When Friday arrives, my culinary needs goes over the top and a bit out of the norm. Anything is possible. Didn’t feel like dining out. I craved the taste of my humble kitchen. After all, Monday to Thursday, I try my utmost best to eat with a fine balance.
Had a few wings in-house and decided to go ‘jerk’ with same. Went on to use up the packets of Chinese delivery/take-out sauces such as hot pepper/duck sauces along with a few other ingredients like honey, ketchup and soy sauce.
With that amalgamation of spices and ingredients, I was able to turn out some rather spicy, slightly sweet/tart chicken wings. It was like two nations (Jamaican/Asian) meeting culinary-wise.
To go with my jerk/Asian flavored wings, I decided to serve a shell pasta, corn, avocado and veggie salad which could be had either cold or warm. The creaminess of the salad balanced the spicy jerk/Asian wings.
Though my supper was unique combos, they turned out to be perfect culinary partners. I was super-happy.
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.
