Last night a fellow expat, veejay, came over to visit us. Inspired by the recent Mexican food thread, my wife and veejay decided to make a Mexican dinner. By the time I came home, the dinner was ready. We had incredible rice, fajitas, yummy tamale pie and coronas. The food was incredible, kudos to the chefs :) Everything was really good, especially tamale pie. I mean it was authentically really really good. After we finished, my wife was excited it turned out good, and shared with us that she found real good corn meal that she added to the pie. She took out the corn meal box, and it read in Russian "Mannaya krupa", or creme o wheat. Oh boy, it was so funny, excellent tamale pie with manka instead of corn meal.

I strongly recommend, try it! :D

Indeed...didn't have the heart to tell her that it was wheat of some sort...she was incredibly proud of herself for finding 'corn meal'....:-) Bless...

Great meal, great company...!!! and a new substitute for corn meal...

Thanks, Maine!!!
