At my brother’s for some family bonding before summer slips away in Florida My brother is an omnivore with a motto of no meal is complete without some meat. First stop off the plane was a the local Publix grocery store for soy milk, produce and fruit as I knew he’d just returned from a 2 week trip himself. I found some lovely Tofuky Coconut Tempeh that I am planning to use with asparagus and a coconut-curry sauce on left over rice. Last night we had black beans and rice with onions and peppers (he added a chicken breast–I added romaine and tomatoes to mine).
A couple other ideas I have is Garlicy mushrooms and Kale from Appetite for Reduction, a Quinoa – chickpea – cranberry salad, and a Summer Succotash cold salad (not all on the same day). I enjoy fairly simple meals at home. Just steam some veggies, throw in some beans and I’m good to go.
This may end up being complicated by my 6 year old great-niece who will be spending time over here next week too. Her palate hasn’t developed as many flavor favorites yet. I will do my best to enlarge it or at least expose it to new fresh flavors.
Off to get my vitamin D straight from the source. The adventure continues.
