Happy Tuesday! It is 91 degrees outside and humid. I just went for a three mile run and thought I was going to pass out. So I turned around and came home. We spent our Sunday unsuccessfully fishing on the Missouri River. At least we had a nice day. What a beautiful North Dakota weekend we had. Friday we stayed home. It was so nice to be home again. Saturday, I accomplished a ton. When you get married, you have so many new gifts that need to find a home in your house, old things that need to be donated or thrown away because you got an upgrade, and that means a lot of trash, boxes, gift bags, that need to be thrown. After a fun trip to Target, I spent the day washing new bedding, donating old towels, hanging new shower curtains, trying to put together a shelf, cleaning out the “wedding room” and turning it back in to a guest room, and making stew. Stew in the middle of June? Am I crazy? (Don’t answer that.)
I got this six quart Dutch oven as a wedding gift and have always wanted to have one. I see Giada and Ina use them all the time. I went online and Googled healthy Dutch oven recipe, found a beef stew, and went from there. It was OK. Not the best, so I’m not sharing the recipe. If you really want it, contact me!
Coco bread is what they call it. I describe it as a round piece of dough, folded, and then folded again.
Here is how you make it. I ate this at every meal, and at lunch they made panini’s out of it. It was great. So Friday night I made four portions of Coco bread.
I enjoyed my first one with some yogurt butter on it and the second one at lunch the next day. I put mustard, pepper jack cheese, and turkey on it and pressed it in my panini maker. Delicious!
I enjoyed the Jamaican food. I loved the abundance of spices in each dish. We tried goat curry, fish in coconut milk, coconut water (straight from a coconut), and had plenty of fruit punch.
