Nothing goes to waste in my kitchen. Didn’t have to cook  an iota from scratch. A few days ago, made some spicy turkey balls in a sweet and sour sauce. Though firm on the exterior, they carried a ‘melt in the mouth’ experience to the taste buds.

As always, when I cook pasta, I make an extra portion. Thus, I had those succulent balls with leftover angel hair pasta which still carried just the right bite to same. Lo and behold, discovered some purple sautéed cabbage from a few days ago.  Decided to toss it in the mix. They provided contrasting hue to my juicy and sweet tomatoes and other foods.

Couldn’t help myself. You see, I could consume nature’s butter (avocado), day-in, day out. Glimpsed a lonely piece all by itself.  I wasn’t  going leave that creamy delight in a solitary state; so, I peppered same up (maybe, a bit too much) and made it a part of my dish.

All was well with my palate and I. Like before, my balls served me in a satisfying way.

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.
