Tomorrow night we are having an international potluck for the new international students arriving in Bemidji. It's always quite a crowd of excited/exhausted talking-all-at-once people. Maybe this year I'll do better at remembering names?
Here are the food items Mathew and I will be bringing:
- A large dish of chicken curry
- A large pan of vegetarian fried rice
- Zucchini bread
- Salsa & chips or some squash bake/stir fry/etc
I will post recipes...after I have succesfully tried and made the above!
Meanwhile, you may try out this recipe for me and let me know if it is any good. It is from the book I am reading now,
Brazilian Dreams (Sonhos)
"Dreams are little puffy pastries, crispy on the outside adn hollow inside."
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
- pinch of salt
- 1/2 cup flour
- 2 eggs
- oil for frying
- powdered sugar and cunnamon, sifted together
Place the water, sugar and salt in a saucepan, bring to a boil. Add the flour and stir quickly until the mixture forms a ball that doesn't separate. Remove from the stove and cool. Add an egg and beat the mixture with a spoon until smooth. Add the other egg, beating the mixture thoroughly. Now drop small balls of the mixture from a teaspoon into deep, hot oil. Take out when golden-brown, drain on absorbent paper, and sprinkle with sifted powdered sugar and cinnamon.
