Hi, dear Steemians and SteemFoodies :)

Hope you're all doing well. I'm sharing my Day 28 of The Food Diary Game, Season 11, from the #SteemFoods community, led by @steemitfoods and @alikoc07.

Today we celebrated my sister's birthday. I made the cake and brought some wine. The day was quiet and besides the cake, I didn't have much to do in the kitchen.

Before I got to drink my first coffee of the day, I had already made the dough for the arepas with would eat for breakfast and had cleaned and stored the fish our favorite seller saved for us.

Then I made the birthday cake I would give to my sister in the evening.

I also made a little one for us at home.

Below you can see how soft the cake was. It was yogurt sponge cake with milk caramel pastry cream and grated coconut on top.

I made the sponge cake with the following ingredients:

  • 1/2 cups olive oil
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda + 1 tablespoon white vinegar
  • half a teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup yogurt

The procedure is quite simple. Just mix all ingredients, one by one, in the same order they appear. Get the batter in a 18'' baking pan, greased, and bake for 30 min at 250 degrees F.

After the cake was done, I had breakfast: fried eggs and arepas.

I added cheddar.

In the faternoon, I made red lentil soup for late lunch.

I sautéed bacon and onions, added the lentils and some bay leaves. When this was done, I added enough water, salt, and corn on the cob cut in pieces. Finally, I added diced ripe plantain.

I served it with grated feta cheese and pepperoncino. My husband ate his with black pepper instead.

I want to rescue two things from tonight: 1. the chicken empanadas were spectacularly tasty, due to the great amount of natural seasonings my sister used to cook the chicken breast filling: she used onion, aji jobito, red pepper, and lots of garlic. 2. This drink is excellent for adding pineapple, mango, apple and pieces of other fruits you like to make a very fun sangria. This one costs $4.10 at Rio Hypermarket.

These were the highlights of my food-day.
I hope you have delicious and healthy meals today in good company :)
