Day 8

Today was detox pitch-in day! There weren’t too many cooking participants but plenty of eaters.  My curried beef and baby lettuce cups went off without a hitch or any left overs! I love when people eat my food.  I took a picture of mine again, even though you’ve already seen the curry, you have not seen the adorable lettuce!

There were a couple other dishes that I MUST mention.  Jaime made fried cabbage with chicken, bacon, and onions.  It was sooooo good, I can’t wait to make it at home.  The bacon flavor on the cooked cabbage was so yum and the addition of chicken made it even better.  Next, our coworker Pamela made what she called, “Philly Beef” if I remember correctly.  It was geniusly simple and on point for any wing cravings you may have.  It’s easier than wings and just as spicy. It was ground beef, mushrooms, and onion in a crock-pot with hot sauce. That’s it!  I think the fat from the beef mixing with the hot sauce made it taste like wing sauce, finger lickin’ good, but on lettuce wraps if you’d like! I could not get enough. Also something I can’t wait to make at home. It was a filling food day to say the least.  It’s nice trying new things when I don’t have to make the whole recipe!

Ooo, one more addition to my pantry that I bought yesterday, pistachios!  I think they are going to be the bottom line savior to curb my savory food cravings.  In the shell, out of the shell, your preference.  I love them in the shell because I like the saltiness on the outside and the time it takes to eat them feels more satisfying.  That’s all mental but as they say, “to eat their own” right?

I like puns.

On to day 9.
