I plan on cooking up a storm this weekend. Today, I made bread to use later this weekend for pudding. I also made a cream of mushroom soup. I had some mushrooms that were turning, and as I mentioned before, I loathe wasting food. So, I made the soup and put it in small containers in the freezer to use later. I will use it for future pot pies, and casseroles.
For dinner I made African rolls. It is a favorite dish around here. Josh ranks it in his top ten. It is tortillas, in this case homemade tortillas, mashed sweet potatoes, brown rice, steamed kale, fresh sprouts, a dash of hot sauce, and a spicy cilantro peanut sauce. They are oh so delicious. The boys had rice, sweet potato mash in a tortilla, with some kale chips on the side.
As for the cooking this weekend. Josh was at the discount book store a week ago looking for a book and he brought us home a treat. He picked this book up for me. I have the first book, ‘World Food Cafe’, which is by far my favorite cookbook. To my surprise, the authors had written a second one. So, I plan to cook out of the book and make Caribbean food. Yum! I also found a Caribbean dessert recipe, banana bread pudding. Bread pudding with bananas, toppped with a homemade caramel sauce. Yes, please!
And, thanks to my dear friend DJ for posting her periogie recipe. I am going to make periogies for the first time. I am excited. I plan to serve them with vegan sour cream, and hot sauce. Mmm, mmm.
Hope you have a great weekend.
peas and love….
