So I tried those DJ & A Shiitake Mushroom crisps, and they are delicious! Crispy, earthy, salty… Most of my favorite flavours. I don’t know how I’d use them though to be honest. (aside from just eating them) I don’t know if I’d add them to a salad… I wouldn’t add them to pasta… Maybe chop them up and use them as a taco topping?
I did wind up buying the Campania Italian tomato Vodka pasta sauce (which was dinner tonight) & we thought it was good… Not mind blowing by any means, seemed to missing one or two things. Kinda sat in the middle of too many flavours. Not too salty, not too rich, not too chunky, cheesy but not too cheesy… It kind of lacked definition, as in it was an OK Rose sauce but didn’t “move the needle” as they say.
As we added chili flakes and hot sauce to it, it came about a bit… But to be honest I’m still a White Linen Marinara Sauce person, much like Jan in Waterdown is!
What wasn’t middle of the road was the food we’ve made in the last few days!
Spicy spinach potato curry, Red lentil dahl and palao rice? It was all amazing, rich aromatic flavors & that awesome lingering spice! I loved it (though the potatoes were a bit much for my partner, too spicy!) The Dahl helped to compensate for that.
The lentils were still a bit crisp, and very creamy thanks to the Coconut milk; that helped to counter some of the spice in the other dishes.
(We did make a green salad as well, though I’m sure I didn’t have too much of it because I stuffed myself with all of this goodness!)
Ya know what else is good? Dexter, chillin’
He’s getting a little chunky, mucho winter weight…
A treadmill is in his future… I can see it!…
Hmmm, actually I can see this outcome a little more clearly.
Have a great week folks!
