You Learn Something New Every Day

A few weeks ago I was doing my daily "flip" through my favorite blogs--and I can tell you there are a lot of them, so it takes a while! All of sudden I stumbled upon this picture that literally made me breathe in and say "oooohhhh and ahhhhh" to myself. It was the perfect little bowl of creamy goodness. It looked so simple yet delectable. I continued to read and learned something new, courtesy of Tina at Mommy's Kitchen.  Media Crema. Ever heard of it? Well, I never had until this. Also known as Table Cream. I had no idea I had probably passed this in the baking or international foods aisle of my grocery store a thousand times w/o giving it a second glance. What is it? It's non sweetened condensed milk. And the description does not lie. It's not sweet at all. But w/ a little sugar added...mmmmm. Apparently street vendors in Mexico sell cups of this treat to go-okay I guess I learned 2 new things. I had no idea this little secret was being kept just over our boarder. This is truly the perfect cool down after a spicy Mexican supper! Or when it's just too darn hot to have anything baked! Thanks, Tina for teaching me new wonderful, and most importantly, super yummy things!!

Fresas Con Crema Strawberries and Cream
1 lb strawberries, sliced and sprinkled w/ granulated sugar (this made enough for the 3 of us)
1/3 c. powdered sugar (this was the amount that made it sweet enough for me)
1 (7.6 oz) Nestle Table Cream (Crema Media)
3/4 c. milk
Whipped Cream for garnish

Pour table cream into bowl and whisk in milk and powdered sugar. After strawberries have macerated, split into 3 serving dishes. Pour cream over each and top w/ whipped cream.

HUH... new to me as well... Wondering what the calorie difference is once you add the sugar. It does sound delicious!

Krista said...

Um, well, to be honest, it's so good I don't really care!!! Lol

Michelle said...

Ha Krista! I'm with you.... Sometimes you just have to not worry about the calorie count.

Thanks Andrea. It's actually my brother in law and my husband was his stem cell donor this past week. So far so good. The doctors couldn't be happier w/ his progress. Thanks so much for the prayers!
