Ho, ho ho...green giant. Go ahead and date yourself if you can remember this popular US commercial. I used to race in to watch it. A green giant in the middle of vegetables that I loved, awesome.
Its Christmas. The anticipation is worth the day, alone.
Never in a million years will you guess what this is. This is called Romeritos con Tortas de Camarón, and here is a recipe for you. Typically this is prepared and served like a casserole but I had to do it my way.
We wrapped bacon around everything, including chicken livers with garlic, cocktail franks and dried apricots.
We roasted a leg of goat that sat in a salty juniper bath over night.
Then the skin was drapped back over it then it was rubbed with a chile lime mixture and it was wrapped in banana leaf and foil and roasted for three hours.
I made a cranberry reduction with the pan drippings.
We kept the plate simple, buttermilk mashed potatoes and a couple of slices of meat.
Whoops I forgot about this triple cream cheese that was too creamy for words.
How could I not mention this rich and creamy peanut butter cheesecake with a crunchy pretzel crust.
