|put the finishing touch on our masterpiece|
My second son has become a bit of a food connoisseur. He got this trait from his father...who I suppose got it from his mother...who got it from her mother before...and so it goes.
Consequently, if he is served toast with butter for breakfast, he will feel like a neglected soul. He does not like spaghetti three times a week...but he loves variety...and will not shy away from most foods....(he will even eat snails!)
But, finally I gave into his request just as long as he promised to be my sous chef. We took on the whole recipe...pie crusts and all....and the result was well worth the effort!
(But my most favourite part of all....was seeing his excitement....all the way through!)
If you would like to try this recipe, here is the link: Jamaican Meat Patties. It is from Emeril Lagasse.
|some of the ingredients needed...|
|Jar of Turmeric...hand grown and crushed by my sister in law's father|
|trying to get the ginger root as fine as possible|
|Tomatoes, one of the main ingredients...they really added a lot of flavour to the patties|
|We placed the tomatoes into hot water...in order to help remove the skins, as the recipe called.|
