I was not, as a kid, a shaped-noodle aficionado. I did love box mac-n-cheese, though, and I was not persuaded by alternatives such as macaroni noodles with actual cheese or, even worse, Velveeta mac. Having been raised by people who believed Velveeta a food product as opposed to reconstituted crayon shavings, my parents once decided they wanted to relive their childhoods and make Velveeta Mac. The experiment was not repeated.

I was (and am), however, a sucker for ridiculous branded items. Which is why I bought a box of this:

- Marry me, Gail Collins? I clean up after myself and I make a mean curry!
- Review of Sarah Palin's book, "Going Rogue". I can only hope someone does a reading to equal those of Joe the Plumber's and Carrie Prejean's "biographies."
- Fun collection of Ramen-related memories.
- Famous authors read the funnies, via Roger Ebert. Garfield via James Joyce has a surreal quality, being so awkwardly true to its source material.

EONUS: A surreal moment, courtesy of Mississippi's gambling interests. Sorry, casinos, but the only thing I really want to know about Troy King is if he's really yet another conservative republican homophobe hypocrite.
In among the various end-of-year parties I managed to inherit around $50 of food and food-ingredients from a friend who was moving out of his apartment--it' s a good mix of stuff, from pesto to cornstarch to fish sauce. Which is great, except that it's also a lot of duplicate stuff and I only need so much olive oil and white vinegar.

As such, I am looking for recipes which will use up these ingredients, or even just favorite recipes in general. All suggestions are appreciated, as long as they are vegetarian and thus do not contain animal-related items.
