ANOTHER Billy Bob evening?????

Howdy doody Berenjena,

Wow! You are one lucky so-and-so to have all those willing and able guys to do your bidding. Your kitchen bidding that is!
You have your live-at-home- cook mr. Chilipepper, the hot tempered wheeling-dealing cyclist cook on wheels and now you have roped in the Scottish Indian Curry cook from Glasgow, living in Bermejo.
Tell me. What's your secret???

I know. You bat your green eyes and loooong lashes at them and they're burnt toast! LOL

You know, if Billy Bob's gonna get serious about this curry delivery service, you may want to help him with the promo by making little felt chefs hats with Billy Bob Curry on them or on a special tag and hand them over as key rings, for his marketing.
Of course Billy Bob would have to understand that, noooo, he can't wear one of those wee felt hats 'cause his head's way too big for that now. What with his 8.something pepper rating.

So he made his famous chicken korma and colourful rice. You know, I associate the word colourful rice with colourful language. I can see and hear it now: Swearing rice with Chicken korma. A mild chicken dish served with hot language.
Heloh my der... You are looking prtty toodeh.(no I did not leave the a and e out by mistake. That's how Indians pronounce dear and pretty)
Want to rrun op wid me to jallallabad? No!!????!! ... Puckity-puckity-puck! (as you know, F is not part of the Indian vocabulary).

In any case, I see that Donaldinho aka Billiy Bob did his best once again. Glad you have extra cooking staff to help out when you need it most (read: when mr. Chilipepper is not doing the jive in the kitchen).

I'm certain he was worth every pepper.

Indonesian dinner at Casa El Naranjo

Howdy Cebolla,

This is about a meal I have to tell you about. We had guests, I must say regular guests, who love food and wine.
The lady, who I will call lady A, loves to cook and is an expert in cooking Indonesian food. So when she offered to make some Indonesian dishes, what can one say but Yes!
It is always a lot of work so she started the day before. The chicken was marinated, the cucumber pickled, the rice soaked, a lovely greenbean dish prepared and some other things.

The food was mainly a surprise for mr. Chilipepper who would return from Holland.
We also had guests who liked to join us as well.
Needless to say that it was a surprise for mr. Chilipepper.

Before we could eat lady A had a lot more to cook, prepare etc.
So of she went to our kitchen and started withe the pots and pans.

I'll tell you what the dishes were but to be honest I forgot the names of evenrything so hopefulle lady A will react to my story and name the dishes.
What did we have: nice yellow rice, marinated chicken with a very very nice peanutsauce. Greenbeans with shrimps, Lady A mentioned that normally she uses the little dutch shrimps but since they don't sell them here she used bigger ones, well I'll tell you it was lovely.
Lady A also made a nice vegetable dish, cabbage, mushrooms, bacon and other secret ingredients. The dish our children loved was a meatloaf dish called fricadel. An over dish mmmmmmmmmm.
This all was served with kroepoek,the pickled cucumbers and dried onions.

I abslolutely loved it and if Lady A will come back and offers to make this food again we won't hesitate to say Yes!!.

I rate this food 8,5 peppers!. The taste, the combination of dishes, the athmosphere it is worth it!

talk to you soon

another Billy Bob evening

Howdy Cebolla,

Yes it has been a while but the eggplant was very busy. So busy with guests that we decided to orginaze a indian evening. Ant who do you call for a nice Indian meal ....
Billy Bob of course. He could start a little catering business. Well anyway. We ordered a chicken korma, colourful rice, onion relish, mint sauce and the lentel dish.
The meal was very nice. Less dishes then the evening at Bermejo but maybe thats why I could taste it a bit better. The chicken was tender and very nice. The rice was a bit different then last time this time yellow/red and flavourend with kardamom and cinnamon. Absolutely delicious. I must say this time I' giving this meal 8.25 Peppers
