¡Esta Rojo!

¡Esta Rojo!

It's all about the red...or shades of red...this week.

Red inflames us, gets our motor revving, and excites both body and mind. 

It's also rich in nutrients, you know, eat the rainbow and all that. 

Rick has tons of red dishes in his books, the hard part will be choosing which one to make! 

So whether you make a delicious red appetizer....

Main course.....

Or even desserts or cocktails.... It's bound to be a wonderfully red week. ¡Esta Rojo!

Whip up your little red dish from one of Rick Bayless's recipes and post it on or by Sunday, September 9th. Link up with Mr. Linky, below, and leave a comment so we can all see your brilliantly colourful foodstuffs!

I made Rick's Jamaica Sangria with Cointreau--a pretty red sangria that was delicious and refreshing. ;-)

Kim said...

Changed up Rick's arroz con pollo to include rotisserie chicken. It was fabulous! One of our favorites.

My post is up. What a shocker, I got it up 7 minutes before the last day. Yay! Watermelon Cooler! I've had a few tonight, with a little added adult beverage!
