Goodness! We’re half-way through February already! I have to say, I’ve had a pretty busy beginning of the year thus far. El Señor Hubs and I bought a house in early December, and we’ve been thinking and dreaming of our renovation/decor plans for our new home. We’re in the midst of choosing paint and fabrics for our bedroom, and getting ideas about tiles for our bathroom. Our minds change every day. One day we wake up love a zen-inspired bathroom, the next day we’re into super-modern-all-white spaces… and the same goes for the kitchen, which is another room we’ll renovate in the future. I can’t wait to share with you the befores and afters. But we’ll still in the befores… In addition, I’ve been flexing my web content strategy/design/management muscles, and building community with some really wonderful people.
All this to say – I am happy to report that true, human interaction is alive and well in me. I encourage you to do the same!
And how about doing so with some really awesome and super easy pasteles de pollo?
I think all of us at some point have had eaten a variation of these in our lives. Although these chicken ones are very popular in Ecuador, I also love, LOVE the beef version, pasteles de carne. Back in Guayaquil, there is this cafe/bakery called La Palma. On special occasions my mom used to take me there for Sunday breakfast, and we will order pasteles de carne and some coffee and juice. She had the coffee, I had the juice. We ate there, and then we would go to the park. One that was near our home was El Parque Seminario, or El Parque de las Iguanas, a.k.a the iguana park. As you can image, this park was full of iguanas, which were so used to human interaction they were not scared of people at all. So much so, they’d come close to you in hopes of scoring some food. The late Steve Irwin, a.k.a The Crocodile Hunter paid a visit to El Parque de las Iguanas. Do you remember him?
