Here's the coolest thing for me so far . . . We've been practicing homeopathy for over 20 years and I'm forever lugging about several reference books to help diagnose symptoms . . . BUT NO MORE!!!!! I found the books online at a fraction of the cost and weight of the paper versions!
Here it is now! Right in my very own little Kindle! Boy, traveling will never be the same again!
Anyway, on to the Christmas Eve menu:
Brie en Croute
Cheddar cheese, fresh fruit
Chicago Flat crackers
Salad of romaine lettuce, cranberries, walnuts and blue cheese crumbles, dressed with a pomegranate-infused balsamic vinaigrette
Roast Pork Shoulder with garlic marinade
Black Bean Soup, Cuban Style
Steamed White Rice
Yuca con Mojo (Casava with garlic-lime marinade)
Flan de Leche
Yellow Cake with Chocolate Frosting (made by my sister-in-law, Kathy)
This menu is for garlic lovers. Cuban cuisine is not spicy hot, but it makes up for it with the garlic!
No self-respecting Cuban would be caught dead without a rice cooker . . .
Or two . . . Together they made 15 cups of rice . . .
