Hi everyone!!!!! Things are going fine... some little problems in life but always trusting that better days will come! And what is the best thing to forget a bad day???.. A new dish!!! so here it goes.. for those that can't read in portuguese my apologies.. I will try to traslat it latter... Bolinho de abobora 200 g de abóbora cozida no vapor e processada - 3 gemas - 100 g de farinha de trigo - pitada de noz-moscada - sal e pimenta-do-reino a gosto - 3 claras em neve - 4 colheres (sopa) de azeite - 1/2 cebola picadinha - 300 g de camarão sete barbas limpo (opcional) - 1 tomate sem pele e sem sementes picado - 1 colher (sobremesa) de colorau - cheiro verde picado a gosto (salsa, cebolinha e coentro) - sal e pimenta-do-reino a gosto - 250 g de requeijão cremoso Preparo: 1 - Numa tigela coloque 200 g de abóbora cozida no vapor e processada, 3 gemas, 100 g de farinha de trigo, pitada de noz-moscada, sal e pimenta-do-reino a gosto e misture bem até ficar uma massa homogênea. Acrescente 3 claras em neve e mexa delicadamente com o auxílio de um batedor de arame. 2 - Em forminhas individuais tipo de empadinha (5 cm de altura x 7 cm de borda) bem untadas e bem enfarinhadas, coloque a massa até preencher 3/4 de cada forminha. Obs.: esta massa pode ser guardada na geladeira de um dia para o outro 3 - Numa panela em fogo médio aqueça 4 colheres (sopa) de azeite e refogue 1/2 cebola picadinha por 3 minutos.

Life in Brazil

I am finally updating this thing !!!!!rs.. last time I posted something I wrote about our decision to go back to Brazil. Today I can assure you that Glauco and I really took the right decision! Since the time we got to the airport things started to work out. First of all we were carrying about 6 bas plus a 37" Tv... we were planning to pay about $ 300 to $400 of extra... for some reason the guy from United was so nice.. we were talking and he was so impressed to know that a young couple having a life in US decided to go back home not knowing what was going to happen now on...long story short, he did not charged us!!! that was pretty exciting :) Everything got as expected to final destination( Curitiba), even our TV!! To see my family after 5 yrs was so good.. everyone crying but happy. On our second day here we went downtown to see SRE, which is a church department here to look for jobs, about 30 min there a brother sent us to next building where a guy was hiring people for different positions and we were going g to give them our resume. Well we had an interview!!I wasn't even dress out for an interview.. anyways, next day we went to santa Catarina plannig to spend a week there. Well we spent 4 days there because Exxon mobil called me and with less than a week I was day Glauco, who is teaching English at a pretty nice school here. Things are going perfectly well, we are so happy, especially now that we already have our place, we rented a apt in downtown close to everything we need... I miss our friends and Family a lot.. Hope to go visit you guys soon... we love you all!!!
