Thank God for left-overs. You see, like most of us, I was strapped for precious time. There was no way I was going prepare a dish from scratch when I had more than enough on my ‘plate'(no pun intended).

For me, sometimes left-overs mean raiding the freezer and deciphering the dishes I foolishly didn’t take the time to label. You see, most times, I do try to label each container. It makes it easy to grab and go. I was in luck. It was quite easy to identify my red beans and rice. Tuck right behind in a Chinese delivery container was a few pieces of pork ribs. Hmmmm, I could already taste it. Without a doubt, I knew that the flavors would be even more absorbed in all that fall from the flesh rib.

Whoa! In no time all my main items were defrosted. Oh, micro-waves are so handy when time is against you. Below in the refrigerator, I grabbed hold of some left-over sauteed purple cabbage from a few days ago.  In no time, I devoured all that was on my plate. It was just what my stomach and palate needed.

I'm originally from the beautiful island of Jamaica. In Jamaica, we always find a reason to celebrate. And, when there's a celebration, there is music, fun and of course, food, great food. Presently, I reside in So. Florida.Living here in Florida offers varied cultures, people of different ethnic backgrounds. I've a great passion for the culinary side of life. Therefore, being in So. Fl., provides me the great accessibility of fresh seafood, fruits and vegetables. Moreover, I've the choice to indulge in a amazing foods from different cuisines.This ability provides great inspiration for me to retreat to my humble kitchenette and replicate these dishes.It warms my heart to be able to break bread with loved ones. I'm an avid reader and love to get lost between these beautiful words. I find reading to be a social activity because it allows me a peek inside other people's minds which in turn makes me more empathetic towards others. One day in the near future, I hope to publish my very own words in the area of poetry as well as my other love, food. Yoga and speed walking are just a few of the things that keep me balanced and centered. I love family and friends; and, of course, wholesome foods with a glass of cocktail. Life is what you make of it. And, I try to savor and enjoy the simple and precious moments.
