Eku no-election and eku Valentine…lol! You know how we Yoruba people have a greeting for everything. We are sorry that we’ve been quiet for a bit, but we’ve still been cooking and eating up a storm.
So Mr. K and I found that we’ve been somewhat carb hungry in the last few days. We love love love our greens and salads and proteins and I look forward to my rice and stew or mashed potatoes once a week but this week, I just felt like I wanted to eat rice all the time and potatoes and all these delicious carbohydrate foods (we ended up eating pounded yam for lunch yesterday).
One evening this week, while making lunch for the next day which was originally meant to be sauteed vegetables and grilled chicken, I kept wanting to just make fried rice. Realizing that there was some left-over steamed rice in the freezer, I decided to switch things up a little bit.
I added a cooking spoon of rice to the sauteed vegetables and I don’t know if it was just my psyche but it was all sorts of amazing and fixed my carb craving without being an overload. It was pretty much a reverse fried rice 🙂 . There’s no recipe for it, just sautee your veggies as you like and add the little bit of carb to it.
I tried it again the next day by adding couscous to sauteed vegetables and shrimps.
By the way, our new favorite veggie is celery. It really does switch up the taste of everything.
Wishing you a
wonderful Valentine’s (we are not fans) lifetime of love. Have a great weekend.
Mr + Mrs K.
