Come on Unstoppable María!

On December 2, 2016 I wrote about not having a job this Christmas in a post called Christmas without a job. I tried all year to not end the year without a job, but I'm sad to say I had no luck. What's even sadder is that this year I never had a job, unlike … Continue reading Come on Unstoppable María!

Last minute interview

When there’s no power, have a taco picnic 

Well, after the hurricane we got the power back for 24 hours from Saturday afternoon to Sunday afternoon. When I learned we had power I started doing laundry, turned on every fan in my house, watched Tv, and slept with the air conditioner on.

Rice and Beans: Take 2

Today I decided to make rice and beans again, this time with the ingredients I forgot last time to add flavor; I added cubitos and sazón. These two gave it that extra little bit of flavor it needed and it tasted just like it did when I used to make it five years ago. This … Continue reading Rice and Beans: Take 2
