Girls' Night

The ladies of my school got together again recently for mojitos and some Latin American cuisine. Mixed together some rum, mint, sugar, lime juice, and seltzer water and we were set!
To nibble on we had Sweet Potato Croquettes:

  • 2 cups mashed sweet potatoes, about 4 medium sweet potatoes
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • fine dry bread crumbs, plain
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • oil for deep frying
Vegetarian Ceviche (made with hearts of palm):
Ceviche made with Tilapia:

Ceviche is a citrus marinated seafood dish originating from Peru. While the fish is not cooked with heat, it has the consistency of cooked fish from the 6 hour bath in lots of lime juice. According to my friend who made both Ceviche dishes, you basically add fish/veggie, onion, and lots and lots of lime!

We also had tortilla chips for dipping, salsa, and guacamole. Yummy night!


PS Let's not talk about the Phillies :(
