Quick Fix: Miso Lime Marinated Tofu Sandwich with Broiled Tomatoes & Avocado

Sometimes you just want a big ‘ole sandwich to sink your teeth into. I also wanted something flavorful enough to stand up to my delicious heirloom tomatoes. We loved the bite of the crisp tofu with the juicy warm tomato and creamy avocado on a toasted kalamata olive roll. This would be great on toasted multigrain bread too! I was inspired when I saw this picture on Happy Healthy Life.

Quick Fix: Fried Egg Polenta Cakes with Spicy Okra & Tomatoes

Quick Fix: Fried Egg Polenta Cakes with Spicy Okra & Tomatoes

This came out of a desire to eat some items in the fridge that needed to be used. Honestly, I had never had okra before and was inspired to grab some at the Farmer’s Market to try. According to online foodies, it needed to be thinly sliced right before you cook it and pan-fried super hot to sear in the moisture. The polenta I sometimes buy in the prepared rolls at Trader Joe’s or Wegmans, just slice and brown on each side. We had dinner in under 30 min. and no food went to waste, perfect.     Quick Fix: Fried Egg Polenta Cakes with Spicy Okra & Tomatoes #ratingval# from #reviews# reviews Print Recipe Type: entrée Author:...

This is a great quick supper. I was craving Chipotle after a late Friday work day but decided to whip this up quickly instead.

Sunday Night Supper: Nshima, Greens & Beans

Sunday Night Supper: Nshima, Greens & Beans

When AJ returned from Africa, we decided to start a tradition on Sunday nights of eating what the people of Zambia eat 3 meals a day (if they’re able). It is composed of 3 things: Nshima (pronounced she-ma) and two “relishes”, usually beans and greens. Nshima is a cornmeal mush similar to a firm grits or polenta. Zambians eat with their hands, scooping the nshima and then dipping into the relishes. The only addition I make to the Zambian traditional meal is a “Makoua*” veggie- sweet potato. *What the children would yell whenever they saw AJ “white man!”     On the 10,000 acre farm at Sons of Thunder Mission where he...
