Here in Barbados, the ability to make a “proper” dish of Macaroni Pie is testament to your ability to cook and some say it even makes you eligible to be a good wife! You may think I'm joking but macaroni pie-making is a serious matter in these parts. Click here to read the rest of the column and find out if I'd make good wife material (lol)
The pasta of choice for Macaroni Pie is Bucatini but I prefer elbows because of the shape and also because I think more of the sauce gets incorporated into the dish.
In an interview with a friend and fellow food-blogger a couple of weeks ago, I was asked to name my favourite cookbook. My response: food blogs of course! and I know that many of you would agree with me. This dish here of fried beef and potatoes is testament to that answer.
While blog visiting, I saw Salt and Turmeric's Daging Goreng Kanyit (Dry Fried Beef with Potato) and inspiration struck for the beef in my fridge. In less than 30 minutes, I was eating my adaptation of her dish.
On a different note, you may have noticed that I did not visit you this past week and apart from being extremely busy with work, I had some problems with my laptop and I also lost all of my subscribed feeds to your delicious blogs :( I am in the process of going through my previous posts to re-subscribe to your blogs so please bear with me.
