What’s Love got to do with it?
Love has a lot to do with it. My parent’s cooking has a lot of love and flavor. On two separate occasions I took the time to document these loving moments to share with you all.
The first day I would like to share is my birthday dinner. I really enjoyed sharing my birthday with a fellow revolutionary (Jose Mendez). Chef Mama and Chef Papa made an amazing mole verde de pipian. It would have not been as special and loving with out having Chef Mama, Chef Papa, Mendez Family, Brother Malcolm, Sister Jasmine, Chef Mariposa, house mate Shelly, and Goddaughter MIA.
- Polvo de semilla de pipian (straight out of Mexico)
- Peanut Butter
- Green tomatoes
- Served with white rice (with carrots, potatoes, and green beans)
A big thanks to Chef Mama and Chef Papa.
Look at the next blog for the next occasion…
