Apparently, I am dead to my hubby because I lied (not technically) to him about the Spanish “Rice” I made for lunch today. When he asked what we were having I replied, “It’s a type of Spanish RIce”. He proceeded to eat multiple servings and proclaimed it delicious! Along with the taco meat mixture of ground turkey and black beans.
Upon completion of the meal I asked if he enjoyed it and of course he did. Only then did I reveal my little misdirection. Whereupon he decreed me dead to him for lying to him. Alas … I must use subterfuge to get him to eat vegetables. It’s my valiant effort to have a healthy husband.
All of it really was delicious!
My most recent blog posts may make it look as if I only bake sweet treats but I love cooking all types of food. I love trying to make something from nothing or at least something unexpected from ordinary foods like cauliflower.
I riced the cauliflower in my food processor and sautéed it with some onions and peppers, garlic, and an ancho-guajilla chili paste I made a few months back and froze in an ice cube tray. Lord help me I cannot remember the recipe or what I made it for – ugh, middle age. I also threw in some tomato paste, orange juice and chicken stock, salt, pepper, cayenne and cumin, let it simmer for 20 minutes and voila! Delicious!
Needless to say, it didn’t kill him and he actually enjoyed it. If I had told him ahead of time he probably would not have eaten it. Silly man.
Another tasty treat I made last week was a Chicken Pot, Chicken Pot, Chicken Pot Paaiiiiiieeee!
Check out the link https://youtu.be/ApmvDU5RmyY for why I referred to it in such a manner.
Anyway, I digress. I love chicken pot pie. My mama makes the best but I have to say, I make a mean one myself. Yes, I am bragging. I do one thing very well and that’s cook. I have no qualms stating it. Between my mother and ATK, I can cook nearly anything! And the more I do it the prettier things get. Check this out!
