To nibble on we had Sweet Potato Croquettes:
- 2 cups mashed sweet potatoes, about 4 medium sweet potatoes
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- fine dry bread crumbs, plain
- 1 egg, slightly beaten
- 1 tablespoon water
- oil for deep frying
Ceviche is a citrus marinated seafood dish originating from Peru. While the fish is not cooked with heat, it has the consistency of cooked fish from the 6 hour bath in lots of lime juice. According to my friend who made both Ceviche dishes, you basically add fish/veggie, onion, and lots and lots of lime!
We also had tortilla chips for dipping, salsa, and guacamole. Yummy night!
PS Let’s not talk about the Phillies 😦
