Three foods I really like right now

Like many of you, I go through food phases. Here’s what I’m particularly keen on eating, making, and cooking right now: 

  • Oven-baked ribs. As seen previously on the blog.
  • Avocado shakes. I first discovered these breakfast smoothies while living in Brazil. Here’s how I make mine: Blend one avocado with one cup of milk and 1-2 tablespoons of sugar to taste. Better yet, slice the avocado in advance and freeze for even more refreshing awesomeness. When the fruit is in season (i.e. four times a year), I like to dring one a week, they’re so good.
  • Naan with curry. Here’s the recipe we use. To make it even better, flatten the dough like a pita. Once cooked, coat with olive oil and sprinkle with 2 parts paprika and one part garlic powder to taste. Serve with your favorite curry dish — say a nice squash curry soup, massaman, or any old curry. For best results, dip the naan into the curry before shoving into pie hole.

Readers, what foods are you enjoying right now? I’m always on the lookout for my next meal.
