Hey there lovely people in bloglandia you might have wondered what happened to me - well the answer is absolutely nothing. Yup, nothing. After I was eliminated a little too soon from the Project Food Blog contest all the air was sucked out of my sails but I have huffed and I have puffed and I have managed to get those sails sailing again. I have reflected enough and dwelled a plenty and I have been eating things you dont even want to know about. (vegans and vegetarians if the first picture didnt warn you enough I am here to warn you now, back out slowly this post is not for you).
Mondongo is a version of one of my favorite dishes and that is menudo and posole. Posole you know, hominy corn and pigs feet and once you add some tripe it magically becomes menudo. Mondongo is pigs feet or cows feet and tripe and various tropical tubers in a thick and rich broth that I like to have with a side of white rice. (check the wiki link to see all of its variants because just like posole and menudo everybody makes mondongo different- there is no right or wrong way).
Mondongo is also this dance mix if you google it and randomly click things called mondongo.
This link will take you to a recipe and you can make your own and when you are done your bowl will look like this if you did it right. Me, I get mine at any of a number of fantastic restaurants around NYC that serve this up daily. My tart is up for votes here if you still want to vote on something. Voting ends midnight of the 22nd.
