This is the Baobab Tree of Kenya also know as the Tree of Life. It is found on the East Coast of Kenya. This tree is on of the largest, they can get up to 500 years old. Every part of the tree has been used from everything from food to medicine. It is also considered a super food!
So I’ve been living in Kenya for nine months now, and let me just say, I LOVE IT!!! It is absolutely gorgeous here!! The people are absolutely amazing!!! The dish above is Pad Thai, you will notice the lack of peanuts, I cannot eat them. I’ll post more pictures of Kenya later!
I made cloud bread, I used a packet of splenda instead of sugar when I made the cloud bread. I topped it with bacon, two fried eggs and hollandaise sauce sprinkled with cayenne. This was soo good and so easy to make.
I made the cloud bread the other day and just popped it into the toaster. I didn’t want to take the time to make poached eggs so I just fried them keeping the yolks runny. The hollandaise was store bought, I know cheating, but I had it on hand and I was hungry so again didn’t want to take the time to make it. I know lazy, but I don’t care! It was soooo good!!!
I sautéed red onion then added butternut squash and sweet potatoes and continued until the squash started getting a little color. I deglazed with pineapple wine (yes I did say pineapple wine), I added some minced ginger then filled with water just until the squash and potatoes were covered. I brought it to a boil, turned the heat down to low and covered it and let it go until everything was tender. I then used my immersion blender to get it to a creamy consistency and added some coconut milk, curry powder and salt and pepper to taste!! This is one of my favorite soups!!! So darn good!!!
So this is Panko Parm Poulet with Potatoes over Baby Spinach in a Creamy Lemon Dressing. Of the three dishes I got out of this box, I like this one the least. I’m not sure exactly what I don’t like about it, but I only ate about a 1/4 of it. The potatoes were good, but not a big fan of chicken breast to begin with. I definitely didn’t care for the dressing, it was just sour cream, lemon juice, oil, salt and pepper. I tasted it as I was making it, and was just hoping when it was mixed with the warm oven roasted potatoes it would help it. Nope, it didn’t.
All in all I would say my first box was a success and I will try a few more!
