OH NO!! Stay back!! I can't believe you evoked the name of the evil sesame noodles!

Now I am going to have to make them!!

Stop teasing me with your weather. I'm freezing my patootie off!!

My wife is working today and gets home at 9:30, she requested Brown Rice, Dominican beans, and Beef stew with all the trimmings in it. Carrots, Plantains, tators and an assortment of other seasonings. Just finished cooking and cheated a little. I usually wait for her to get home and have dinner with but it tasted so good that I had a little bit.

WOW that sounds good. Plantians in a stew wow I would have never thought of that.

Now I have a craving for fried platanos. I haven't had them since I had them at girlfriends boyfriends house (his mom made them). Many moons ago when I was a teen.

Seems like a good day for a meatloaf. Today I will mix in 2 Italian sausage links worth of pork into 2 lbs of ground beef for some added flavor. Will be serving with brown gravy, mashed potatoes, and probably corn or green beans, and some biscuits.

Tried to trick the kids into sticking around for dinner by telling them we are celebrating the dog's 9th birthday which was last week. They didn't seem too impressed so not sure if they will be here for dinner! If not lots of leftovers and the dog will get her own helping!

Dominican Beans, simple, I use pinto beans, I used to get the Goya kind, but now I just get the dried ones and boil them till soft. Cans are ok, but its cheaper to get the dried ones. so here it goes,

a bit of oil on a pot, red onion, green peps, oregano, salt to taste, cilantro, a bit of cumin, lemon juice, garlic, capers, olives. Saute all that in hot oil then put the beans in and add water as needed. I like mine thick so i dont add too much water. Add tators, carrots, platanos once all is boiling. dont add too much carrorts they tend to make the beans too sweet. add a bit of tomato paste for tanginess. I chop up all the veggies into 1 to 2 inches. Its so good I take bowls of it to work for lunch and have it with bread as soup.

I love fried patanos (Tostones), the green ones, not the sweet. I make them for breakfast on the weekends with liver and onions. My kids hate it, but my wife and I love it. My kids are not growing up liking Dominican Food. Its a shame I have so many recipes from my gramma. She used to cook all the time for my grandpas workers in the farm so i learned alot from her.
