Now I have to make Cocktail de Camarones. Which of the two recipes is the best?


You kidding? Mine, of course.

Actually, I don't know. Why don't you try several and let us know. (Then I'll claim whichever is best as mine. wink.gif )

While eating breakfast today with Jaymes at Rio Verde, before going to look at the wedding cakes, I was instructed that this existed. Now I have to make Cocktail de Camarones. Which of the two recipes is the best? Ouch, Jaymes just threw a book at me.

Well hey! You two are finally getting married, huh? Congratulations, both of you!!!!

How about a version inspired by both of theirs? SeaGal made a quite tasty version for Scorched Palate's going away party a couple of years ago. The recipe is here.

You have to ask Jaymes about the wedding cakes. My overall favorites were the first My Fair Lady cake, the Pennys from Heaven cake and the Sunset Boulevard cake. THe Kitchenaid mixer cake was a great idea that needed some refinement. The cakes from the 7 to 12 year old catagory were amazing.

Huh, I thought Jaymes was a little bit older than that. Not much, just a bit... tongue.gif

The real art of conversation is not only to say the right thing at the right place but to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment.

Made the version according to Queen Jaymes. Had to use frozen shrimp but still good.
Leftovers were tossed with boiled nopalitos and will become lunch today.


"Gay people exist. There's nothing we can do in public policy that makes more of us exist, or less of us exist. And you guys have been arguing for a generation that public policy ought to essentially demean gay people as a way of expressing disapproval of the fact that we exist, but you don't make any less of us exist. You just are arguing in favor of more discrimination, and more discrimination doesn't make straight people's lives any better." -Rachel Maddow to Jim DeMint and Ralph Reed

.... My dinner parties are usually very casual affairs. There's always booze. The atmosphere is relaxed. I certainly have no 'staff' to help me by rushing in to clear the table and begin the cleanup. And I'm such a procrastinator that I put it off until the last possible moment. For one thing, I hate to break the mellow mood. So we invariably linger at the table laughing and talking and polishing off the wine or beer or Sangria or whatever we're having. The last of the fish is usually picked off, quite languidly and casually, by the fingers of the people that happen to be sitting in front of the platter.

Rereading this thread, I just picked up on this comment. Defines entertaining for me. Thanks, Jaymes, for reminding us what it's all about. wub.gif
