Serendipity, Valentine's Day, and a really good red pepper sauce
Sorry to be a little late getting back to report on the Juicy Kitchen home meal delivery order I mentioned in my last post. I got my days mixed up (not as bad as when I tried to have in-laws over the night a new cleaning person was coming... I thought, a week early). Maybe it's overanticipation.
But when this past sunny Sunday came around and the food arrived at my door in a cheery green temperature control bag, it was welcome all the same. I had my white bean soup and turkey and lentil loaf on hand for a Valentine's Day Monday dinner, and that was a treat. Everything was nicely prepared: mashed red potatoes with just enough skin for interest, loaves with a tasty crust... The best was the red pepper sauce. Beautifully colored, satisfying as a gravy but completely fresh and light. Yum.
And the big chocolate chip "smart cookie" naturally sweetened with banana, dried fruit, a little maple syrup--a crowning touch.
