The Dictionary.com word of the day that showed up on my iGoogle page has special meaning to me!
(Side note: iGoogle is a personalized Google page that you can use to have a bunch of different websites or applications displayed on one page… Get it if you don’t have it. It’s awesome!)
Anyway, this particular word of the day, “juju,” caught my eye because it is the nickname that my dad gave me when I was little. He still calls me Juju to this day!
Seeing my nickname on my iGoogle page got me thinking about other nicknames I’ve had throughout the years. My past and present nicknames include:
- JB (my initials)
- Lil’ Squirt (Ryan is “Big Squirt” and Sadie is “Dog Squirt”)
I know I have some other nicknames I’m forgetting, but those are definitely the most common.
Lunch today was a little unusual.
I was intrigued by a box of Turtle Island Foods coconut curry marinated tempeh strips.
Though the strips are meant to be sautéed and used in a stir fry, I used them in a simple sandwich.
I topped an untoasted whole wheat English muffin with the strips and served it alongside a sliced green pepper and roasted, salted pistachios.
Now that I’ve tricked my taste buds into liking curry, I absolutely loved these tempeh strips.
They were very flavorful and pretty filling, too! One serving of the strips has 13 grams of protein. Not too shabby!
Tempeh, you may be devoured more often. Watch out! 😀
