Who keeps eating all the food?
It is the same feeling I have about laundry. Who keeps wearing all these clothes?
I love a full fridge (like the recent occurrence above). Opening the door of a full fridge is like opening the door to endless possibilities--all sorts of scrumptious feasts to be created. I have only recently begun cooking again--I mean really cooking with real foods that do your body oh-so-good. Did you know 1/4 cup of yummy lentils is 40% of your fiber for the DAY! Lentil soup anyone? Also, barley is the new rice! I love the chewy texture of each barley grain squeaking between your teeth--well not YOUR teeth, MY teeth. Have you tried passion fruit juice with your scramble in the morning? A must. I am grateful that we HAVE to eat, because it makes it easy to "feed" this passion of mine: good food. A few days ago we tried roast pork tenderloin stuffed with fig and blue cheese--paired with barley and wild rice simply salted and some sauteed kale and collard ("southern greens") with freshly grated nutmeg. Don't get me started. My sweet, not spicy, husband downed a bowl of smoky red chili tonight, even through the tears and nose run (luckily we had that passion fruit juice on hand). I can't wait until Tuesday: seared scallops with champagne sauce, whipped sweet potatoes, and carmelized brussel sprouts. This streak of cooking may only last a few weeks--so you better come while the gettins' good!
