The best gazpacho I ever ate was in a Spanish restaurant on Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn, La Mancha; which is evidently now closed. 🙁 They also had a marvelous garlic soup and shrimp al ajillo. (Yes, I like garlic.)
Learned this very simple recipe as a teenager working in a restaurant. Few years later I was pulling KP duty during Basic Training & was told ‘go start making the meatloaf’. Not knowing the entire USAF used a standard recipe book, I started making this recipe. The cook didn’t find out I wasn’t following the book until I asked for the Worcestershire Sauce. By that time it was too late to change. It was such a hit the cook used my recipe from then on.
Key Lime Pie – from my family’s cookbook.
1 baked 9″ pie shell
2 1/4 cups canned condensed milk.
(2 14oz. cans Eagle Brand or equivalent)
3 egg yolks
3/4 cup + 2 tblsp lime juice
4 tsps grated lime rind
(I can seldom find Key Limes and they are very small. I use one regular lime and bottled lime juice).
I don’t know of any company that better illustrates the ablity of Big Money to twist justice to their own ends. The legal points of this particular case seem very narrow and hopefully an appeal will stop this bullying.
Meanwhile, all we can do is protest and demand our food at least be labelled.
And fix the recipe(s) of the day 🙂
