Have you heard the news?

The news about the new spice on the block?

Let me fill you in on the latest spice I spied at the store last week: Shichimi Togarashi aka Japanese Seven Spice.

It is a spicy-sweet combo type of spice that is sure to please everyone.

The blend includes red chili pepper, sichuan pepper, ginger, white and black sesame seeds, orange peel and, even some nori flakes.

The blend reminded me of an everything bagel, hence, the name everything in the title.

When you work at home, you can easily get in a ‘grab whatever you see’ rut.

I ‘accidently’ decided to break that rut.

I grabbed some hummus but found we were out of carrots.

I grabbed some salsa but found we were out of chips.

I grabbed some ricotta but saw we were out of pasta, and sauce.

I decided to whip the hummus and ricotta together, spread it on toast, and saw it looked rather boring.

I decided rather than spend time chopping up some veggies, I would top it with some pico de gallo style salsa.

I was very happy with the result, and so was my husband because he took the second piece off my plate and walked into his office.

Tweens are an odd bunch aren’t they? Stuck between a youngster wanting to cuddle with mama, and a raging ball of teenage angst, that thinks your e.v.e.r.y. move is embarrassing and unnecessary? They also talk funny. Speaking of funny, cruciferous is a funny word. I picked up a bag of cruciferous salad at Trader Joes’ […]

Zesty is a good word. Black bean is a fibrous word. Quinoa is protein-acious word. Avocado is a fruity word. Power is a strong word. Bowl is a vessel word. Combined together, they are a damn delicious series of words. Eat my words.
