Oeuf mayonnaise for lunch -- just hard boiled eggs and mayonnaise, an old French standby which has fallen out of favour.
That's odd... some guy on TT GS had the same thing you did.
We have churipo and corundas lined up, but we decided to celebrate life by toasting each other with some pleasant but inexpensive German dry sparkling wine. Well, you can't just drink without something to eat, so I got out the marinated roasted red peppers, som jamón serrano and queso Cotija añejo as well as some Saladita saltines to go with it. We are doing quite well, thank you.
An improvised Torta Ahogada, a sort of French Dip sandwich, Mexican style, made in this instance with sliced roast pork, a mildly spicy tomato jus; a bit of leftover rice, a side of a cucumber-slaw salad, and 1/2 a homemade dill pickle.
Lunch, schmunch .......... or rather, munch munch munch.
My neighbors have been feeding me all day long! I had to wait for a guy to come out to fix my phone & internet service. Didn't want to eat while he was here, but did gobble an apple to keep my strength up.
Then my next-door neighbor came over with tamales. I could only nibble at them, since I was invited for lunch by another neighbor. We had chicken broth, mole negro, and mole amarillo with some kind of giant shoot in it. It was the shape of a bamboo shoot, but 6 - 7" long. Quite yummy! This was accompanied by homemade tortillas, beer & agua de guanabana. Whew!
After Imec's steak picture, I had to have some for lunch. In addition my son made a delicious batch of black beans and rice, along with home fries. It was a really good lunch, with leftover beans for lunch at work tomorrow, too.
What!? The same thing, yet again? Yes, and it's good, too.This time with a scattering of cubes of boiled beef left from the massive and laborious beef stock on which I spent 12 hours of my rapidly waning youth (?) and energy.
On impulse, we went out to have lunch (¿more on the scale of a small feast!) at Mariscos La Güera. We were early at a bit after 12, and almost the only customers in the restaurant.
We went for it big time, Sra. Cuevas starting out with two tostadas de marlin guisado, a warm mash of smoked marlin fish compounded with tomatoes, spices and chiles.
I had one tostada de seviche de pescado, followed by a double brocheta de camaron.
Sra. Cuevas had a cerveza Victoria and I had two Vampiros, an innocuous loking mixed drink of Tequila, sangrita, lime jice and quien sabe.
My main course was a twin brocheta de camarones; skewered broiled shrimp interlaced with thick cuts of smoky bacon, sweet peppers and onions, accompanied by the nearly ubiquitous ensalada Mariscos La Güera. Cucumber slices, tomato slices, orange slices, shredded carrots and rings of purple onion. I had French fries instead of the usual pleasant rice. The fries were like homemade!
Judith, the affable owner, treated us to a couple of cups of café de olla, a brown sugar sweeted brew that when made well, could stand in for dessert.
Bit to top it off, Águstin, the roving pan dulce man came in and we selected a good number of his delectable wares.
Pictures to follow. (Fast turnaround this evening.)
[/i]. Three of us, in different parts of the world, all eating gumbo.
I subbed nopales strips for okra. I think I may like it better.[/quote]
Actually, that was me twice, though I am sure someone else in this world must have eaten gumbo yesterday.
My son made ours. There was no okra I could discern at all, but it sure was good. He uses chicken and a favorite sausage, lots of herbs and spices, plus onion, garlic, etc, and cooks it for a very long time.
when i was in oklahoma my host family sometimes made okra, usually for bigger meals on holidays... i never understood their fascination, i must admit... (interestingly i didn't mind it in curries later on in india, though it wasn#t one of my favourites there either...)
