The hubby and I were home one afternoon and it was the day before I was to go grocery shopping. Naturally there was not much left to eat. Knowing I was about to be asked “What’s for lunch?” I went to the kitchen in search of something to make. Looking at the half baguette loaf sitting on the counter and knowing this would have to be used by today or else it would be thrown out, I wanted to come up with a quick sandwich….
Ever have those days you swear your going to stop eating sweets!? You swear to yourself tomorrow I’m not going to have any dessert!!!! I promise! Only the following day to tell yourself one cookie will not hurt or I needed that ice cream I’m low on calcium. Welcome to my everyday challenge. Yes, my name is Trina and I’m addicted to sugar! O.k., now I feel better. Having a huge sweet tooth this dessert gives me my fix without all the guilt….
I remember the first time I tried asparagus. I was twenty years old and wanting to like it, like was not my reaction…I loved it!!! Sitting in my tiny apartment kitchen, I was surprised at my new found love for this vegetable. It’s said that our taste buds are forever changing and I see this as a blessing in disguise. It pushes us to try new things at different times in our life, which we may not have wanted to taste before. If you ate asparagus ten years ago and hated it you should give it another try! Maybe now it will be your new favorite food. I’ve discovered many great ways over the years to cook asparagus and prefer it to be tender, I lightly steam them prior to grilling. Splashed with balsamic and a sprinkle of good quality sea salt just before plating is my favorite way. This can be served warm or cold and makes for a great appetizer or side….
When I say food is my way of showing love, I mean it! My good friend absolutely loves these, any chance I get I bring them to her and await her ginormous smile. I laugh inside knowing she will not share one mini sandwich, not even one tiny bite if she had a choice. She cracks me up!…
Deviled eggs which are just heavenly, I prefer to call them angel eggs! Every Easter I watch these little angels disappear into thin air. Funny to think I did not like deviled eggs at one point in my life, I was just eating the wrong ones. Simple is better in my opinion! Other eggs I’ve tried had too many flavors in one bite and it took away from the natural beauty and taste of a boiled egg. They should be slightly flavored and creamy, not overloaded and chunky….
