So I’m sad to say that I don’t have a recipe for you guys. My parents are in town this week for my birthday and I have had no time to cook. I’m trying to take advantage of the fact that they are here to go to really nice restaurants (MUAHAHA).
But anyways, this week’s blog post is dedicated to my family. The main reason I decided to write a blog about cooking is because of them.
I have a huge Puerto Rican family, so I bet you can imagine how crazy it gets during the holidays. All of my aunts cook something delicious and then we just all get together to eat and gossip.
Ever since I got to college, my family has tried everything to teach me how to make simple Puerto Rican dishes. It hasn’t been that successful…it just doesn’t taste the same!
Luckily, I found out that there is a Puerto Rican restaurant here in DC where I can go if I am feeling homesick! It’s called Mio (which means “mine” in Spanish) and it is absolutely amazing! I took my parents this week and they were amazed by how good it was! If you like rice and beans, fried food, and plantains – you will definitely like this restaurant!
Next week, expect a Puerto Rican recipe. I know I’m gonna feel a little homesick once my parents leave so I’m going to want to make some comfort food.
Once again, sorry for not having a recipe today! I promise my next post will make up for it!
