Tuesday, March 19th.
Its a cold one. Just when we thought Michigan weather had our back, it grabbed a butcher knife and jabbed us with our heads straight forward.
Damn you Michigan and your cheap shots, Damn you!
Went shopping, totally stocked up everything.
that's Jones, she guards the stash.
Tonight I reheated some of the massive gallons of soup I made yesterday, and this masterpiece:
Straight Up St. Andrews Stirfrizzy
Its simple, Just some Basmati rice, Vegan grill strips with crush red pepper, ginger and garlic. Cooked with Tamari, a splash of organic ginger sesame sauce, and raw sesame seeds. It has squash, broccoli and portabello mushrooms.
on a side note, ever heard of Mangosteen?
Let me introduce my new found friend that I now fiend for;
The exact place of origin of the mangosteen (Garcinia mangostana L.) is unknown but research indicates it probably occurred somewhere in the Malay Archipelago. Native species may still be found growing wild on some islands. The majority of today’s mangosteen cultivation occurs in Thailand with smaller areas of cultivation throughout Southeast Asia.
Mangosteen is typically advertised and marketed as part of an emerging category of novel functional foods sometimes called "superfruits"    presumed to have a combination of 1) appealing subjective characteristics, such as taste, fragrance and visual qualities, 2) nutrient richness, 3) antioxidant strength and 4) potential impact for lowering risk against human diseases.
By the time it gets to me, it looks like this. Freeze Dried to perfection.
Freeze drying food is cool because it locks in all the nutrients, unlike dehydrating. They taste very crunchy, and have a nut similar to an almond. I can't get enough.
Until we meet again...
