When I was small my Avo would make me grab a chair and get me to watch her cook away . She would always say "Watch first, then help".
Nothing was ever measured, "Just a small cup or pinch of this and that!" She took so much pride in her cooking, because cooking for her family is what she lived for, and she wanted everyone to be happy and full... ..
She loved having company, we would all just talk or have good laughs, great wine, great food and amazing conversation. To me that's what it's all about !
My grandmother is 91 now, unable to do the things that she used to, but I will always have those amazing memory's. ~ xo
Back to the blog... As a child, she used to make this all the time and I loved it (and still love it). Found this recipe from Azoren Green Bean, Which has some great Portuguese recipes. I made this for my family and it tastes excatlly the same from when my grandmother made it !!
