DAY 45 TILL DAY 48 OF THE 100 DAY PROJECT

Madeiran foods... still have another 20 plus dishes/foods to go back to my vegan food.



Day 45: Tartelete de morango. Strawberry tartlet with whipped cream inside...hummm!
Day 46: Bacalhau a Gomes de Sa. Bacalhau means Cod fish. This is a dish that I normally ate at Christmas Eve or birthday dinner parties with family.
Day 47: Milho cozido. Cook polenta. This dish can be eating like this and is also the base for the fried polenta. We cook the polenta pour it in a soup plate. Let it cool down. Put it in a fridge for a day or two. Then take it out. Cut it in to squares then fry the polenta. When I was a kid my grandmother (from my mother side) used to pour milk with sugar on top of the freshly cooked polenta. Never enjoyed it. No amount of sugar would change my mind. I only enjoyed when fried and in restaurants.
Day 48: Croissant misto. It's a croissant cut in the middle like bread with butter and a slice of cheese and a slice of ham. Yummy! (except the ham...never enjoyed the taste of it....)

DAY 41 TILL DAY 44 OF THE 100 DAY PROJECT

and guess... more Madeiran food.




Day 41: Sopa de Tomate. Tomato Soup with onions and egg.
Day 42: Rebucados de Funcho. Hard sweet made with fennel. Growing up there was only one taste, fennel but now you can choose from banana, passion fruit and berries.
Day 43: Cornucopia com chantilly. Cornucopia/horn made with puff pastry filled with whipped cream and topped with icing sugar.... delicious. One of my favourites. The pastry is not that sweet so it's well balanced with the sugary whipped cream and icing
Day 44: Gaiado. Gaiado is a species of Tuna. That we eat dry. There's lots of combinations that we can achieve with this dry fish. For me personally it's not a fish we ate everyday maybe my mum bought it twice a year.
