Chili, Cashews & Salad

My side salad at lunch today. I had this with raspberry viniagarette, a bowl of chili and a few tangelo slices.Chili (Simply Organic vegetarian chili seasoning packet + cayenne pepper & fiesta chili powder) with yellow pepper, corn and red, black and red kidney beans~

I admit it, I'm a fan of veggie ground. My favorite faux meat.
The further experimentation of my unsalted cashews. Tonight I roasted them with the following: sea salt, sugar in the raw, turmeric, curry powder, fresh ground black pepper, cayenne pepper, paprika and garlic powder. I still have a batch to go! I'm thinking maple roasted for next time.

Potato bread from Grand Central Bakery. Tommy's a fan of having bread in the house, go figure, so I picked up a loaf after work on Hawthorne. I never liked potato bread growing up, but it's Grand Central and they are fabulous, and I'm trying to branch out, so here we go. I always thought potato bread was too thick and yellow to enjoy. Yet this looks and smells good, and I'll try it tommorow night for a sandwich.

Interesting with the cashews. I like my cashews sweet with maple syrup and vanilla. Mmm. Your salad looks refreshing.

that bread looks yum yum yummy. i use to be a big fan of potato bread when i was little.

also, how long do you roast your cashews? i never thought of doing that, but i'd be much cheaper!

Awesome, yet again! I will have a recipe later today. I already posted my Thursday 13 and am thinking of my Thankful Thursday Stuff.

Eatpeaceplease- thanks for reminding me of vanilla for the cashews!

allie-I roasted these cashews for 25 minutes at 325F. I've tried roasting at higher and lower temps, but this has worked best so far.

Harmonia-thank you!

mmmm I love to do roasted cashews for the kids. About once every two weeks or so, I'll throw together a maple popcorn cashew type thing. It's delicious. Those look great.

Have any ideas for dehydrating stuff or tips for?

Harmonia said...


Oh! Have you tried fiddling with that code, by chance? I think I FINALLY got it and wondered if you would be able to post yours (whenever you have your list done, that is)
