Speaking of Trinidad, check out this website loaded with recipes from that neck of the woods.<br><br>

We have a press. I don't think we've used it yet. I say "we" meaning my SO who does most of the cooking <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"><br><br>
Good luck with the tortilla making! A local Tex-Mex restaurant makes their own where you can watch. It's cool.
Wow, I have a sweet, sweet love hangover from my hot harina date. I'm even a little sore.<br><br>
It took a few tries to crank out a decent approximation of a tortilla, but it was worth it. The recipe that came with the press called for far too much water.<br><br>
I had it with some green chili I made from a recipe in Gourmet magazine. Yeah. I ate like a freakin' queen last night.
Hmm. I've never tried using one of those. Do you have one at home? What sorts of sandwiches do you make?<br><br>
Divine Miss M: what food has recently disappointed you? It's alright to cry. We're here to help!
So, I bought some lard today:<br><br><img alt="" src="http://www.texmex.net/Graphics/lard.gif" style="border:0px solid;"><br><br>
I'm using it to make flour tortillas.<br><br>
Anyway, if you've ever had issues or fears about food, I heartily encourage you to go out and buy some lard; it's incredibly liberating. You can look at the cashier and the other folks waiting in line and say "Yeah. I'm buying lard. What's it to ya?"<br><br><i>You can even throw it away as soon as you get home, without using it!</i><br><br>
Be free. Buy lard.
Yes, my son gave me one for Christmas. I love it!<br><br>
You can make any kind of sandwich with pretty much any kind of bread. You really don't even need an actual specialized press.<br><br><a href="http://www.wikihow.com/Make-a-Grilled-Veggie-Panini" target="_blank">http://www.wikihow.com/Make-a-Grilled-Veggie-Panini</a><br><br>
I typically make three varieties. A Cuban, a grilled chicken pesto with grilled peppers, or a grilled portobello and veggies. YUM!
