I’ve always pondered why We am in love with everything that’s breakfast time related…or you understand, just obsessed with food in general.
I think I finally found the solution after going to my Grandmother and hanging out in your kitchen cooking with her. I’m now quite convinced that a love for food has been passed down to me. I understand that it’s something that will be aside of me forever. In fact, cooking for others is absolutely my favorite thing in the world.
My husband to be is one lucky man.
Wait… no I’m not.
My grandmother is Puerto Rican, thus much of the food she cooks is commonly Spanish motivated; my Nana (Great Grandmother) taught her how to cook from scrape when she was a girl. Since then, it has been one of her favorite things you can do. When my Grandma isn’t producing homemade pozole, empanadas, and arroz con pollo, she is usually baking muffins the size of my face or knocking together a absurd continental breakfast for my Grandfather. Significantly provide her a half hour and she’ll cause you to an incredible meal, but provide her with a couple of hours and you’ll have a masterpiece to eat.
She treats every meal she makes with affection, putting the most love into her creations – it’s an extraordinary quality. She pours her spirit into stews and she throws her spice forever into spanish grain. Cooking is similar to an expression to her, and everything is always made with like.
My Grandma and We are two peas inside a pod. I admire her in every way. I love her best though when she’s making me brunch, which frequently includes her popular buttermilk waffles. Crispy externally, warm and ideal inside.
When she made these incredible buttermilk waffles my Grandpa and I joked that was most likely the healthiest factor she made for us within my stay. I also specifically understand that she once asked me easily desired waffles and glaciers cream for supper. Another day she attempted to feed me this pile of pastries for breakfast.
So wrong, but soooo good.
I believe I’m still wanting to burn off those calorie consumption, but hey, you merely live once, best? I just have to teach my Grandma about the word ‘everything in moderation’. After all, a minimum of for my Grandfather’s sake.
If you have been reading my blog, you may remember when I mentioned that he’s had a couple of heart attacks. He’s still going strong though!
Did I point out they love each other like crazy? After all, they are the best romantics. Here’s a picture of my Grandpa attempting to repair my Grandma’s watch after it abruptly broke while we had been out. He made it his mission to repair it instantly himself, walking to every shop nearby to see if they experienced a special pin for the music group. Sure enough, he found one!
They both love and Pigs trotters take care of each other. I believe that’s pretty incredible to be heading strong for nearly 60 years.
Now I’m the one pouring my heart and soul into the food I cook: whipping up pancakes with such treatment, crafting a skillet chicken (with pepperoni sauce) that only children could adore, and browning lots of butter for the best delicious chocolate chip cookies (the way to win anyone’s heart).
Cooking is my love and I’m bringing it to you. I hope you’ll stay awhile and eat some ridiculously great waffles with me.
With butter, syrup, and other things that your heart desires.
