The words “company coming” have many different meanings for different people. When our son, Chris Brogan, is the company coming, we know we are in for a treat. And yes, we never know what new adventure he is experiencing and how he will share his excitement with us.
We live in Las Vegas and Chris is in town to speak at Brand Manage Camp. He came in a couple days early to visit with us. We always have a good time with him as we do our younger son Thom Brogan. We are truly blessed to have two grown sons that treat us so well and who are fun to be with.
I don’t know all the Whole30 diet details, but shortly after Chris arrived, he asked to make a stop at Trader Joe’s. It wasn’t just a food shopping trip; it was an adventure. It is true, that Steve and I do not vary our diet too much, but we had fun learning about new foods such as the “Healthy 8 chopped veggie mix.” It has everything to make a meal magnificent. Chris chopped up some garlic that he sautéed in olive oil, then he added the “Healthy 8” for a divine taste delight.
Another exciting find for us is the “Riced Cauliflower” that cooks up like Quinoa. He also sautéed garlic in olive oil before adding the riced cauliflower. Chris says the riced cauliflower also makes great fried rice.
This lovely plethora of food is mostly snacks. Included are Cornichons (tiny dill pickles), Sweet Plantain Chips, Just Mango Slices – unsulfured and unsweetened (they are yummy with great texture), Dried Pineapple Rings (another yummy textured treat), Roasted Plantain Chips, Blenheim Variety Unsulfured Apricots, and Sardines. Smoked Herring and Traditional Tunisian Harissa together can make a meal. Creamy Raw Almond Butter turned out not to be a favorite.
Food is fuel needed for the body. Good food is fuel and an adventure. Good food with and excellent chef is nirvana – especially when the chef is family.
Vegetables mixed with pork.
Do you have fun when company comes a callin?
