Last night I went out to Dali with a friend - hadn’t been in a long time, so it was perfect timing. We started with Pato Braseado (duck in berry sauce). Julio had them pick out the largest leg/thigh combo for us and it was perfectly cooked.
Also Patatas Alioli, chunks of roasted potatoes with a garlic-caper alioli drizzled on top, and Croquetas de Jamón, which was fried croquettes of Serrano ham and Manchego cheese served with an amazing tomato jam.
Second round was Gambas con Gambardina (deep-fried Saffron Batter Shrimp with a garlic-parsley Mojo sauce) and Solomillo en Tostada (beef tenderloin on grilled toast with roasted red pepper…extra Mojo is great on this!)
Libation was Dali’s red sangria, and dessert was Churros with Catalan Crema and chocolate sauce for dipping, and Cuarenta y Tres.
Let’s just say I slept in today. LOL There was a good regular season ending by the Patriots today.
Easy dinner tonight - a tub of chili pulled from the freezer, put on top of some elbow noodles as my stepfather always did, topped with grated Rum Runner cheese from Whole Foods and a hefty dollop of sour cream.
There was wine.
