The beginnig of another week…a week closer to Trinidad, closer to Thanksgiving, a week closer to Christmas. Our cricket season is finally at an end. Last weekend was the country tournament and my brother asked me to whip up a rice dish for him for the game. At first I had grand plans to cook this extravagant meal, that of course slowly dwindled as the day went by.
It started with breakfast at a local restaurant, that my niece loves. Although the only thing she ever gets there are the french toast with bacon. She just sits down and says I will have my usual.
The weather in MN has already started to feel brisk in the mornings too. You can definitly tell fall is in the air. And pretty soon you will start hearing me whining about all the leaves, leaves that I have to rake up, put in bags and wait for the trash guy to haul away. OYE I hate all those leaves!
When in a rush or a jam make black eye peas cook up! This is a rice dish that can be vegetarian or with meat.
