We had the whole feijoada shebang yesterday.  It’s traditionally eaten as Sunday lunch, and many restaurants only make it then.  It’s a massive meal a caldron of meats (thankfully we could choose which ones we wanted so we got mostly carne seca and ribs, and no ears or tails) cooked in beans, with dishes rice, farofa, additional beans, collard greens, fried aipim, and oranges.  It was a spread that required them to push another table alongside our four.  We ate until we couldn’t anymore.  It was nice to do once, I think it might be a while before we undertake the challenge another time.feijoada
