The national dish of Brazil is called feijoada. It's a beans and rice dish, served with all kinds of garnishes.

First, we sauteed onions and garlic, what else would come first? Then we added the beans and chicken stock and cooked them until tender. Ham hocks came next, and when they got tender we took them out and pulled the meat from the bones. We cooked some chicken on the side and cut up some already-cooked chorizo sausage. It was really good served with rice. The garnishes were greens sauteed in garlic, an onion and cilantro relish, and salsa.

Tomorrow is free day, basically. We're making sushi again, because Taylor really wanted to, and I'm making my Grandma's rice and meat.

The block is almost done!
