This post is for my neighbor Karen, who tagged me for this meme, which was started by a local company (makers of the best marshmallows in the universe) to publicize a good cause. I also dedicate it to Neil, because he clearly needs help ordering at his neighborhood Dominican diner.
I'm pregnant, so when I was asked to tell you about the foods that remind me of home I couldn't stop at one meal. Nooo, I have to tell you about a what a perfectly comfort food DAY would look for me. Because this baby is hungry.
Cafecito de greca - I need my coffee.
Arroz con habichuelas and caramelized plantains. I'm not exaggerating when I tell you that this was my childhood lunch 80% of the time. We'd usually have some leftover Dominican cake for dessert. (So sweet!) More cafecito.
Woah. That's a lot of food for one day. I guess it's a good thing I live in a place where the produce guys don't know what a ripe plantains is. (No, it's not a banana.)
