The Joy of Comfort Food

Post by dulcinea » Mon Sep 04, 2006 11:47 am

:D :D :D If you were to invite me to dinner, this is what I would like: hamburger fried with onions, garlic and tomate paste, and corned beef with onions, garlic, tomato sauce, olive oil and hard-boiled eggs, both served with white rice dressed up with olive oil, bits of bacon, and a drop of honey for extra impact. For the second course, baked cod with onions, garlic, olive oil and tomato sauce, served up with hard-boiled eggs and tubers such as breadfruit and yams. For dessert: candied papaya slices and slices of guava paste, both served with cheddar cheese. YUMMY! What should I serve you when I have you over for dinner?
Let every thing that has breath praise the Lord! Alleluya!

I could manage it. Kindly arrange your ticket to Nuremberg, Germany, and we'll have a grand old time.

PS, neither breadfruit nor yam is a tuber.

There's nothing remarkable about it. All one has to do is hit the right keys at the right time and the instrument plays itself.

I'm not sure I'd ever eat a vegetable other than creamed spinach and possibly white corn if it wasn't for diet/health factors.

My good friend could identify with you -- the only vegetable she ever ate growing up was corn. She'll eat tomatoes/cucumbers in a salad with lots of mayo -- but forget anything else, diet/health don't trump what she likes. She's willing to pay the consequences. Probably how I'd feel if someone told me my life depended on my eating liver -- yeah yeah, I'll take my chances :)

A slice of beetroot on the burger sounds good. That or pasta, although its impossible to get decent Mexican cuisine here, so maybe tacos.

Take me to a restaurant. I'd feel guilty making you cook when I don't care that much about food.
