The Faces and Food of Carnival 2016

Carnival 2016 is now a fond memory and I'm sure most of the revelers are in 'recovery' mode. Here is a sliver of Tuesday's activities 'down on d Avenue'.

She Made History

Janelle Penny Commissiong was the first Black woman crowned Miss Universe in 1977.  She's a fellow Trini, a 'sister of the soil' (Trinidad & Tobago) and we're all very proud of her.  Here is the video of her 'crowning' moment -

Chinese Beef in Orange Sauce

Just in time for the Chinese New Year, which is only 2 days away. Thanks to +Azlin Bloor​ for the yummy post and the simple recipe.

h/t to +Brooks Walker​ for putting it in my stream. :)

Chinese Beef in Orange Sauce

With Chinese New Year just 2 days away, I thought I'd fit in another quick recipe, in case you're still planning your menu or just fancy some Chinese for the weekend!

This dish is brimming with all sorts of flavours - salty, sweet, sour and a touch bitter - just perfect with some steamed rice or as part of a bigger meal with noodles or egg fried rice. 

We're off to watch a dragon dance this afternoon, well, that's the plan, the clouds are looking a little cantankerous at the moment, so who knows?

Whatever you're doing, have a great Saturday!

Full recipe:

A tasty and healthy Avocado Salad from the incomparable +Amira Elgan​.

Avocado Salad.

This is basically a take on pico de gallo with a few modifications and additions to make it a salad. I created this recipe while living in Barcelona near the famous La Boqueria. I used to go shopping there everyday for ingredients to make our meals and it was always super inspiring.

Like all banks in Trinidad and Tobago, get there when they open or you will be standing in long lines. The tellers are fast and efficient, but sometimes it's sheer volume of the customers that can slow things down.

This is one of the largest Farmer's Market in Trinidad and Tobago. The venue has vendors inside and outside selling their produce and all of the goods are all fresh and inexpensively priced. I would highly recommend it.

Good customer service and the tellers are very efficient. However, don't go to the banks in Trinidad and Tobago on or about the first of the month, because that's when most of the local pensioners go to the banks to cash their pension checks.
