Ahhhhhhhh! I’ve been so completely active lately.
Today We competed within a Chinese language take-out cook-off. It was amazing to see the turn out and every one of the creative dishes.
We were necessary to make 250 examples. I understand… that’s a lot of freakin’ samples! I spent my Saturday night time chopping, dicing, and listening to Bon Iver. I used to be totally in the zone. There’s something about the mix of music and food that leaves me feeling completely content. I mean, I REALLY LIKE creating dishes more than anything on the planet. Music music out the rest. I become happiest in my own brain thinking about flavor combinations.
Here’s a sneak peek: Each morning I wake up and search through my cupboards. Last week I came across coconut. I acquired super excited. Next there have been raspberries and coconut dairy in the fridge. Guess what happens I developed? Toasted coconut oatmeal with raspberry coconut milk & almonds. Which was my breakfast. Same thing occurs at lunch time and dinner. I can’t help but simply throw the items I find jointly and somehow allow it to be delicious.
I suppose it could have already been really helpful to have figured all this out four years ago, but that’s not how life functions. Life enables you to work with what you want. It surprises you! And I’m alright with that, so long as I can keep eating items that pop into my mind, then talk about them with you. Cool?
For the contest I wound up making ginger-garlic chinese chicken lettuce wraps with sweet mango salsa. I used to be sure these were going to win. Significantly who doesn’t like MANGO & CHINESE CHICKEN? That combination makes tastebuds dance with pleasure. I promise it’s true.
Even though my dish didn’t win, I’m in fact incredibly happy I competed. Meeting others with the same enthusiasm for food makes me feel just like I might become actually normal. Because I have a strange feeling that watching the meals Network and grocery shopping all the time isn’t? I dunno… I’m simply doing my matter.
Right now I could tell you a very important factor. All I wish to do is relax and eat a big huge bell pepper stuffed with goodness and dripping in enchilada sauce. You know what I don’t wish to accomplish? Finish off my most of my stuff. I believe I didn’t talk about that I’m leaving Washington DC!
Life is completely bonkers right right now… in a great way! SO MUCH is going on. Hopefully I will have some thrilling news to share soon. But maybe we should talk about this another period? My suitcases are waiting around to be packed and I could tell you want discuss these bell peppers which are stuffed towards the brink.
Just take a look at these. One of my favorite stuff I’ve manufactured in some time. I swear all it takes is one bite and you’re in a world filled with deliciousness. That was a serious statement by the way.
By now you should know that I don’t joke about with regards to mexican flavors.
Mexican Spices. OMG. What else?
In my world these are a dream come true. They’re savory, healthy, roasted, and basically just FREAKIN’ AMAZING. Merging chicken & quinoa with enchilada sauce and then stuffing it inside a pepper is probably one of the best decisions I’ve available.
Please get on this level with me. Seriously… somebody needs to.

Feel absolve to add extra enchilada sauce once they come out of the oven
Top with extra cilantro for a great garnish
