I learned how to make picadillo from Ginger Lopez, who is an amazing cook. This cuban dish is basically a stew of seasoned chopped meat with lots of olives served over white rice and topped with french fries. Hard to go wrong.
Mike's eyes have always dwarfed his stomach so when we went food shopping he forced me to get 3 lbs of meat. So excessive for 3 people. But my brother Mike is more stubborn then me, so we literally made a gigantic vat of picadillo with enough leftovers for everyone to enjoy for a few days.
Here's the recipe for picadillo from a previous post.
As a side I made corn and tomatillo salsa with red onion, tomato, garlic, cilantro, hot pepper, lemon juice, cayenne, and green peppers.
And we watched the funniest videos I have ever seen, Gino the Ginny. You will die of laughter watching this crazy kid.
