I'm thinking with the right folks that could be quite entertaining!

We had three comedians and the last guy was a doozie. The look on some peoples faces at his dirty stuff was priceless, but he was super funny.

And for some reason a lady was walking around with Christmas lights braided into her floor length (yes, to the dern FLOOR) hair and one guy was in a Christmas themed adult onsie. Good times.
We ended up leaving super early, but the beginnings of it proved to be.. interesting. I'm never sure what to expect when I meet those types of people.

Not sure what we're having for dinner tonight. I could really go for a bagel and cream cheese, but I don't know if DH will go for that.

My boss took me to the Chinese/Thai restaurant for lunch. I had mango sticky rice (who says you can't eat dessert for lunch!?). Now my dad just called and wants to take me there for supper. Hmmm. I will have to try hard not to have dessert yet again. : )

We are having tortellini and sausage soup with crusty rolls. It's something that can be eaten by the many moving parts that are tonight's schedule.

I forgot the sweet Italian sausage for the meatloaf. Surprisingly it was still tasty. I'm not a fan of just beef in my meatloaf.

Tonight we had turkey noodle soup with leftover turkey and broth I made and froze after thanksgiving dinner. Corn muffins on the side. Sugar cookies with red and green sprinkles as a snack

Making white chicken chili tomorrow, I am in the mood for soups/stews lately. Probably make more christmas cookies too....hmmm which ones?

This past weekend we went to my husband's company holiday dinner party at a nice place called the Capital Grille. We had shrimp, wagyu beef, calamari, and lobster cakes for appetizers. I had salmon on a cedar plank with tomato and fennel relish, but I think I was the only person there that didn't order steak. Lots of sides served family style. Desserts were platters of coconut cream pie, chocolate espresso flourless cake, and cheesecake with a creme brulee type top and berries. Oh it was so divine.

Pao de queijo is delicious, spring! Very similar to Colombian pandebono and pandeyuca. Plus they're gluten-free, which is nice!

Mr. Spring came in the kitchen and when he spotted them he said "What's THAT?!?", proceeded to eat 3 and declared them delicious.

I've never had them before so I didn't know what to expect, but I liked them and plan on looking around for variations on the recipe since I have a bag of tapioca flour to use.

Dominican hojaldras are also made with yuca starch (tapioca flour), and this is becoming a lost Dominican recipe (searching led to a single article about them in a newspaper pointing out how people under 25 in the DR don't know what they are).

Most people don't know what they are, but my mother remembers them fondly. We have a tattered home economics book from the 1940s or so that has the recipe for them. Maybe I should make some to keep them alive.

Hojaldras: These are commonly referred to as Panamanian Doughnuts. Essentially there are dough that is deep fried and then covered with sugar on top. A sweet snack to start off your day.
If that's what you're talking about, I'll take two.

And I have to tell you when I googled on page two the Pioneer Woman's site came up. Oh, how funny.

No. The Dominican hojaldra is very different from the Panamanian and Colombian hojaldras/hojaldres/hojuelas.
They are made with wheat flour and are fried. Dominican hojaldras are baked and made with the starch of yuca or a tuber called guayica.

If you search for hojaldra and yuca, you will find a single article that is relevant. This one:
http://ecoportaldominicano.com/culturadominicana/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=2694: la-hojaldra-un-dulce-criollo-y-tradicional-que-ha-ido-perdiendo-su-sabor-original&catid=55:nuestras-costumbres&Itemid=77

There is a photo.
The article points out that if anyone is making them now, they're using wheat flour and cornstarch and not the traditional yuca.

You KNOW it's getting scarce if the internet barely has any reference of it.

I'll still take two.

Exactly! I should make some. Someone needs to keep traditional dishes alive!

I think I'll be getting that book. The SO loves dumplings but I can't stand the frozen ones. He says they're just ok, good for a fix when he's craving them.

Missbanjo, it's a great book. I like that it goes into making the actual doughs instead of telling you to use frozen. Andrea Nguyen is a really good cookbook writer.

Having said that, restaurants like White Bear and Lao Bei Fang here make awesome dumplings and sell them frozen and they're very cheap as well, so lots of people buy those. I don't know about supermarket dumplings.

All I can think of eating is tofu and broccoli with sticky rice. Last week I replayed some fond memories of my childhood friend's house and my favorite meal to eat there.

I've eaten it twice already this week and now I want to make more. Today isn't the day, though. My Goddaughter's winter concert is tonight, and I won't be home until after 8.

A lot of WDW recipes are available online (they have a printed book). You might want to try this Greek Fishermen's Stew with Garlic Crostini Kouzzina by Cat Cora - Recipes - Foodbuzz
Oh good link Goldy! I'll definitely keep that one. I had found the recipe here Greek Fishermen's Stew with Garlic Crostini Recipe - ABC News but I wanted more variety.

I didn't find in-shell clams but did find the mussels I know I've never seen in the seafood freezer.
