The Ultimate Nacho Platter

If I can remember well, we were only four people the night I made this nacho. I thought I was hungry and I wanted the biggest nacho plate I could lay my hands on. In fact, I had planned to make two plates…wishful thinking. We didn’t finish this one plate. It was just way too filling. I was supposed to top it up with sour cream and green onions and pimento and some really hot pepper sauce, but I was so hungry, so we started devouring and only remembered the extra toppings when the plate was half empty. Have a pleasant weekend! Continue reading

Macaroni and Cheese with Ground Beef

This dish was a hit. For the breadcrumbs I just threw 2 slices of whole grain bread in a chopper and made fresh crumbs. You can use Panko or other fancy crumbs if you like. You can also increase the amount of cheese if you want. I wish you a very pleasant weekend. Our day has started with SUN…..YES LOTS OF IT!

Kheema Pilau

The word Kheema means “minced”. So this is basically Minced Beef Pilau or ground beef pilau. I loved the sweetness of the sultanas (golden raisins) and the crunch of the cashew nuts. The addition of cream gave it an extra special taste. Please do not omit the cream. This week is fantastic. Sunshine all day long. I wish you a pleasant day. If you like I can send you some virtual sunshine. Continue reading
