My little cousin (aka my best friend that I spent every summer with growing up) came home from PERU yesterday and spent 6 hours in the kitchen making us an authentic Peruvian meal for dinner!
She was in Peru all summer doing humanitarian work and lived in Spain last year so she speaks fluent Spanish…..although, Peru and Spain’s Spanish are quite different she said:)
That fried thingee was delicious…..Potatoe Relleno. She made mashed potatoes and made them into a ball, stuffed with meat/peppers/onions etc. and covered them in bread crumbs and fried it. She also made plantains and delicious lime rice.
Where’s Janae? That is me behind that ginormous hand on the far left. I guess my family doesn’t agree with my no shower unless it is an emergency policy.
Peru, it is official, I can and will visit you someday now that I know you have delicious desserts. Yes, that is the one and only factor determining my choice on where to vacation next. For a more realistic dessert plate of what I actually ate just add 42 of those chocolate covered marshmellow carmel things.
PPS I think that you could put anything on top of a graham cracker crust and it would be delicious!
Side Note: My aunt is getting married THIS SATURDAY (there will be a gelato bar and a candy bar) and she also ran the Park City MARATHON yesterday. She is doing the Utah Grand Slam Circuit which involves doing 4 marathons in Utah within about 6 months.
Here’s a sneak peak at the elevation map for the Park City Marathon. First 20 miles uphill? The winning time was a male in 3:02…….yeah, just a little tough!
I have some exciting news to share with you later on today and it doesn’t involve babies, candy (well kind of) or work. I can’t wait to tell you!
What was the toughest (hills) race course that you have ever run?
-The first part of Utah Valley marathon had some rolling hills but that is it and the rest was smooth sailing.
Do you speak another language?
-I can somewhat understand a teeny bit of Spanish but that is it. Billy speaks Russian fluently, he lived in Ukraine for TWO years!
What was the best wedding food you have ever had? Favorite type of wedding desserts?
-My favorite is when there is a candy bar obviously but we had a crepe bar at our open house and it was pretty amazing. I was not one of those brides that didn’t eat the whole time, I enjoyed everything we had and just talked with my mouth full ha!
