Home Cooked Dinner, Octopus style
Nothing too fancy: couscous (With cinnamon, slivered almonds, and a dab of butter), vegetable tagine (carrots, sweet potato, butternut squash, zucchini, chickpeas– dried, not canned, raisins, dried apricots, preserved lemon, onions, as well as an endless list of spices, spicy shrimp with garlic, cumin, ginger, paprika and hot pepper, and finally, salad with blood oranges.
Not all of them are shown here, but the candidates for tasting were: Trader Joe’s crunchy peanut butter (if this were a scientific experiment this one would be the control), PB & Co’s Cinnamon Raisin, and PB Loco’s Choco Banana and Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough. Of course the Chocolate Chip Cookie dough won the contest… when chocolate and cookies are involved, the outcome is kind of inevitable.
(The rest of my The Heat is On sample from PB & Co was ignored… too weird for dessert)
I didn’t have any peanut butter for dessert because, well… I eat it every morning.
I really must expand my menus. Couscous is a good go-to meal, but what will I cook next (for company)?
PS. According to Henry, I am badass in the sense that I can handle a cleaver.
