As he was putting the finishing touches on his list I presented him with a challenge. I told him I'd like something easy-to-fix for tonight's dinner. His budget was five dollars. I didn't care what type of cuisine, and it could come from anywhere in the store.
This is what he brought me:
|Beans, sausage, and samosas|
Wikipedia, which told me that...
"Longaniza is a Spanish sausage similar to a chorizo and also closely associated with the Portuguese linguiça, which is popular in the cuisines of several regions of Spain, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Mexico, Chile, Argentina, Uruguay and the Philippines."Now that I knew what I was working with it was time to figure out what to do. Donald suggested I incorporate the head of cabbage in the refrigerator, so I did a Google search and came up with a recipe called Filipino Sausage and Bok Choy which was close enough for me.
The dinner ended up as more work than what I'd originally what I had in mind, but it was WAY better than what I had in mind. It was basically a stir-fry with onions, garlic, and cabbage and the sausage mixed with a light sauce of broth, cider vinegar, and soy sauce. I made a batch of rice to serve with it, and at the last minute added today's tomato harvest on the side.
