Tuesday Twister

Each Tuesday, Wardeh at gnowfglins.com encourages us to share what we’ve been up to in our kitchens over the past week.

Here’s a look at what’s been going on around here the last few days..

1) Pork Stew with Chipotle and Plantains A simple weeknight sort of meal.  This one could easily be made into a Cuban or Jamaican dish.

2) Brussels Sprouts and Ham in Mustard Cheese Sauce Loved this. May try adding smoked black pepper next time.

3) Huevos con Tocino y Salsa Verde I have eggs at least 4 times/week.  Got smart & made enough salsa to last several few days.

4) Chocolate Maya Nut Cake Loved the idea & it tasted fine, but I think I’ve lost my enthusiasm for dessert.

5) Creole Beans and Rice Red beans & rice is one of my standby comfort meals.

6) Cryptolaemus montrouzieri ? If so, this the larval stage of a beneficial predator and not a garden pest.  We’ll see what happens when I introduce a couple thousand ladybugs this weekend!

7) Basil with Green Anole Found this guy hanging out in the basil. His bright green color indicates that he’s a healthy & non-threatened  specimen  🙂

8) Mango Mole The slightly sweet, warm chile/cinnamon flavors were amazing when paired with the tart pickled onions.

Well, that’s a wrap..  let’s go see  what everyone else has been up to!
