mangu & piropos

i just made this for dinner & it was everything i had hoped it would be...

it's called mangu -- it's plantain smashed up & it has red onions that were fried in oil & vinegar 

a typical dominican dish

i got another new responsibility at work last week as an employment specialist to the Cuban clients

so one day per week i spend making phone calls to Cubans and conducting interviews with them

today on a phone conversation one asked if i were Dominican




this literally meant, that over the phone, he noted little to no american accent...


  1. Shelby. I posted my patio garden pictures. Did you see them? Love, your cousin.

  2. Well, when I talk to you on the phone you don't seem to have any accent to me either. Very bilingually impressive!
