Menu: Bean/Pumpkin Soup, Baked Eggs, Ethiopian Food, Vegetarian Bolognese,

I just can't seem to talk about anything but food these days—which is kinda funny, since with this lingering cold I haven't really been able to taste anything for about a week. Still, we need to eat, which means I need to plan. Here's what's on the docket:
  • Black bean pumpkin soup. Needless to say we'll skip the ham, and we'll use dried black beans from the garden, leftover Halloween pumpkins, and garden tomatoes (we still have a bunch of them pinking up in a box in the pantry—awesome). 
  • Ethiopian food (yellow peas, spicy lentils, shiro, and greens with injera from the merkato a few blocks from here. Have I mentioned that I love our new neighborhood?)
  • Eggs in Purgatory with Artichoke Hearts, Potatoes and Capers. Mostly because I like the name. I might swap out the artichoke hearts since a) I don't have any on hand and b) the kids aren't huge fans. Any ideas of what would be good in there?
  • Spanish White Beans With Spinach tossed with pasta.  
  • Pasta with Vegetarian Bolognese Sauce. I don't have a recipe for this one but can write it up if there's interest.

seriously? There's an Ethiopian Merkato a few blocks from you?! WHERE??? I need injera. I'm going to give Miser Wot (sp?!) a go- I have the butter and lentils (the butter with the name I will never remember)- from an adoptive mama friend.... I NEED injera though!
