My daughter Amy and I can nearly wipe out the entire batch of these Korean steamed buns in one sitting. They are so delicious, and although a tiny bit time consuming, they are not at all difficult to prepare. Experiment with different seasonings, vegetables and meats until you find your own favorite combination. These stuffed and steamed buns can be served as an appetizer or main dish.

Scottish Beef Stovies Recipe

| by Marilyn | main dishes

In The Winter Sea by Susanna Kearsley, Carrie, the main character is served a roast of beef with carrots and roasted potatoes. I found a recipe for Stovies, which is described as a classic Scottish dish which makes use of leftovers (meat, fat, vegetables) to create an entirely new dish. For this recipe I used leftover pot roast and added carrots to make it more like the meal Carrie was served. I also increased the amount of meat significantly because it was what I had leftover, and the amount seemed to be just right.

Red Aloo Gobi Saag Recipe

| by Marilyn | main dishes

Don’t be alarmed by the color of this dish. It is traditionally yellow but Christopher, the main character in The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time loves Indian food, especially Aloo Gobi Saag, but he does not like yellow so his father puts red food coloring in the dish. Aloo means potato, gobi means cauliflower, and saag means spinach or mustard leaf. Serve with grilled Naan (he also doesn’t like brown, so food coloring will need to be used for this as well).
