I try to keep an open mind when it comes to fruits, veggies, and grains. (I’m a little less adventurous in the meat department.) There’s a whole slew of jellies in the supermarkets, a good number of which I’m not familiar with. So I decided to try papaya jelly last time. It has hands down the oddest texture of any jelly I’ve ever had. The flavor isn’t bad - if you like papaya.
It’s fun to tweak my baked oatmeal recipe. I tried a pumpkin/spice version one week, and last weekend I used bananas and coconut milk. Maybe an apple cinnamon version will be next…
It’s easy to get into an unimaginative rut when cooking for just oneself. Sometimes, inspiration comes in a burst and I like to make the most of that. :) Lentil curry was the result of the most recent burst of inspiration. I was beyond thrilled to find fresh cilantro. AND fresh ginger. The result was quite tasty, I must say. I mean - garlic, onions, cilantro, and ginger? Enough said.
Piment. For those who like it hot.
