I would like to again thank you all so much for joining us each week!! Those of you who are new to us or are Tailgating Time time regulars! Come on and join us! it's easy, just add your link!
You don't have to like football to enjoy tailgating! What is more fun than sharing good food with good friends?! It's all about the food!!
Here are a couple of sweet treats that I will be bringing to the tailgating party today. Sweet ripe plantains and guava cheese snack.
Gingerbread liqueur, and it was so good!
You will see it in a can, flat tin, box, or like I got it..in a thick plastic wrap. Many different brands can be found too. I will post some more recipes on how you can use it. Like turnovers, stuffed inside fritters, but today it's all about simple...
It is a day full of flavors! Now that's a good bite! Have some!
Tailgating Time will be posted every Sunday at noon and it will be open until noon on Wednesday. That should still give you plenty of time to add your family favorites. We'll play each and every week until Superbowl Sunday.
Can't wait to see what you bring!

Lyndsey, I missed not participating the last couple of weeks. Today I'm bringing a cake, we all need dessert, right? Thanks for hosting and hope you're having a great weekend!ReplyDelete
I seldom see plantains here, but I used to eat them often when we lived in Africa. They have a delicious flavour and cooked like this I just know they will be yummy. DianeReplyDelete
Brenda, thanks for bringing dessert! We missed you...happy your back.ReplyDelete
Dianes, can you find them frozen? You could always use bananas!
It all looks so yummy!ReplyDelete
Yummy, Cuban food!!ReplyDelete
Hi lovely Lynds! Hope you have recovered from Thanksgiving! I think your plantain tid bits look wonderful! I so enjoy flavors of the tropics because my grandparents lived for many years in Puerto Rico! My recipe also combines sweet and savory. These cheesed-stuffed dates with Prosciutto were a hit as an appetizer at our thanksgiving and my hubby had the leftovers, you guessed it, Watching football the next day! All the best to you. AlexReplyDelete
Guava paste, galletas Cubana, and plantians my kind of snack. Now the gingerbread liqour was new to me. Interesting addition.ReplyDelete
I've got a recipe for guava cake from my Puerto Rican sis-in-law. I've never made it because we can't get (or I can't find) guava paste in Alaska. It's a light moist 2 layer little cake with a thin layer of guava paste in between the layers. I think the top is dusted with powdered sugar. Last time my bro-in-law came to AK for a visit he brought some up in his carry on! it only lasted a few minutes! :)ReplyDelete
delicious food, yum yumReplyDelete
I've never seen the gingerbread liqueur...I must hunt a bottle down.ReplyDelete
Good thinking about the ripe plantine..they look fabulous!ReplyDelete
Whoa this is so super unique! I adore any plantain recipe and I can't wait to try this!ReplyDelete
Ivonne - Ha! I knew you'd like it!
Alex - Thanks hope you can try it. The cheesed-stuffed dates with Prosciutto sound wonderful!
Lazaro - I tried it once istead of adding brown sugar, butter and cinnamon and it was so good with the ripe plantains. Now I keep a bottle on hand just for that dessert.ReplyDelete
Susan - the cake sound delicious! Could you use guava jelly instead? I could always send some guava paste to you, let me know!
Krishnaveni - thanks youReplyDelete
Bo - you would enjoy it. I keep a bottle just for this. It's good over ice cream too, or in coffee.
3 hungry tummies - thank you! All this talk I want some more!
Joanne - thanks, I'm sure you'll enjoy it. I love all plantain recipes too!
This looks so good. I like plantain but never cook it - I always wait for someone else to cook it! And the guava paste reminds me that I still have the package that you kindly sent me. I will use it this weekend. Yum.ReplyDelete
Love the plantain out there.ReplyDelete
When I saw your picture of plantains I felt so homesick for a second. I wish I could have some.ReplyDelete
I bought a plantain once to make your chips but it got ripe on my and I didnt know what to do with it. I threw it out. :(ReplyDelete
Now I need to look for some gingerbread syrup and try this whole plantain thing again! This looks great!
interesting snacks - I've never tried these before! thanks for sharing - its looking good.ReplyDelete
have a lovely day!

Gingerbread liqueur?? Is that a seasonal thing?ReplyDelete
Pru, thanks, there are lots of goodies you can make with the guava paste. I like turnovers with cream cheese and guava paste. Hope you like it.ReplyDelete
Sanjeeta - me too
HH _ wish you could come over for some!
Megan that's funny. It's easy to let them get ripe, but they are good this way too. The gingerbread liqueur is so good on this.ReplyDelete
jen cheung - thanks, it is fun discovering new snacks!
Kristy - thanks, happy you are back! Talk to you soon! Cheers!
Rita - thanks that's so nice. Ripe plantains are sweet like bananas but the firmer texture is a little easier to work with in dishes like this.ReplyDelete
LdyRoxx - nice to meet you. Martha and I have met in Nokomis over the summer. Where are you?
Claidia - I thought of you when I made this, you like to use liqueur in things. I've used gingerbread liqueur in French toast!
