You've seen this picture before, I know, but hey, at least it's bigger this time. I have every intention of regaling you with tales and recipes of my Thanksgiving derring-do, but first, let me invite you to join us in observing Roughage Week.
If you're like me, the switch from your usual diet to a giant wodge of potatoes, cream, and similar holiday ingredients has left you feeling a bit... solid. The proper remedy, I feel, is a week of meals that don't necessarily comprise the most ascetic spa food, but that are calculated to make one feel a little bit less like an inert tuber oneself. In conclusion, roughage week makes the trains run on time.
This means that leftover pumpkin pie and coffee for breakfast will be just fine (hooray) but also that I might prefer a giant pear for a snack over a bowl of potato chips. And for tonight's dinner, a big bowl of oatmeal upma. A nice big spoonful of spicy achar doesn't hurt, either. More dinners on a similar theme to come.
