This week, I decided that we were going to learn how to cook plantains. I have had them before in Jamaica (and enjoyed them), but I have never eaten them successfully here in the States. Mr. Bishop had some great recipes. First we made the "sauteed plantains". The kids and I could not put them down. Then I made the "Baked Plantains", but I was the only one who enjoyed them. I am ok with that!
I still have two more yuca recipes to complete, and I made the "Yuca Soup". I did not care for it. I am not a big vegetable soup lover.
Other things made? I made a the "Buttermilk Pancakes" from this gals e-book and loved them! I also made fruit leather from this other gal's e-book, and the kids loved them and gave them a new name... 'fruit skin'. I invented a new recipe using the dough from my "Joy of Cooking" croissant recipe. I browned some ground beef with garlic, shredded some cheese, and put them in the dough and squished them together. Next time I will shape them in nice shapes and cover them in butter so they will not look so weird. Ok... now for the pictures...

Sadly, no one has told me if they wrote a blog post about their favorite kitchen tools. So, I only have a small number of links to share with you today. If you are interested in doing this challenge... let me know in the comments below!
1) COMFORT FOOD!
2) I just bought some apples to make these...
3) In Love! I want some. :D I think I am going to get some of the 'asparagus' and fill it with the grains I use and display them in my cabinets.
