Last Saturday I went to my friend’s house to help her paint the fence of her backyard…Big Mistake!!! not only I ended up with white paint all over my hair, my nails, my forehead (if I said my shecock, would you believe me?) but I also ate like a pig because my friend happens to be a fantastic cook and she prepared all kind a delicious plates that I could not resist to eat.
I must say she is Cuban and one of the plates she made was something called “malanga” which is prepared in the form of puree and you add milk and butter..it is yummy!! I ate a large bowl with Cuban bread that she bakes in her house. Her kitchen is very rustic and has a brick oven. That’s the only thing that made it all worth it, the flavor of that Cuban food, the warmth of the Cubans (more arrived ) their upbeat music, and the loud conversations. It was very nice to spend a clear-sky afternoon amongst them.
