Sriracha Picadillo…..with Broiled Sweet Potatoes over tortilla chips!

ImageI admit it. I like living a little dangerously in the kitchen…, that red sauce is not ketchup….it’s a healthy dosage of Sriracha sauce!!!!Image

Mixed that in with ground beef, olives, chopped bacon, raisins, and let it cook till the meat was well done.

Had some frozen sweet potato slices so in the oven they went, to be broiled for just a few minutes, with a dash of sea salt, black pepper and cayenne (just a little more heat to accompany the Sriracha sauce!!) and decided to drop some tortilla chips on the plate and put the picadillo on top. 

Delicious!!!! it was a very filling dinner, I must admit.  Now the good thing about picadillo is that you can do just about anything with it….you can put it on top of rice, noodles, or a baked potato or even with couscous!  Or else….just by itself!




Pesto’d Salmon with Zucchini-Onion & Carrot mix, with Marinated Olives!


Who would have thought that I would find awesome fresh salmon at Publix Supermarket for only $5?!!! I ran home and made my own mix with pesto, sundried tomatoes, and a tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil and poured that over the salmon. Using a mandoline, sliced zucchini and onions, and included carrots with black and green marinated olives to cook for approximately 8 to 10 minutes.

The aroma from this dish made me quickly plate it, as I just wanted to dive in! The salmon melted in my mouth, and the mix of vegetables with olives ramped up the flavors, making it one of my new best dishes.

Check out the plate! “Blessed are those who trust in the Lord, and have made the Lord their hope and confidence.” Jeremiah 17:7. Coventry makes these lovely dishes with beautiful reminders from God’s Word.

“They are like trees planted along a riverbank, with roots that reach deep into the water. Such trees are not bothered by the heat or worried by long months of drought. Their leaves stay green, and they never stop producing fruit.” Jeremiah 17:8

I love the reminder that regardless of the circumstances of life, that if we put our trust in the Lord, He will sustain us with hope and confidence for the future.

Have a blessed day!
