Last night I ate my mom's delicious oxtail stew. Oxtail is really rich and flavorful. The stew was accompanied by a tangy Asian cole slaw, crusty buttery croissants, and fresh fruit salad. For dessert there were chocolate cookies and chocolate-covered pretzels and a Tres Leches Cake I'd made. Pioneer Woman gives such detailed photos of the recipe that I won't bother; just imagine that my cake looked as pretty as hers. :) I liked the cake and it was a lot of fun to make-- pouring that rich milk mixture all over it... mmmm..... I chose to add half a teaspoon each of nutmeg and cinnamon because I was afraid the cake would be bland, and I'm glad I did. It was still a little on the bland side, but with such sweet light moist goodness that I'm certainly not complaining.
So anyway, I ate really well yesterday. And what do you suppose I did after dessert? Read Pope Paul VI's apostolic constituition on penance and fasting and abstinence.
