I really enjoyed the Czech-Austria travels. Thanks! So here's some Spanish food porn.

DH and I went out to a Spanish restaurant in Crystal City (north Arlington, just south of DC). Full of uber-yuppies. The woman behind me was talking about sample sizes, which is something I know and enjoy. Anyway, dinner.

Very tapasy. Here we go:

Jamón Ibérico, jamón Serrano and chorizo Palacios

Selection of 6 cheeses-
Pasamontes Manchego
Murcia al vino
Caña de cabra
Idiazábal
Garrotxa
Valdeón

Ensalada campera
Salad of conserved tuna, fingerling potatoes, green beans, tomatoes and hard boiled eggs - I skipped the potatoes.

Escalivada catalana
Roasted red peppers, eggplant and sweet onions with Sherry dressing

Coliflor salteada con aceitunas y dátiles
Sautéed cauliflower with dates and olives - It was good. I'm recreating this sucker.

Cordero a la brasa con salsa de romero*
Grilled lamb T-bones with rosemary sauce

And that's it. I was stuffed. Here's the whole menu - our restuarant starts on page 9.

Unfortunately, Jaleo is in the DC area and Las Vegas, but alas, not in Portland. We had a good time. And I even walked 3 blocks. Twice. It was hard.

-------------

fleg, not Art. And aoli sauce will deal with even roadkill - garlic, olive oil, lemon juice, and egg yolks

Turn it into Chili and then eat it with corn chips, shredded cheddar cheese, sour cream, onions, diced tomatoes, and pickled jalapeno peppers.

With all the chili powder, cumin, and garlic you won't even know it's roadkill.

Actually with all the deer and cold weather ya'll have up in Michigan I bet you got some awesome road kill up there. If a deer gets whacked on the highway in winter in Michigan I bet it doesn't lie there long. I bet people pick them up and process them and turn them into ground venison, venison sausage, salami, etc. When it's down near freezing or below the meat won't go bad very quickly.

Find a map of MI and look where Bay City is located. You need not go too much further north to be in the boonies. We see red streaks in the snow and along the roadways all winter where deer have been hit by cars. sometimes it looks like a slaughterhouse.

The few times I've been to Michigan I've actually seen a lot of road kill deer. The deer you have up there are huge compared to the deer we have down here in the south. Not exactly sure why? Anyway I've seen a lot of deer in Michigan. Big fat juicy delicious deer.

Gack, that definitely sounds inedible.

Mind if I leave out the corn chips?

And why wouldn't I put the diced tomatoes and the jalapeno into the chili while it's cooking?

Pasamontes Manchego


Didja know that "manchego" means "of or from La Mancha"? A lot of people think it means "sheep cheese." Manchego cheese is usually from sheep but the word itself is just an adjective. Or a noun. "Un manchego" can mean "somebody from La Mancha." The play "Man of La Mancha" could have been called "Manchego." But nobody would have bought tickets.

To each his own. It's a Petro and they sold thousands of them at the World's Fair in Knoxville, TN in 1982. That was the first time I ever ate one. It's not that much different than a taco except instead of a corn tortilla they use a bag of Fritos.

Pickled Jalapenos have a vinegary taste and thats' not the flavor I'm shooting for when I'm making chili. If I were going to put jalapenos in my chili I'd start with fresh ripe green jalapenos and dice them up small.

I like fresh diced tomatoes on my tacos and my Petros. When I make tacos I use corn tortillas and heat them in skillet in a little lard, then I put some kind of meat, onions, tomatoes, shredded lettuce, and maybe shredded cheddar cheese (but not always).

Like I said, to each his own. I used to eat Petros for lunch at Rafters Cafeteria on the Univ. of Tenn. main Campus.
