Well, as Lily finds herself in Norteamerica ramping up for grad school, I am left fending for myself!
Last night, I documented my dinner.
(Self-conscious aside: Is this a classic example of a blogpost only of interest to the very blogger who blogged it?)
In fact, it was very tasty and I was pleasantly surprised by how complementary the flavors were. It was quite healthy, too, I believe.
Brazilian black bean soup (a rough Central American adaptation), using the appropriate quantities of the following ingredients:
> Slow-cooked black beans cooked with onion, cilantro and bay leaf
> Seared grass-fed beef tenderloin (helps when you can get top grade local tenderloin for just $3/pound!)
> Garlic, onions and diced fresh jalepenos sauteed in vegetable oil
> Bitter orange and lime juice
> Dried oregano
> Touch of habenero puree
> Touch of salt
> Cubed queso fresco
> Thinly sliced and fried flour tortilla
Plus steamed fresh broccoli, Stieg Larsson's The Girl Who Played with Fire and a glass of water.
