Saag, dhal, and a painting
Our first night back in Berkeley we made saag (onions, garlic, and spices; kale and spinach; sour cream) and dhal (onions, garlic, and spices; lentils and vegetable broth). Everything was a little bland — use more spices than you think you need — but comfort-food-y.
The painting in the background is a beautiful and humongous rose my sister made for us. She's quite an artist, and we have a number of her paintings up around the house. The apple pears are from my parents' trees.
