Pasta salad

Today the ‘Magrelinhos’ ate this delicious pasta salad. For this dish I used cabbage, pasta, a mix of vegetables, olive oil, garlic and tomatoes. 🙂

After it, I think we are ready to order a family size pizza or a juicy sandwich with fries. =) Have a lovely pasta…

Rio São Francisco

“Riacho do Navio
Corre pro Pajeú
O rio Pajeú vai despejar
No São Francisco
O rio São Francisco
Vai bater no “mei” do mar
O rio São Francisco
Vai bater no “mei” do mar

Ah! se eu fosse um peixe
Ao contrário do rio
Nadava contra as águas
E nesse desafio
Saía lá do mar pro
Riacho do Navio
Eu ia direitinho pro
Riacho do Navio

Pra ver o meu brejinho
Fazer umas caçada
Ver as “pegá” de boi
Andar nas vaquejada
Dormir ao som do chocalho
E acordar com a passarada
Sem rádio e nem notícia
Das terra civilizada
Sem rádio e nem notícia
Das Terra civilizada.”

Bragiole – beef rolls

One of traditional Maltese ways to serve the bragiole cooked in tomatoes sauce is with pasta. The slices of beef are stuffed with minced meat and herbs. So I cooked the rolls with garlic, onion, tomatoes, paprika, olive oil and tomato sauce over low heat. Usually in Brazil we stuff these slices of beef with vegetables, we call it beef a rolê ! Very simple and delicious.
