The Chef: Aurelia
The Menu: An absolutely delicious, homey casserole. Aurelia layered sliced potatoes, kale, and zucchini under a smoked paprika-infused tofu topping and flavored the dish with lots of garlic. The result was a wonderful, satisfying meal that helped to further recoup those of us who are still feeling under the weather. To complement her savory main, Aurelia also made a vibrant salad of greens, tomatoes, avocado, onion, and carrots, which she served with a garlic-loaded vinaigrette.
The Goods: Today was another unusually warm day at the VNHQ, and we were all glad for it. Since there are still a couple sickies in the office, the sunny weather worked to our advantage for making everyone feel better. Speaking of feeling better, how do you feel after last night's presidential debate? Better, worse, indifferent?
