I had some pent-up energy in reserve. You see, I had been kicking up some moves earlier on this morn.
With all that pep and happy hormones flowing, I decided to take them over to my humble kitchen. Breakfast was on my mind. Had some take-out Szechuan chicken (which by the way was supposed to be spicy, it wasn’t). Oh, I wasn’t happy. What were they thinking? It has been the second time. Of course, along with same was some steamed white rice. Had a little of that and still had a large portion in place.
I had a plan; a perfect one. Decided to make-over my Chinese dish. First, I abandoned the rice. Maybe, I’ll use that for a few rice balls sometime. But anyway, I fetched my whole-grain wrap. It was quite a large size and packed with 30 grams of whole-wheat. I was happy.
The chicken thigh pieces in the Szechuan dish were quite tender and flavorful. The dish also consisted of mushrooms, bell peppers, bamboo shoots, onion and broccoli which were still crispy. I heated my left-overs for a few minutes stove-top and added a serving of broccoli I had in the freezer.
I smiled as I watched the ingredients soaked up the brown sauce. I layered same on my whole-grain wrap and folded my way to an awesome and delectable place. Deconstructing was a very good idea. I bit in my wrap and used part of the wrap to soak up oozing sauce that escaped.
All I needed was a cup of hot java. I was over-the-moon. Salud!
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.
