My Legume Love Affair 14 - The Round-Up

They're all here: snappy salads; savory soups and stews; cauldrons of curry; fragrant folds of flatbreads; bouncing baby dumplings; stir fries and fritters; pilafs, patties and pop-in-your-mouth snacks; plus a little sweet something to finish off your meal. If I've left anyone out, or there's a correction that needs tending, please let me know, and I will update right away. A thousand apologies that I have not been able to include my traditional one-liners, puns, and other frilly (silly) intros this month. It's one of the reasons I enjoy hosting events so very much, but recent and relentless demands on my time, energy and focus have been much greater than I have anticipated. I could have managed it eventually, but it would have required at least an additional week, and you have already waited much too long. Besides, congrats are long overdue for Preeti of Relishing Recipes, the winner of the random drawing. Thank you all very much for your consistently amazing recipes. I feel blessed to be the recipient of your hospitality and creativity month after month. The pleasure is all mine.
