Argentina: Part III

February 6th, 2009

One day J and I went across the Rio de la Plata to Uruguay by boat… We visited Colonia del Sacramento… I got another stamp in my passport!

It was a really, really, hot day!  The goal was to go ride horses along the beach… in reality, we got a few kilometers outside of the town, found a nice beach, put our feet in, and then sat down under an umbrella and drank some sangria… and had a plate of Uruguayan cheese… it was quite relaxing…

J and I like grocery stores. We always roam around them. J likes to look at the interesting fruit and I get excited for new ingredients that I’ve never cooked with… one day, we found little cute quail eggs and we made this creation. I poached the eggs. I used a technique similar to this and left them in the pan for about a minute or two. I like my yolk runny. J chopped up shallots for me (I tend to cry so much when I cut shallots!)  I sauteed them with a little bit of oil, seasoned with salt and pepper. In another frying pan, I heated the mushrooms through and places a bit of soft cheese (J, what is the name again?) inside to melt. Once the cheese was melted, I placed a poached egg inside and then topped with the shallots. It was excellent. Served with a salad. It was a nice light meal.

    I don’t quite get the last comment, but I’m loving your pics of South America. It’s one of the 2 continents I haven’t yet been to and there’s so much I want to see there.
