Galinhada: A Traditional Dish From Brazil

It was time to make another international dish in our household! This time, a friend, Faythe, chose Brazil for us. After a little research, galinhada became an obvious YES! One of the steps was to put the saffron threads in hot water to let them dissolve and make saffron water. I’ve never done that before,Continue reading “Galinhada: A Traditional Dish From Brazil”

Beshbarmak: Kazakhstan‘s National Dish

When my husband and I pick the two dishes we want for our international dinners, he picks one and I pick the other. (Usually, I get inspiration from friends and/or family.) This month, my husband thought about it for a moment, then said, “Kazakhstan!” almost triumphantly. The first thing I thought was, “Fine with me,Continue reading “Beshbarmak: Kazakhstan‘s National Dish”

Kjøttkaker med Brunsaus (Meatballs with Gravy) 23Sep2022

This is the second traditional dish from another country that my sweetheart and I decided to try. This dish is from Norway, which I chose because I have Norwegian ancestry. And come on… meatballs.

Bunches of Lunches

Here I am again, making lunches. I have a few days off (I took the weekend off for the Joyride, and then I have my normal days off), but I still need to eat lunch. I’m doing intermittent fasting, so my lunch is my first meal. I want it to be a tasty one! IContinue reading “Bunches of Lunches”

Roast Beef Roll-Ups

It’s time to prep lunches again! This time I decided to do something with roast beef. I saw something similar online, and it looked great… so why not? This is pretty simple: sliced roast beef, cheddar cheese slices, green chilis, and thinly slice red onion. I really wanted the whole green chilis, but my localContinue reading “Roast Beef Roll-Ups”
