Father´s Day BBQ



Father´s Day brings his favorite foods to our home. It was both my husband´s birthday and father´s day celebration and we had a pool party with different cuts of beef, all from Argentina, including Bife de Chorizo or a sirloin strip steak piece, Entraña or skirt steak, Lomo al Trapo or beef filet cooked in hammock on the grill, Vacío or flank steak and Tira de Asado or short ribs.

All but the Lomo al trapo were seasoned with olive oil mixed with some pepper and herbs. As we placed the meat on the grill we sprinkled them with Kosher salt.
The lomo al trapo´s recipe from our web page www.creativeculinary.net is linked on todays title.
Check for other recipes like the Chimichurri on the web page or for the video on www.cookingcolombia.com

FOOD AND HOPE – NUTRIR Barranquilla



Nutrir had a Fundraising Bingo in Barranquilla for which I donated a TV. Here’s the letter they sent to me today and some pictures of the activity.

What a nice way to start my blog…

Señora
PATRICIA McCAUSLAND
Barranquilla

Respetada señora:

Es grato dirigirnos a usted, para poner de manifiesto nuestro más sincero reconocimiento a la valiosa participación que han tenido en el BINGO NUTRIR realizado satisfactoriamente el pasado 8 de mayo en favor de nuestros niños.

Gracias a la buena disposición de su empresa, este significativo acto de generosidad representa para nuestra fundación el cumplimiento del propósito trazado en cuanto al aumento de cobertura de atención nutricional y para nuestros niños implica la oportunidad de acceder a una alimentación sana, balanceada y nutritiva, todos los días de la semana.

Resulta muy estimulante contar con una empresa de su nivel que comparta nuestros intereses en aportar para lograr la meta de compartir en un futuro una sociedad mas equitativa, por lo que Nuestros Barranquilleritos y nuestra junta directiva, expresamos el interés y entusiasmo que nos motiva invitarle a que se vincule permanentemente a nuestra campaña de: “Erradicar la desnutrición de nuestros Barranquilleritos para que puedan crecer sanos y fuertes”.

Con especial afecto y agradecimiento en nombre de nuestros niños y de su Junta Directiva

Atentamente,
