Coincidence? I CALL IT FATE

SO I JUST HAPPENED to have some seeds at my house.
I got them sent to me for research cuz I am writing about slow food and gardening etc.
Great great great....

Now I find out that the First Lady will be on Sesame Street talking about Seeds and gardening and healthy food
I almost BURST with excitement
Can anyone be more LOVELY?
To be a foodie too?????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
ps. Isn't that the BEST cardigan?!

Best soup in the world

Last night I made the BEST soup I have ever had.
Maybe it was the best because I was ill and needed soup but I would totally offer it to other people so I know it has to be good
It was a simple but magical blackbean soup.
I Put 2 cups of water to boil, added 2 tea spoons of DRIED (has to be dried cuz i despise normal onion) ONION, 2 tsp of habanero sauce, some oregano and parsley and some seasoning salt and let it come to a boil.
Add One whole HALF RIPE TOMATO that you cut up into cubes
Added one can of blackbeans (Goya).
Let that come to a boil.
Turn off
Let cool for 10 mins
Add little by little to a blender and pulse till beans are not whole
Reheat on stove BUT THE SECRET is to add two tablespoons of crumbled GORGONZOLA.
Say Yumm
Cuz you are in heaven
(I have leftovers) :)


I have had Chestnuts before in Trinidad, only we call them Chataigne!
Have mercy!
I knew I had it before!
They just look a little different here!
AND we don't roast them we boil them
Mummy I want chataigne!

I should go walk and read.

Its that time again

Limes in season and hence Key lime pie

At the beautiful and relaxing place

That Brazilian Drink

Cris made the perfect Caipirinhas

Frist the Lemons (all in season and hence key lime pies)

Then the sugar

Then the Other




Roasting on an open fire

We had chestnuts
These are my THIRD favorite types of nuts

Cashews, almonds and then chestnuts

They are starchy (like heavy dry bread) and sweet all at the same time.
Reminds me of this thing in Trinidad which I can't remember the name for right now.... :(

Prop no more

I used this as a prop then had to run home and roast it.

This is the end product...
I put seasonings and herbs under the skin for roasting and thats why it looks so brown.
I marinated overnight.

Vegetarian Wrap

Not Low Carb at all
The wrap is carby

The herb seasoned rice inside is carby

Add Pesto


No Cheese because I want to save the rest of my Grogonzola for something else :)
But the bite I took was really yummy.

I have to be careful
My freezer is getting packed with things I make and then don't eat. :(

These tartlets had gorgonzola which is, after brie, my favorite cheese.

Gorgonzola flavor is a mix between blue and feta and so I love it!

They were yummy.

Eat two and freeze the rest for another time

Yum Yum Yum

A Stew

Tomatoes, stewed down, then spinach, peppers, a little green curry, etc..

It was yummy.
I feel healthy :)

For Salsa

I can't wait

After walking

This was soooo good
I just ate it with a spoon.

That guac was heavenly :)

With sudden confidence

So I had successfully made a vegetarian pastry that I loved..
Decided to do it again

This time I mixed the spinach into the panada with the goatcheese

I am gonna have to admit...I added a little too much salt to the spinach so it kinda was too salty...
I dislike these kind of mistakes but You live and you learn ;)

Tried it and it worked

Spicy spinach, gorgonzola puffs
These were so delicious.
I heated the spinach

Mixed it with gorgonzola crumbles

AND spicy habanero chutney

Then I made the PANADA (for the choux pastry), added eggs and panned them

Like so

Baked them

Then had a great time :)

Soupy Birds

I really needed to relax, so I drove far away alone and walked around
Then I found this place where there were soupy birds

It was so relaxing being there.
I had this

Tomato soup, Chicken Salad sandwich...

They were playing the best music too...I was so happy to be there

And this
This was a sweet goat cheese pastry.

The formulation was this: Puff pastry, goat cheese, sweet potato

Alone is good...

Silver chops

Well they are probably stainless steel

My friend lent them to me to eat with and it started off fine but I was very hungry and it wasn't going fast enough so I ate with a fork! :)

International Food Panel

We were all asked to make something from our countries.
Then present on camera (yikes).

I made fruit chutneys

Tamarind, Pear, Spicy plum and Guava Kiwi

You can eat them with everything and they were a hit! Yay!
Flor-cita brought Puerto rican vegetarian! :)

Rice, Beans, Plantains

Plus we had an array from other countries

After we presented and they rolled tape we got to eat!!!!!!!!!!!!

Great Idea

We needed to relax and that's what we did.
We went here

I explored and explored before we went to go eat
I just felt relaxed


Free from everything.

New Day

New things
I am over it :)
