Friday I invited my sister over for dinner, in true melting pot fashion we started with bruschetta (Italian), moved onto mole (Mexican), and finished with cookies (Martha Stewart).
I don’t like most tomatoes (they have to be the most perfect fresh tomatoes for me to eat them in non-sauce form) so I used roasted bell peppers with boccini.
I sliced parmesean, garlic bread (both ingredients baked into it) into slices and splashed them with olive oil. I placed the bread into a 400F oven for a few minutes.
Then I flipped the bread over, topped it with a roasted bell pepper slice or 2, and half a boccini.
Quite delicious and a great way to start the weekend.
I do love to eat food from most any culture. One of my roommates in college was Korean and I loved her grandmother’s recipe for soup. I love going out to the Cuban place down the street. It’s even better, in my opinion, when you get to mix them all up (Korean soup followed by pork topped with mojo). I know it’s not quite authentic, and sometimes I do want authentic, but it’s usually a pretty great dinner.
