I found a new recipe. I love samosas but I never eat them unless I’m at a restaurant. When I found this recipe that used phyllo dough, I had to try it. I have a package of phyllo dough that’s been sitting in my freezer all year and this sounds like the perfect opportunity to use it up.

This is the beef-based recipe for samosas. Here’s the vegan recipe which I think has better directions.

I’m bracing myself for September. There’s a chance I might take a short hiatus because I’m dog sitting and also expecting family to stay with us for an extended visit.

I’m hoping the weather will mellow a little. There are still a lot of projects to get done that we’ve put off because of the hot temps. We’re trying to get them done in little spurts during the early morning hours.

Are you ready for September? Do you have kids who have gone back to school?

    Samosas are a new thing for me. Will have to check them out.

    My kiddo started school on Wednesday. She is starting high school so yeah, lots to get used to.

    • Angela: You might like it. It’s best known as Indian street food, but there are variations of it in Ethiopia, Mozambique, Somalia, and Brazil. I love them, but making the pastry always intimidated me, that’s why I was glad to see I could easily exchange it with phyllo pastry which thankfully already comes ready made.
