Tonight's Dinner

Tonight's dinner doesn't have a recipe because there isn't one but it's simple enough. I had thawed some sausage and wasn't quite sure what I was going to make. Then I remembered in the cabinet some "Sofrito" that my friend Tara introduced me to. She's the one that won the last food challenge (Comfort Foods). If you checked out the food challenge here you will notice she contributed a lot of Latin influenced foods. She's married to a really neat guy, Angel, who is of Puerto Rican heritage, hence the great food! LOL. Anyway, this stuff is G-double O-d.
Good! I found mine at my local Publix. Just check in the ethnic food aisle. I had some bacon left over from the baked potato soup (I cheated and bought the packages of already cooked real bacon) and threw that in for good measure! LOL. Oh! and some extra frozen onions and peppers - we like cooked peppers and onions, what can I say! LOL. Just cooked it on top of the stove and that's all folks! It was "quite tasty" as hubby said! LOL

Here's what the Sofrito looks like....


  1. that looks interesting...ok im hungry now gotta go eat some breakfast!!!!

  2. Oh, Jeanette, Angel would be so proud!! You know a lot of latin recipes call for adding bacon or pork fat to the dish...so you nailed it!

  3. Tara - hmmm... well, maybe there's a latin in all of us? No, wait, I'm in the SOUTH, that means pork fat is a dessert! LOL

  4. Hey, I'm so glad you went & looked up my Plant City post! How neat that you know all about SE too & yes, I was one of those students who attended Lakeland 1st Assembly before it moved. Small world!! Wish I had a Cuban from there now, they were so good. All my relatives still live down there on my mom's side.

  5. Oh, and I'm sorry but don't recall a prof. with a volkswagon like that, although there were some characters there. My cousin taught there for many years. He's younger than my dad, but is my dad's nephew, was there for prob. 25 years as a professor.

  6. This sounds wonderful -My Mom could also put stuff together like this. I'm going to have to look for that Sofrito at the store.


I love your sweet comments and read them all. Please let me know you were here!
