Obviously, I wanted to find a way to use them; after another google search, I realized that the loquat had limited use in everyday cooking, as most recipes were for preserves or in pies. One recipe did catch my eye - samosas with loquat chutney. Okay, I know this recipe was not really about the loquat, but those samosas grabbed me, so much so that I pushed the tamales to the back burner. Once I got the news about my right bosom, however, the samosas followed the tamales, and now I'm looking at meatloaf.
After 2 1/2 hours wandering back and forth and up and down the entire store multiple times (I counted it as my daily walk) I had NO inspiration for anything. It was like my Cooking Muse had moved leaving no forwarding address. What I finally came up with is - well, it's going to depend on the execution. That's tomorrow's blog post. Tonight, we had grilled dinner franks and beans. Sometimes simple is best.
