At school a couple of weeks ago, I presented a lunchtime special to the students about my studies abroad in Cuba. The kids were so cute and asked great questions about what it is like in a place that is so mysterious to many Americans. The best part of the presentation was….THE CAKE! They keep asking me to bring my special milk cake back to school.
So, if anyone needs an easy dinner recipe or a great theme for a dinner party…look no further. I have your Cuban Dinner all planned out!
2 tablespoons olive oil
4 garlic cloves, minced
2 green bell peppers, seeded and chopped
1 tablespoon salt
1 can diced tomatoes
a pinch of dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
Coarsely shred the meat with 2 forks, then stir in the olives and olive brine. Serve over rice.
