Most of the ingredients come from the plants and livestock on the farm and the foods are made over a wood burning stove in an outdoor kitchen.
Sign me up for that noise.
Yesterday, Amanda’s ex- pulled up on his bike with a big basket tied to the handlebars. In the basket was a beautiful wheel of fresh cheese and a mouth-watering disk of newly minted goiabada (firm, sweet guava jelly). Thank you Donna Amanda’s mom!
The cheese is so soft and smooth, yet firm, with a clean cow’s milk cheese flavor. Like butta! The goiabada is perfectly flavored without that gratuitous sugar after taste. Sixty five years on a farm has a way of honing your skills. Perfect!
But Luiz and I are just two guys, plus Zozó makes three. The size of the cheese wheel and the goiabada disk are a bit overwhelming.
I’m thinking there is a Romeo and Juliette cheesecake for a party in our future. Anybody want guests?
