March Daring Kitchen Challenge: Ceviche
Kathlyn of Bake Like a Ninja was our Daring Cooks’ March 2011 hostess. Kathlyn challenges us to make two classic Peruvian dishes: Ceviche de Pescado from “Peruvian Cooking – Basic Recipes” by Annik Franco Barreau. And Papas Rellenas adapted from a home recipe by Kathlyn’s Spanish teacher, Mayra.
I have been so busy and tired these past few weeks that I am sad to say I have not been fulfilling all of my obligations. I was supposed to go visit a friend the other day to finally meet here beautiful baby girl...but I was SO exhausted that I ended up sleeping all day, constantly hitting the snooze button on my alarm.
I wanted to hangout with my brother during the week and watch movies, since he was out of college for Spring Break, but any time that I didn't spend working, I spent it sleeping. And now he's gone back to school and I miss him :(
We were challenged to make Ceviche and Papa's Rellena's. this month for Daring Kitchen I couldn't even fulfill that entire obligation. I just did not have the time to make the delicious sounding recipe for the Papa's Rellena's, but I did not miss out on the chance to make the ceviche.
Ceviche was the perfect challenge for this month. It can be prepped and made in 10-15 minutes and can take as little as 10 minutes to "cook", depending on how "cooked" you like your seafood. I marinated mine for an hour. This easy recipe fit nicely with my busy work schedule.
I was so excited to use my new Canon camera today, and when I got ready to shoot pictures, I open the window to use my beautiful natural light, only to find a grey cloudy sky.
No worries though. I still love the photos this camera takes.
