Happy Monday & Back to Work!

Happy Monday and Back to Work!

I will admit, that’s not Apple juice. It’s Scotch on the rocks. I think it is ok to bring a little vacay or holiday spirit back to work. Let’s be real, some of us think it’s 2020 all over again and need a strong one. Let’s try not to think that way though.

Of course numbers will sky rocket for January. Try to ignore it. We just concluded the biggest holiday of each year with lots of travelers. Continue to wear your mask and sanitize. Arrange to get your booster if you haven’t yet and remember that we can’t put our lives on hold until 2025 or however long this will last. You will be left behind. Notice I haven’t mentioned what ‘this’ is. We are moving forward.

For those of you like me with a never ending ‘To Do’ List. Let’s not obsess over it. As you check things off, more things will naturally replace them. Get to it when you can. Be confident you are doing your best.

Oh and I really hope they keep the kids in school. Cheers to Monday and have a great, productive week! 🥂

Suga Taster, Randy had Rainforest Seafoods’ NEW Poke Bowl for Lunch!

20200712_213643

Last Tuesday, Suga Taster, Randy Burgess ordered Rainforest Seafoods’ NEW Tuna Poke Bowl for Lunch. He thought it was definitely filling, as it had a healthy serving of Veggies: carrot, cucumber, radish, snow peas and Edamame. Additionally, it had a good serving size of Tuna and sticky Sushi Rice. The Tuna was spicy since it was drizzled with Sriracha sauce, but the Veggies cooled down the palate and everything was fresh!

Was it Value for Money?

Randy thought the cost was way too much with delivery, but tasted good. By ordering through the Pekkish App, the Tuna Poke Bowl costed $1960JMD, but $2754.00JMD when delivery and service charges were added.

Any Suggestions for Rainforest Seafoods?

Suga Taster, Randy would love to see a Salad option with no rice and an option to pick up at the Crossroads branch.

Rainforest Seafoods also offers Smoked and Cooked Salmon Poke Bowls, Raw and Cooked Rolls, Sushi Platters and Bento Boxes (Japanese Lunch Boxes)  exclusively through Pekkish Jamaica in Kingston for delivery and in Montego Bay at the Seafood Market, which offers Free Delivery.

Baked Rabbit!

Baked Rabbit with sides of Baked Carrot, Sweet Pepper and Irish Potato

Last Sunday, my husband, Randy had put on a show in the kitchen.

He surprised me by coming home with some Rabbit that he and his family raises in Jacks Hill. He said we were going to have a Rabbit Feast. That we did! I am a proud wife indeed. He is no stranger to the kitchen, but he didn’t need much pointers after all.

Baked Rabbit fresh out the oven!

The Rabbit was baked to perfection. It could have used some Jerk seasoning to be completely over the top, but that’s my fault because I didn’t restock the kitchen in time.

The sides that were baked with it such as Carrot, with no offense to the rabbit, Irish Potato and Sweet Pepper, were great to have with it as well.

Quite a healthy meal too!

Reasons why Rabbit Meat is considered to be Healthy:

● Rabbit meat is the Leanest meat of all Proteins

● Rabbit meat has fewer Calories than other meats

● Rabbit meat has a high percentage of easily Digestible Protein

● The Sodium content of Rabbit meat is less than others, it is almost cholesterol free and it has more Calcium content than other meats

Did you know that Calcium helps to break down fat?

● Rabbit meat is one of the best White meats available on the market today

Important Tip to know when Eating Rabbit:

Do not try to eat the Bone. It’s not possible. You may break your teeth.

Where can you get Rabbit meat to cook?
