Jamaican me crazy….
I am sitting on a beach right now with the sand between my toes, staring at beautiful blue water. I have a fruity drink in my hand, you know, the kind with the paper umbrella. There is no laundry to be done, nor house to be clean. It is so lovely. Wait! What’s that sound in the distance? Oh, it’s reality calling. Now that I am awake and out of daydream land, lets talk about food. For my E.A.T. World contribution, I made Jamaican food. Since I can’t be in Jamaica, I decided to make some Jamaican food. The recipe came from Vegan Fire and Spice. I made Jamaican spiced tempeh nuggets with Jamaican baked vegetables and a side of brown rice. I have not made tempeh in forever. I don’t know why. I always seem to forget about it. Oh my, it was so good spiced for this dish. The vegetables were sweet with a subtle hot kick to them. And the brown rice was a perfect side. I of course overkilled a bit when it came to the servings. I made way to many vegetables. There was more than enough for the dinner co-op and we now have a large container full in the freezer. The meal was delicious and Josh requested I make it again in the future. I have to agree. It was quite tasty.
As of now, we have visited the following countries via our mouth: Ethiopia, Mexico, India, Tunisia, and Jamaica. Where shall we go next week? Any suggestions?
Last night I made apricot date bars. The recipe comes from How It All Vegan. The recipe actually is date bars, but I wanted a combination of dates and apricots, so I subbed half of the dates for apricots. They turned out perfect and made a ton. I love homemade bars. They are so much better than the store bought ones. There are no added ingredients or preservatives. Perfect. If you have this cookbook, check out the recipe.
Well I am off to eat some breakfast and get Arthur ready for dance class. Hope you have a lovely day.
By the way, we are going to have another cold spell this weekend, so I have decided to create a roasted poblano chowder recipe. Stay tuned for a new recipe and pictures.
peas and love….
