went looking for more small freezer containers, but I don't really like the ones currently available.  However, I found some very nice freezer-safe sandwich holders which are small and flat.  If these work well, I will probably go back and stock up on those while I can.

Tomorrow is planned as a cooking day again.

Is Doug's dal makhani recipe like the recipe found here:

It looks delicious!
I've got to gather tomatoes today and put them up.

I don't know what recipe he uses, but we did buy cream for it. I think we use ground spices.
