You should know something about Hispanics... we love to eat! Nothing calls to us better than to cook and bake our favorite foods. Every year I have a 'cookie weekend' in which I bake as many cookies as possible and then gift them to everyone I know. We also have a big Christmas Eve party. Military families without family nearby (like us) tend to stick together and after a while they become your adopted family. Here are some pictures of my 2012 food adventures.
|Triple chocolate, chocolate crinkle, thrumprint shortbread, spritz, hazelnut filled, gooey nut bars|
Sorullitos de maíz (fried corn sticks), arroz con dulce (coconut rice pudding), flan de queso (cheese plan)
Appetizers - variety of cheeses, turrón alicante (almond nougat), pasta de guayaba (guava paste), tostones rellenos (crunchy fried plantain filled with chicken), and yuca en escabeche (yuca marinated in olive oil vinaigrette)
|Jamón con piña (ham with pineapple and cherries)|
What do you think? Is there anything special that you eat (or cook) during the holidays?
