The boys went fishing this weekend and brought back Mutton Snapper.  It’s the absolute best fish to use for ceviche.  It’s very tender and practically melts in your mouth.  (You don’t have to chew it).  We had some baked sweet potato in the fridge and we chopped it into small cubes serve on the side.  The perfect end to a hot and sunny Sunday!

The ingredients Leleco (my brother) uses:  Freshly squeezed lime juice, freshly squeezed orange juice, a little salt, chopped onions, chopped cilantro.

What I added:  A dash of Turmeric and a few teaspoons low sodium soy sauce.

Happy Birthday

One of our colleagues at work had a birthday this week.  He loves football.  We couldn’t resist!  We decorated his entire office with his team’s colors and photos of all his favorite players –The Seattle Seahawks.  And…for the cake…we gave him his very own football.

The cake was easy to make–the usual chocolate cake baked in a football-shaped mold.  I purchased the mold at Michael’s.  Icing dye for the brown icing.  I made cupcakes with the remaining cake batter.
