Thanks Hilda, I did a lot of the prep the day before - Gazpacho, Mojo Rojo, and most of the chopping/cubing/etc.

Hilda and nui 'umi 'umi, those both look delicious!

I saw chubs of polenta in the store. I'm sure WalMart chubbed polenta probably isn't the highest quality but I had never tried polenta before so I figured I didn't have anything to lose



Fresh sauteed zucchini, mushrooms, & bell peppers, with Italian sausage and red sauce served over pan fried polenta rounds and topped with mozzarella cheese. Turned out well enough but I wasn't all that impressed with the polenta. It would have been better over angel hair pasta.

I guess I have a fascination for cornmeal mush? I got a wild hair and decided I wanted to make some Columbian/Venezuelan arepas. Kind of like an English muffin made of cornmeal used to make a sandwich on. The cornmeal was interesting - made from "pre-cooked" corn, not exactly sure what that process is? Not soaked in lime (nixtamalized) like masa for tortillas or tamales. The arepas are browned on a griddle first then baked for a bit. They are kind of bland (just cornmeal, water, and salt) so I made the toppings nice and spicy. Served with shredded beef, shredded chicken, flaked salmon, black beans, shredded cheese, avocados, tomatoes, cilantro, etc. For dessert I wrapped bananas, cream cheese, and guava paste in raw tortillas and fried them (sorry, no pic)

Brought this recipe back from the islands

TROPICAL RISOTTO

1 diced onion
4 tablespoons parsley
2 garlic cloves
2 tablespoons coconut oil
2 cups raw arborio rice (risotto rice)
8 oz. coconut milk
Chicken stock, as needed
1 cup fresh cream

Chop the onion, parsley, and garlic, and saute in some coconut oil. Add the raw rice and continue sauteing. Add some coconut milk, chicken stock, and cream until rice is completely covered. Constantly stir the rice mixture and add liquid as the rice dries. Cook until it gets soft and sticky.

Have for many years wanted to put a Rotisserie on my grill.
It's kinda hard to find all the right parts.
Plus the motors they sell in the Rotisserie kits are very cheep.

Found this one at a garage sale for $5.00 bucks.
But had to do some rigging and use some other parts I had.

It was really good!
Chicken with grilled vegies.

Thanks hiltiki,
That shrimp dish you did looked great too.
I love shrimp but my wife does not so don't have it as much.

Cooking is lots o fun to me it is a hobby, passion and even the way
I made a living for 20 or more years working for others and then owning
my own diner called Jacks after my father.
So being born into the business may have been a push to cook as well.
Even worked at Ohio State University cooking for 3000 students a night, we
made pasta in a 100 gallon steam kettle where we would cook 40 pounds of pasta at a time.

I do miss the restaurant work but it is a young mans game and I am not young any more.

So try new things at home.
Grilled, smoked food is WAY better right off the grill.
When you go to a BBQ joint it is just not the same.

Plus when you do many different things in life it makes you a more interesting person
as you have at least some first hand knowledge about weird fun stuff.
And if your weird task messes up you have a great story about the day you Messed up.
