I was a card carrying member of Del Monte Kitchenomics Club. Now declaring this might be revealing my age, but I did join it whilst I was still in 6th grade (which is now probably equivalent to middle school in the States and Year 7 here in the UK).
Most of what I call my specialties were learned from the back of those Del Monte canned food labels. My pineapple crumble was learned from a can of Del Monte pineapple chunks label, and this recipe started me on my baking and cooking journey.
I have a dish that I call skillet paella or arroz con chorizo which is a one-pot rice meal that is sort of like a short cut version of the popular Spanish rice dish. This was also a recipe I got off the back of a Del Monte label, this time a tomato sauce can. I’ve done and redone the dish and I probably can cook this by sight and still have it taste exactly how I want it. I think it’s because I’ve been cooking this for more than half my life.
I wrote about the dish in an earlier blog entry and called it Arroz con Chorizo, because it, to be honest, it sounded fancy!
It was this dish that did on Instagram stories last week. If you missed it, you can always look at the link above and try the recipe I’ve written down.
I’ll update this entry as soon as the tech cooperates with me and I can upload my photos properly!
I still have to resume the cookbook project that was put on hiatus because, well, life got really busy. But the moment I allowed life to get busy, I lost my balance. I think I need to get back to creating yummy things through baking! I need to regain the equilibrium.
