Tonight, I got to eat an international feast. And I didn’t have to cook it. And it was 100% authentic. And free!
How, you ask? Oh, just Mom’s Indian/Chinese/Middle Eastern coworkers. They had a potluck at her office and she grabbed all the leftover, I think with me in mind 🙂 Take a look:
We have chickpeas sauteed in some kind of yummy Indian sauce, basamati rice with all sorts of goodness in it (cashews, raisens, onions, carrots?), chinese noodles & vegetables, and homemade naan. NOM.
So, since I didn’t have to cook, I finally decided to make my coconut butter all melty, for easier drizzling purposes in the morning. I followed Kath’s advice: put jar in boiling water, stir, repeat.
Worked perfectly except the label boiled right off! Obviously I couldn’t just stare at melting coconut butter for any period of time without enjoying it for dessert. So I drizzled it on graham crackers.They’re the perfect base for all of my favorite things: peanut butter.. nutella… peanut butter and nutella…
Please forgive the big bird plate. My parents are a little nostalgic for the times when their three daughters were still babies. Maybe they’ll finally get rid of it when I move out (soon! ::fingers crossed::) and she’s an empty nester. Not likely.
30 Rock is so good right now- almost enough to convert me to a TV watcher. Tina Fey, UVA alum!
