Its Sunday after a holiday and you just need to stop beating yourself up over what to do with that leftover Turkey.
So here is a favorite dish we like here at the Heywood house.
( you know I am cheating- since we did not have turkey... but I am just trying to save you!)
Recipes for picadillo vary with each country and or region in Latin America.
This one is from my mother Anna Henderson and was her favorite.
I have made some changes and so can you add more hot or less- add more spices if you like.
You can use this in tacos, burritos, or chilaquiles.
We like to make it and serve it with rice, black beans and corn or flour tortillas.
2 pounds of good ground beef- we use our locally raised grass fed beef- or you can use ground turkey or 1/2 pork
2 onions chopped
1-2 cloves garlic
1- apple peeled, cored and chopped
1 red bell pepper sliced
1 yellow bell pepper sliced
1 pound (about 3 medium) tomatoes- or canned- or homegrown frozen.
1/2 cup raisins
1/4 cup pimiento olives, cut in half
1/8 tsp. cinnamon and cloves
1/2 tsp oregano
1 tsp cumin
salt and pepper
Saute onions, peppers and garlic in 2 tbs. oil.
cook and drain meat and add to saute
add all the rest and simmer 20-30 minutes.
On another note- we are thankful to be here today after almost being hit by a fool who ran a red light from the right as we entered into the intersection on our way out to dinner last night. Thank you anti-lock breaks and Marks quick reaction as the fool went right in front of us. We hit just enough to scrape his car, we have now added black to our front bumper, as he continued on his way. I saw him stop just for a second and them take off.
Needless to say we ordered a drink as soon as we sat down and tried to figure out what just happened. The light turned green as two cars were running the light- you fools. There was no one in the intersection as we pulled out. I was doing my wifely thing by talking to Mark, blah,blah,blah and then he said I said "Car" and he saw it coming and hit the brakes hard.
I don't know who you were, where you were going and why you would run a full on red light doing at least 65 or if you have a death wish, but we are happy to be here and you fool just get on down the road and remember to watch out because karma is a bitch and she is looking for you.
To all my readers, family and friends,
Be safe, share the road and think when you drive.
