Early October Meal Plan

Hi, friends,
How many of these phrases have come out of your mouth in recent weeks/months?
“Pretty good, all things considered.”
“One day at a time, that’s really all we can do.”
“Let’s set up a Zoom call to discuss.”
“Can you hand me my mask?”
Here are some phrases I am longing to say:
“What time does the party start?”
“I love your lipstick.”
“Should we get tickets to see this play?”
“We are having such a big Thanksgiving this year.”
And here are some phrases that I’m planning to say this week:
“Let’s figure out how to go apple picking.”
“Who wants to meet up for a long walk?”
“I’m buying Halloween candy no matter what.”

And to everyone out there making it work in these unusual times: “You are doing a damn fine job.” Especially the frontline workers—we are in your debt.
Happy October, all—on to the recipes!

Salty feta, olives, and plump, sweet shrimp are tossed with buttery strands of spaghetti squash. If you’ve never cooked spaghetti squash, it’s probably a whole lot easier than you might think, and really fun to pull apart the strands.

Remember the scene in When Harry Met Sally when Harry says in that funny voice, “Waiter, there is too much pepper in my paprikash"? Anyway, I can’t ever say that word without thinking of that scene. But cinematic references aside, this is one of those comfort food dishes that you want to curl up with on a chilly night.

A flavorful and satisfying Pad Thai with plenty of vegetables: hold the fish sauce and shrimp, and sate that Pad Thai craving (there’s a vegan option, too!).

Long slender halves of Japanese eggplant are brushed with a pungent, potent, slightly sweet, salty umami sauce and cooked to a melting tenderness.

This smooth and robust dressing gets its flavor from soy sauce, sesame oil, rice vinegar, and garlic, with a touch of heat. I sometimes get stymied by thinking about what kind of salad to serve with an Asian influenced meal, and this is the perfect salad to partner up.
