Hit or Miss
For dinner I made a variation of Ethiopian Doro Wat. I added some sweet potatoes and pineapple to the mix and it was quite tasty. Since I didn't decide that I was going to make this until I was halfway into the preparation of the veggies I did not have Injera batter ready so I served the stew over Whole Wheat orzo with a light side salad. It was a hit.
For dessert I tried a new approach to my watermelon Boba drink. Instead of using evaporated milk sweetened with Splenda in the drink, I tried Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Breeze Almond Breeze, Unsweetened, Vanilla, 32 oz. along with Splenda and a little fat free sugar free vanilla pudding mix. I liked this version even better. It was creamier and was even closer to the sweetened condensed milk versions we've gotten at Vietnamese restaurants. But I did something wrong this time when I prepared the Boba. I'm not sure if it was a function of boiling them for the wrong amount of time or because I prepared them earlier than I have been and put them in the fridge until I was ready to use them. Instead of being nice and chewy (like a gummy bear) they were starchy. So although the new drink recipe was a hit, the Boba themselves were a miss. I wound up not eating them so it was more like having a watermelon smoothie than a Boba drink.
