139.6…Quick Trip To Brazil
I think I must have had like a 12 hour bug or something. By yesterday afternoon, I felt so much better! It’s a good thing too…..I would have missed the fabulous Brazilian food that my friend made!
My husband and I, along with Lisa and her husband, were invited to our friend, Silvana’s house for dinner.
When we arrived, we were greeted with champagne, cheese, crackers and the amazing smell of Brazilian food simmering on the stove.
Silvana prepared these cheese rolls called Pao de Queijo:
They practically jumped in my mouth. Bread and cheese? Yes, please.
It’s rare that someone cooks for me, let alone sets a fancy table for me to eat said meal at.
I felt extremely spoiled.
Lisa, Silvana and I:
We started with a salad with hearts of palm.
Then to the main event:
A shrimp dish called Strogonofe de Camarao. It doesn’t really matter what it was called because it was delicious.
Ice cream and berries. Perfect.
Thank you to Silvana and Sebastian for an amazing evening!
I wish breakfast was as exciting as last night’s dinner but it’s not.
Toast and peanut butter.
I spent all day cleaning the house. Reorganizing drawers. Answering email. I feel accomplished.
Somewhere along the way I made a tuna sandwich and veggies with ranch dressing for lunch.
I need to drop off my daughter at a birthday party in a bit and then get started on making a new recipe for dinner.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
Have you ever had Brazilian food?
Your dinner does look yummy! I went to Rio for NYE 2000....and the food was super good. also loved the cheese bread! I think I had your 12 hour yuch on Sat as well, really didnt feel well, but it passed quickly. My daughter hasnt faired so well and has bronchitis of all things! ugh. Needless to say, there was no gourmet food or exciting events for me this weekend, just lots of rest and maybe some rice krispy bars??!! Thursday I am heading to Bangkok for a girls weekend, so should make up for this past weekend :)ReplyDelete
