Very excited to try the lunch I’ve prepared for this week: vegan kheer! (The idea of using coconut milk was intriguing.) Finally, a slow cooked meal I can eat cold. #food #slowcooker #crockpot

Back into slow-cooked lunch after taking last week off: Potatoes with cabbage & mushrooms. It doesn’t look quite as appetizing as past dishes, but it’s delicious! (Plus a side of frozen steamed broccoli found in the freezer while moving apartments.) #food #slowcooker

Eggplant, sweet potato, mushroom curry. Did something a little different for lunch this week: used ingredients I rarely eat (eggplant, mushrooms) and changed a number of ingredients in the recipe I found. I’m quite happy with the result! #food #slowcooker

Another week’s lunch: pumpkin & lentil chili. Possibly the tastiest meal I’ve made so far. #slowcooker #food

With everyone moving out in stages, I’ve unexpectedly lost access to a can opener, do I’m doing it the old fashioned way with a Leatherman.
