Merry Christmas!! Another holiday season is here and I hope you’re Christmas is off to a great start. I got to cook my first Pernil (Puerto Rican Style Pork Shoulder) and a Lazanga which I shared with my family last night for our Christmas Eve dinner. Not to brag about my cooking or anything but I have to say everything tasted pretty darn PERFECT!!! So perfect in fact, I may be brave enough to try my hand at Pasteles (A traditional Puerto Rican Christmas dish) next year. I’ll have to get my grandma’s recipe though, and pray I have inherited her “Puertorriqueña Iron Chef Hat”. Hmmm, we’ll see.
Well, just like last year. Aloysius, JENNY and I wish you, your family, friends and all your loved ones a blessed and wonderful Merry Christmas!! I hope Santa brings you something awesome!!
