Gabriel's class is doing something about celebrations from different cultures, including a potluck tomorrow, and he was insistent about making Brigidieros. Believe it or not, this is a treat from Argentina -- which Julian just did a report about -- and wasn't in the "Argentina Cooks" recipe book I bought.
But Gabriel found a recipe online, and insisted we make it tonight. Which we did. It was more labor-intensive than ingredient-intensive, but an insistent 10-year-old can stand over a pot and stir it incessantly, then roll things in coconut. Which we did.
Unfortunately, the 5th-grade doesn't invite the parents to the potluck, so I won't see -- or taste -- the spoils! But it was fun to do.
