Serve It Sexy By Flavour!

Nothing like a light dinner when you have had a long day at work, feeling drained and dang it’s bloody warm out. (that is not a complaint by the way)!

One thing I love to do is always have fresh veggies in the refrigerator, especially for days like this.

Key is trying to balance all food groups to ensure I am getting what is required. Hummus is a great source of protein so added that into the veggie mix instead of a dressing or yogurt based dressing. (yes you will see old white cheddar cheese on the plate, I was craving cheese so I had some).

Side Plates used and set for each person are an added touch.
Healthy Dinner Served Sexy!

As you can see nothing wrong with a light dinner. I personally prefer to have a lighter dinner and usually later into the evening giving myself a bit of time to unwind from that day.

And my hips were moving and swinging to The Electric Swing Collection. A great energetic beat that just makes you smile and makes those hips slide.

Yes, my music love varies and travels many genres.

Pad Thai in Tamarind Sauce

A college and friend who has influenced my cooking!

Back in 2010 a colleague of mine returned from vacationing in Jamaica with her family. When she return to our office she brought me a gift that was Tamarind!

Thank you Lorin!

A jar of preserved Tamarind Sauce , heck I had not heard of this before.

That jar of tamarind sauce opened my palette/challenged my mind (my sister is reading this, rolling her eyes saying, “challenged your mind? What mind!) to how do I cook with this!

After some trial and error(s) I have fallen head over heels for tamarind.

From stir-fry, banana & tamarind ice-cream, deserts, marinades, baked beans and since 2010, always in my pad thai.

Another little secret, it makes a killer martini, daiquiri and mojito!
