- 2.5 T of molasses (instead of some crazy brown sugar Splenda!)
- Light rum instead of dark (it’s what I had!)
- Grated ginger instead of chopped (I find pieces of things in glaze to fall off and make a mess on the barby!)
- And used finely ground fresh coffee instead of instant coffee granules.

So, here’s the quick run-down from last week’s share.
CSA mystery half-share box 1-9-10:
- green beans
- bok choy
- 3 green peppers (!)
- French breakfast radishes with green tops (2 bunches!)
- eggplants (2 small)
- betel leaf
And last, those nasty little betel leaves! haha! THIS TIME I’m going to cook the little buggers and not make the same mistake I did before, leaving them raw and unedible in a salad! I’m thinking I might wrap something in them??
That’s it for today and I think that’s quite enough! Fellow Miami CSA peeps, time to come forth and COMMENT! Ciao, darlings, La Diva can’t wait to hear from you!cooking class, cocktails, parties, cocktail party, Miami, coral gables, events, bartending class, cocktail class, Laura Lafata, Miami Beach, miami cooking classes, bachelorette parties, bachelorette party, personal chef, corporate events, catering, personal chef, party entertainment

Also, the weather is a bit cooler, you can feel that “nip” in the air and short, dark days are just around the corner! To La Diva, “autumn weather” is what we LIVE FOR in Southern Florida! Our winter is really the same as a midwestern summer: lovely warm days and cool nights where one can actually open the window and get some fresh air and once in a while you might need to put on a sweater!
La Diva’s Tandoori Roasted Pork Loin Salad with Mint Raita Dressing!
One pork loin
1/2 c plain yogurt (I use Fage Greek style non fat)
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 inch knob ginger, grated
2 heaping tablespoons Patak’s tandoori curry paste
1/2 tub plain yogurt (see above)
1 small seeded and peel cucumber (you may omit, I didn’t have any on hand the day I made it!)
1/2 small white onion, grated
ground coriander, cumin and salt
fresh mint leaves cut into a chiffonade
Puttin’ it all together:
YOU ARE LOVED.

- bell peppers
- imported grapes
Roasted sweet potato and black bean salad with cumin and coffee rubbed pork loin*
Pork and rub ingredients:
One small pork loin roast or do what La Diva did and cut a large one into thirds! (about 1.5 lb. piece)
finely ground coffee (make sure you grind this very finely to a powder or else it will only add a bitter taste and burn)
freshly ground black pepper
Combine ingredients to taste and rub over entire loin. Refrigerate and take out about a half an hour before roasting.
Roasted sweet potato black bean salad:
1 large sweet potato, peeled
1/2 can rinsed black beans
1/4 red onion, diced finely
3 T cilantro
juice from one lime
extra virgin olive oil
Salt, pepper and ground cumin to taste
Puttin’ it together:
This salad is full of color, protein and is low carb to boot! And La Diva is lovin’ the crunchy texture of the peppers with the light crunch of the roasted yams.
*This salad is BIG FELLA APPROVED and meets the strict satiety guidelines of DJ Nevah L8!
