    Even your “leftovers” and “whatever I have in the cupboard” nights sound appealing. I love how resourceful you are in using up ingredients and supporting a good cause with your Indian food night. Seriously, this gives me major meal planning envy! Did you get a chance to share Cora’s taco recipe or that white chicken chili? I’m always looking for new favorites. Anyway, have a great week (and enjoy a small world cup!), and enjoy all that delicious food!
