Frozen mango, puree it in blender,
Add diced tomato, onion, chopped cilantro, squeeze lime juice. Add fresh diced jalapeno or hot smoked paprika powder...or both.
Salt to taste. Add on top fish, poultry or just eat with chips.
Hi Dory.I fully understand you. I would quit German to. We are just lucky that we learn it as children in an intuitive way without any grammar or rules; we just know how you say it. Later when we learn the grammar of it, it becomes a real headache also for us in the same way like Arabic, Greek and Latin . Somehow English was nearly for free for me as it is a kind of simplified German with other Latin expressions – and on the other hand we had an exchange student in our school from Los Alamos; New Mexico (Niels Gram ) and we became friends and I practiced with him on a regular bases while fooling around with him and learned a lot with him– long ago now and never heard from him again. I guess successful assimilation of a language is always connected to people and practicing and I am sure you would learn German in a glance if correctly motivated by the people you are with. A lot of German speakers are not so bad in English it is only that a lot of them have this pretty bad pronunciation which makes it sound worse than it is. I am Swiss and was surrounded by foreigners in my childhood, and find it a good thing to be open minded. Even German is a foreign language for us as we speak this “horrible” dialect….dory wrote:Christian,
I greatly admire all the German speakers here whose English is so excellent-- including yours. I really wish I could speak German. I speak some other languages, but failed at German-- perhaps due to a really bad teacher, who had his beginning students painfully translating Schiller with a dictionary but never taught us to speak. I am guessing he read German well but his spoken German was not good. For some odd reason, I left the class with the impression that German was too hard for me. I still have the impression that Germans who speak good English are geniuses, while I am unimpressed for example, by Spanish spakers who know English. After all, if I speak their language, how hard can it be for them to learn mine-- hmmm?
Allways nice to grill outside, even for vegetarians. I still remember that tenderloin is one of the most delicious parts.doug wrote:During the summer, I like to grill outside. One of my favorite things to grill is pork tenderloin. I heat my grill to about 600 F. The only thing I do to the tenderloin is rub olive oil onto them, then add salt and plenty of pepper. I grill the tenderloins over indirect heat, about 30 minutes. I like cold foods with it, like refrigerated Mandarin oranges, some cheese and maybe a few apple slices.......and a good chilled white wine.
I can see you like food to. I will try the almonds. Food is a good thing, one does not have to ask what it is good for, it is recycled in glance and there are always potential clients around for it.OldC1guy wrote:I've never tried coriander pesto. Over here it's called cilantro. The one ingredient that is missing is nuts. In basil pesto it's pine nuts (pignoli). In cilantro pesto I'd use almonds (plain roasted). Buon appetito...
Much appreciated your comment Doug! This must be really the silly season and I am confused about the limited success of this nice thread. Perhaps I should create a few alter egos or change my name to something which sounds cooler like Xariksopis. But keep calm I am not Joe de V nor Red John!doug wrote:That sounds delicious! I'm going to try it. .....thanks!
Funny, I have never fathomed what is interesting about grilling. One of the mysteries of life for me…ChristianSchwengeler wrote: … Always nice to grill outside, even for vegetarians. …
Pumpkin jam is very popular in Portugal but I had never tried it befor I came here. Let me know if you liked the real live result of my starter sugestion.doug wrote:Yep. I agree that many of the posts seem to be getting silly. I'm also a little surprised at the seemingly lack of interest in this thread??? I'm always looking for new things to try. I went to a grocery store last night and bought the ingredients to make your appetizer....except I couldn't find pumpkin jam. ....found some pumpkin butter, so I got that. I'm planning to try it tonight.
The fire was our preferred element in my childhood and we made fires all the time. We grilled bread into charcoal and then eat it. I was a member of the boy scouts and we made very nice potatoes in the fire, and also chocolate bananas - which consist in opening a banana and filling it with a strip of chocolate and then wrapping into aluminum foil and cook it in the fire. Works perfectly. The fascinating thing with grilling is more the fact of being outside and the smell of the fire and the magic light. Of course with a normal grill it is not so fun.simonm wrote:Funny, I have never fathomed what is interesting about grilling.

The nearest thing to grilling that I can relate to is roasting chestnuts in the autumn for a Magosto with Agua-Pe (in Galicia or Portugal).
Figs with cheese (or anything else) is something I can relate to however and I also prefer the dark ones - preferably fresh from the tree. Figs don't travel well.
Simon! You must come to my house and I will show you what is so wonderful about grilling. BBQ (grilling) is popular throughout the United States. But, in the Southwestern US (including parts of northern Nevada) we have access to a very special wood, Piñon pine, which, when it is burned, yields one of the most beautiful and seductive aromas on Earth. Anything that you grill using this wonderful wood automatically picks up the added scent and flavor of pine nuts as well. I burn this wood in our fireplace all winter long and it is heavenly. You would love it, I'm sure.simonm wrote:Funny, I have never fathomed what is interesting about grilling.
