Hello, Hello!!! Hope you all had a good weekend! What did I get to do yesterday? I'm even jealous of myself! :-) We went to a private beach near the Hamptons on a jet-ski. It was amazing!!! I always thought those things were, annoying, loud and obnoxious....until I went on one! So much fun!!! And we were so out in the middle of nowhere so there weren't any people to bother with the noise. An amazing time. It's like your on a ride at Disneyland or an adventure theme park. So cool. Will definitely have to try it again in October. :-D In case you all are scratching your head, yes, I'm getting married in October, again. Long story short, we eloped this February and now all the families want a big party. So, if we're going to have this big party, I want a big, fluffy dress. So, we're having a wedding. Small ceremony and then lots of dancing in the autumn leaves. Should be great. Gotta start addressing all those invites though.......:-O
Food has been delicious, I cooked up a salmon sausage stuffed with spinach and feta cheese from Whole Foods this weekend. Scrumptious. $6.99 a pound up here but REALLY good - a nice treat if you can find it. I just put some lemon and dill on top of mine. Yesterday I took the Peanut Chicken recipe from Cook Right For Your Type and made it with......Turkey Thighs!!! They were on sale and already deboned. I figured, "hey if they can do it with chicken, why not turkey for us AB's and B's out there!" It came out SUPER-DUPER DELICIOUS!!! Another success! Please, if you don't already have this book, you should go out to Barnes & Noble and lock yourself to a bookcase and scream until they give you one. Nah.....just kidding, just go buy one where you can find it or borrow one from your local library. One of the best things I've ever spent money on. My cooking's getting so good that my husband's starting to sweat my skills. Don't be afraid of making the chutney sauce for this one. At first, I was intimidated and thought it would be a lot of work. (I'm very lazy sometimes) But, as long as you have a food processor, it's a snap. Pretty quick to make and tasty.
This morning was lemon water and rice chex in soy milk half an hour later. Had another veggie pizza slice at the parlor near work. Thin crust, little tomato sauce and filled with mozzarella cheese, broccoli, eggplant, and onions. Tried a little bit of my new "Soy Delicious" ice cream when I got home, Chocolate Peanut Butter. My initial reaction was "eeewwww...this isn't ice cream!!!" And I was right, doesn't say ice cream anywhere on the package, just a picture that LOOKS like ice cream and the words "frozen non-dairy dessert." But, after the second bite, I found it surprisingly addictive. I'm glad I have it in case of emergencies. (It does still have a few additive avoids in it) And as long as I don't think of it as ice cream but just something sweet, it's a fine fix for those random cravings.
Going to try the swordfish recipe tonight for the big O and have some more peanut "turkey" myself. Maybe fix those organic collard greens I got. I'll tell you if they taste any different than the commercially grown ones. The organic onions I've used the past 2 days are AMAZINGLY different. Much sweeter and a purer taste I just can't describe. Go try some in your next standard recipe and you'll see a difference. Please email me if you have any questions, I love hearing from you all!!! Hugs and Happy Cooking Vibes!!!
