4 Food Friday

I love recipes. I read cookbooks for fun ... and yet I tease my husband for reading math books for fun... to each their own. A fellow Cairo blogger Wandering the World posted this meme, which is linked to a blog about Fun, Crafts and Recipes - definitely one to bookmark and peruse later!

Here is my play-along with this week's questions:
#1. Turnips. Love em or leave em?
I am a veggie fanatic - except lima beans, which are not technically food - and I like turnips too. Raw or cooked.

#2. What’s your favorite roasted dish?
Roast beef. Pure and simple. Preferably without anything cooked with it. Just good beef, juicy and fairly rare.

#3. Salsa. What kind of salsa do you like?
Chunky, with a bit of kick.

#4. Share directions on how to make your favorite quick meal, meaning start to finish in about 30 minutes or less.
- Take good steak. Show it to a hot grill - Ssss! Sss! on each side. I like it rare, if you want to ruin yours by cooking it longer, you figure out your own time.
- Serve next to baked sweet potato. Microwave 4 minutes, check if soft, but not mushy. Add time in 1 minute intervals. Remove and wrap in tin foil for several more minutes - it continues to cook and comes out great!
- Simple salad. Handful of greens, cucumber, tomato.

Can you get sweet potatoes? Or is this just a perfect meal fantasy :)?

At the commissary. We usually just nuke the regular white potatoes we get locally. They are actually verrry good. I was craving sweet potato yesterday though :-)

My husband makes an amazing sweet potato curry so if you ever see them on the open market, give us a shout. :)
