Some Road’s End Organics shells & “chreese” – fabulous stuff, it really grows on you. Near East lentil-rice pilaf (love this company). And two interesting Indian dishes: Delhi Saag (spinach & mustard greens with ginger and peppers) & Punjabi Chhole (spicy, tomatoey chickpeas, potatoes, & onions). I was looking forward to branching out and trying something new – and I love the convenience factor of all of these foods.
Goodies! Some oat & chocolate “Cowboy” cookies, two kinds of Mary’s Gone Crackers crunchy treats (the curry “Sticks & Twigs” are pretty darn good!), two Primal Strips, a moist and lovely granola & cacao bar, and some little gluten free oatmeal cookies.
Sharing my love of tea was definitely the right move: Sam gave me some samples of delectable teas including coconut creme (tried this one today – BOMB), Mexican chocolate, and Irish breakfast. These are sitting in my desk at work, waiting to be assembled into the perfect afternoon pick-me-up. And a sample of chipotle cayenne Parma!, which I have yet to decide how I want to use… *muah ha*
Having craved some mac & cheese like WHOA lately, I first whipped up this boxed delight, adding some cheddar-style Daiya for good measure. This stuff is beyond fantastic. The spices in the sauce mix really add some complexity – a much deeper flavor than Amy’s frozen entree. I want about 8 more of these bowls in my face. Now.
