I was starving when I got home from work today. I am still only working half days because of my back injury and get to eat lunch at home. I still had left over mashed potatoes so I quickly mixed
up a potato pancake. I took about 1/2 cup of the mashed potatoes added some garlic, salt, pepper, about a Tablespoon of whole wheat pastry flour and about a Tablespoon of plain soy milk. Mixed it good and formed into a nice big patty. Then heated up my pan with a tiny bit of olive oil, lightly fried it, and there you have it, instant potato pancake. I topped it with a tiny bit of avocado dressing (avocado, garlic, salt, pepper, and veganaise) With leftover roasted carrots and friends and some unsweetened applesauce I was in Heaven!
While visiting everyone's blogs today, I stopped by 'Kitchen Ramblings from a Fairly Odd Tofu Mom' and saw a new recipe that sounded wonderful, Aloo Mutter Gobi. I wanted curry last night so this hit the spot. I used less oil than tofu mom, left out the tomatoes, and used lite coconut milk and it was a wonderful meal. I followed her lead and also made quinoa. Hey, guess what you can cook quinoa in your rice cooker just like white rice. Thanks, Marti! Dinner was a hit. DD tasted it and said, "Mom it is spicy, but good." Even DH said it was good. It is not a great picture. I don't know why my camera chooses when to work and when not too. The dish is actually a very vibant yellow orange.

I got the best yellow squash and zucchini at our Henry's Farmer Market. The yellow squash is just like eating sugar.
Please stop by and visit tofu mom's blog and see the original recipe.
