The boys arrived back safely this morning. I look forward to handing back the tree.
The boys are on the way back. You can track their progress at https://flightaware.com/live/flight/QFA322.
While I'll be glad to see them, I feel a bit sad their trip is coming to an end. Needed some comfort food so re-made "Camarão no Leite de Coco". It was just as nice as the first time.
We're back in Wellington and I was keen to try something Chilean and that didn't involve the BBQ. The empanadas were very tasty mince pies. The salad was refreshing - I always like coriander in my salad.
The boys are hopping across the Argentine/Chilean border so regularly that I don't know what I should be cooking.
The boys have actually left Argentina but I haven't got my act together and researched Chilean recipes yet.
The black bean dish was delicious. I think I will be making that again. Chimichurri is ubiquitous in South American dishes. If you spread the green paste on your weetbix you could claim to have had a South American breakfast. Not so common is the Red Chimichurri I made today.
Argentinean lentil stew. Unusual ingredients for lentils : Apple, BBQ sauce. It did taste good and we are looking forward to finishing the left overs.
Dimitra and I are still enjoying the good life out here in Raumati but our minds are on the boys and their gangster escapades in Rio. Luckily they have moved on to a hopefully safer destination.
Our first Argentinian (or is it Argentine) meal was scraped together from the contents of the fridge and fresh Kapiti caught terekihi from my fishermen uncles. A link to Jamie Oliver's contribution is shown below. The BBQed turnip and pepper are mine.
