How To Make An Ugly Couch Look Good

The anticuchos: Acts of heart and heart

purple month, October happened, and what better than to talk about a Peruvian dish, very requested in this month: The kebabs.
I have the memory of my childhood have been a bit difficult to eat, remember that he hated soup (hence Mafalda is my hero) and cried when my mom forced me to take it, hated vegetables, with carnecitas fat, or strange-looking dishes that were either in color or format same odors. So I was a hated to eat. The worst was when a beautiful day my older sisters came up with some weird things to eat and I was dying because the appearance was terrible!
Well, obviously I did not eat, and ran away when I heard calling me to eat that ugly dish do not know what ugly things. Do not remember the day I decided to try them, just know I was scared to death because I knew they were made of cow heart. But great was my surprise when just savor those bits of some kind of meat, different in texture but delicious on the palate, almost died but what they were delicious!

That was my debut eating kebabs and thus met a different but pleasant taste. From there I went to attend the "trucks" kebabs near my house. The trucks would be something like small carrinho similar madeira são years who used tapioca vendem Camel hair, bom mais ou less. remember much Margarita and her husband Antonio, she prepared them so delicious that it quickly ended, he served and the public responded with such kindness that made you want to return daily. Well, you are the skewers? They are pieces of heart cut into squares and crossed on a stick, the sticks would be used here for steak. The heart pieces are seasoned with a blend of Peruvian peppers, vinegar, salt, pepper, etc and brought into the grid (Grelha).
By serving are accompanied with boiled potatoes, corn and peppers. Some people also prefer to place some salad. The Margarita pepper and corn was unmatched, to say the corn, she was concerned to give us the best, big teeth and tasty! Thus, the kebabs became my vice.

I recommend it very much, I already prepared them here and I came very close. But beware, this business of disgust because they are having cow's heart let him aside because they would not know what they're missing. Mmmmmmmm already made me salivate!
