Typical Guatemalan Food
In honor of Caroline's great news, we had some friends over and cooked dinner. We made chicken soup (supa de gallina), tortillas, yuca, platanos verde (green plantains), arroz (rice), guacamole, maiz (corn), and pico de gallo (tomatoes, peppers, and onions). I've learned to cook some new foods, so I thought that I would share them with you! The last picture is of the juevo (egg) that was inside of the gallina (hen) when we cleaned and cooked it. What do you think????
I am the mother to a wonderful little girl named Caroline. We have been home from Guatemala for a few years and life has changed tremendously for us. I was a teacher, then a stay at home mom, and now I'm back to teaching full time. I am an AVID tennis player, dog and cat lover, coupon clipper, pathetic cook, and obsessed with coffee! I HATE cleaning and doing laundry. I am now trying to juggle LIFE one day at a time!!
