Eggplant Almond

Wednesday, January 19th, 2005 · No Comments

It’s been nearly a year since Jen last made one of my favorite meals: The eggplant-almond enchilada. It’s Mexican food, hippie style.

Take some eggplants, throw in some almonds and other good lovin’, and out come these amazing enchiladas. I don’t know how she does it, but I’m glad she does. I also don’t understand why I love these things, but Jen isn’t a fan at all. More for me, I suppose. I need to enjoy them while I can, since it will be another year before I get to eat ’em again.

In other news, Condoleezza Rice was interviewed yesterday in the first of two sessions by the Senate Foreign Relations Committee for her nomination to be Secretary of State. Only California Sen. Barbara Boxer had the guts to stand up to her on the mess in Iraq:

Boxer noted sharply that Rice had not mentioned in her opening statement the 1,366 American soldiers who have died or the 10,372 wounded in Iraq, and she questioned the Bush administration’s accountability for leading the nation to war on “falsehoods” about former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein’s possession of weapons of mass destruction.

“One of the things that matters most to my people in California and the people in America is this war in Iraq,” Boxer said. “I personally believe — this is my personal view — that your loyalty to the mission you were given, to sell this war, overwhelmed your respect for the truth.”
