I recently read a Latin recipe that called for achiote, so I found a Latin food store and bought some. Now, I can't remember/find which recipe I wanted to make for the life of me!
Edwin & I recently were discussing the idea of growing our own food. (down the road, some garden veggies mostly perhaps!) We found this article: Is it cheaper to grow your own food? (spoiler alert: not really!)
An article about Latin food in Vancouver. Sadly, there are not any Guatemalan-specific restaurants!
Tourism Surrey has a new hashtag project for food! (#TrueSurrey) My Saturday night pizza was posted on their website recently. (have you guys had crazy bread lately? OMG - to die for.)
"Italian Cuisine Worth Going to Jail For" - I want to go!!
Last weeks dinner menu at our house was a bit ethnic:
|Rice and beans, like we had in New Orleans. I think this is an easier said than done recipe.... my beans were fine; they had lots of flavor. But they weren't QUITE New Orleans style. I losely used this recipe. (Guess I'll have to go back to New Orleans to eat them again!)|
I always keep a running list in my phone called "To Make." I think I've mentioned this before? That way, when I am pondering what to make in the upcoming week, I can browse the list and come up with a new recipe or two I want to try out. Some of next weeks contenders are cabbage rolls and/or polenta. Have you ever made either of those? Any cool suggestions for me to add to my list? I love new recipes!!
Happy cooking & eating!
