Sunday Stamps

Cozido Completo means 'full cooked' and seems to be a Brazilian stew that is an intensive process and involves many, many ingredients...
here is one recipe I foundEvery one I looked up was different, but it gives you an idea.

Quindim  is a popular Brazilian baked dessert, made chiefly from sugar, egg yolks and ground coconut. It is a custard often made in a ring mould and usually presented as an upturned cup with a glistening surface and intensely yellow colour. (wikipedia)

If you are not so hungry, but merely a little peckish, you could go with this cheese plate and glass of wine....
Stillleben mit Käse und Kirschen by Georg Flegel (1566-1638)
I really like this one of the braided bread in the shape of a heart from Slovenia, 
not least for their cool play on words 
(though in English) of  I FEEL SLOVENIA

  1. That's quite an interesting recipe. I would be tempted to try it if I could get all the ingredients.

  2. I think I'm only peckish and can never resist cheese and wine. One of the things I always enjoy is trying other countries bread so would definitely sLOVEnia to taste.

  3. I would be tempted to EAT this recipe, but it looks like far too much work for me to make!

  4. Goodness that is a serious stew - enough to feed a huge family! I like the bread too - and I'll borrow the glass of wine. Thank you for participating.

  5. Those stamps are so cute! Food looks really yummy too!

  6. These are the type of stamps I hoped to find - but couldn't.
    Fine stamps but as I'm not a cook I'll give the recipe a miss.

  7. Quindim sounds refreshing.
    Would like to try that
    Hugs and love the stamps

  8. love the braided heart design - very nice!

  9. I would probably like the stew if someone else cooked it. I would never make anything with that many ingredients.

  10. Great finds, the dessert sounds lovely.

  11. You'd need a seriously large appetite for a stew like that, and a large family too.

  12. I love custard. Custard Slices are my favourite treat ever! But I also like custard filled eclairs. YUMMY! These are great stamps. I don't think South Africa has any food stamps.
