First I chopped up some tomatoes using the fancy tomato (and cheese) knife my mom got me for Xmas. I was skeptical -- it seemed like a marketing ploy to me -- but it worked like a charm. This little knife is amazing. I highly recommend it.
Next I de-pitted an avocado and prepped it for arepa smearing. Out came the goat cheese, and my assembly line was ready to go. I mixed up my batter and ladled out my cakes.
I made eight total -- four each for two sets. (Sets? ha!)
Worth noting, in addition to painting, we installed (while, Brad installed) a new light fixture in the dining room, which provides real light. That, combined with the no-more-dingy-yellow walls, provides for much more pleasant pictures.
While these were good... it made me miss Cafe Habana, which I've forgotten about every time I've been back to AA. Friends, help me remember to go there when I come visit next time! Mmm sangria.
