Last time, I promised you guys (edible) punchy, summery heat – with a pinch of the great, wide world on top. And spicy, exciting recipes hinting at near and far destinations is exactly what I’ll deliver~! Today’s recipe was, in parts… a surprise, to say the least. A delicious little surprise that crept up on me on the back of a grocery shopping trip I went on before getting the necessary amounts of caffeine needed to function properly into my system. My efforts were further hampered by the fact that, in my severe state of pre-coffee-zombiedom, I left my grocery list behind along with my memory of ever writing one.
As Summer is slowly nosing it’s way in, the sizzling warning shots vigorously announcing its arrival usually send me into some sort of a panicky rush, reminding me of all those yummy things I should definitely cook once more before it gets too hot to even think about turning on the stove. This year though, blissfully moderate temperatures and cool nights actually made it possible for me to go about the whole thing with a bit more brainpower and prepare.
