Would be nice to see you in the kitchen... still this is an excellent recipe man!

I am buying slowly better equipment for my kitchen and take real pics of my recipes. This is one I´ve cooked in my youth and after when I was a law school student. We didn't have money to buy ready-made food but we liked to eat tasty food so we cooked 1-2 times a week for the rest of the days. In those days I was also a private teacher of first year subjects in law school and then a teaching assistant in three subjects at my university law school. This is a hobby for me and I enjoy it. Thank you very much for commenting. Have a good weekend. Greetings from Argentina.

Looking forward to that... Greetings from the Dude! :smirk:
