My mother called me about two weeks ago, and at some point in the conversation she said "when I come to visit you, I'm bringing a surprise".
The damage was done. Miss Curiosity here spent this whole time forgetting and remembering to think
whether it would be something to eat, something for my home, to dress myself, if it had something to do with cinema...
She arrived at last, and what a beautiful surprise!
It was that huge book "Dona Benta - Comer bem". The best selling Brazilian cook book in the country ever since it's first edition - in 1940 -, according to the foreword.
It comes with many traditional recipes, the ones that might end up forgotten once in a while.
The ones that feel great to be reminded of suddenly.
As soon as I could, I spent hours browsing the book and reading recipes.
To start it up, I cooked these waffles this morning.
