I think you've heard about chili- This time, I didn't use any pumpkin, and I used 2 kinds of beans, and a lot of beer.
Roasted potatoes- surely I've told you about these...olive oil, herbs, sea salt, high temp oven, an hour, voila
Cilantro Lime Aioli
If you are using a cuisinart, use a whole egg. If making by hand, use just the yolk.
Take a spoonful of mustard, a room-temp egg, a tbsp of lime juice, salt, and a 1/4 cup olive oil and whirl
As you are whisking or whirling, slowly add a stream of olive oil until the mixture starts to thicken. Once thick, add chopped cilantro and whirl some more.
