The pasteles came out great and after they sat for a day
they firmed up and are even better.
All the flavors have had a chance to relax and find their little spot amoungst each other and the marriage of gastronomy has been consummated.
They are great I tell you and well worth all the effort.
On to other things
Snap peas, baby bells and cheese - how do you say risotto?
I had some snap peas, I have mushrooms (as usual) and I had a small piece of beef tenderloin some arborio rice and some cheese ends so I put on my thinking cap and thunk up a risotto.
Remember the picnic shoulder I used to make the pasteles? Well it wasnt finished so the rest of this will be pulled and used in sandwiches mixed with a little special barbeque sauce. I have been experimenting with all the different regional sauces out there like the mustard version for example and I am really getting a taste for these things -saucy, I didnt used to like stuff like that.
