I've been doing some major cleaning/remodeling the past few days, so I really didn't have the time to post. Honest! But after a week of hard work, this was our treat...

A big pot of Pilau, complements of my mom and a family "technique" that has been passed down from generation to generation for centuries. This popular Minorcan dish is delicious if it's made right...and it's pretty hard to make it wrong. There really is no recipe for this, more like a technique...Some rice, some tomatoes, some shrimp or sausage, some onion, some datil pepper, some water, and cook until it looks right. Delicious. Now it's made me hungry...I need to go get myself some of them leftovers.

Man, what is it with you florida people? Pure Florida is always posting delicious looking treats, and now this. I don't know how much further through your archives I want to go. If there is any more food that looks like that, geesh. Now I'M hungry, and chuck roast will only do just so much.
