Cooking for the holidays…. 

Dear Reader, 

How goes it? I’m typing with the sweet sound of rain behind me. I need a lot of positive vibes for the next 48 hours. 

Regardless of the culture, we will agree that around this time of year there is a lot of food. From tamales to eggnog we all enjoyed some good eating at one point or another. 

This year my brother,  my very wise brother had an idea…  Let’s  give Mom the day off.  now, don’t get me wrong I am not opposed to giving my mother today off. After many years of cooking, she deserves it. However, he overestimates my cooking ability. I am in charge baking two cakes, two batches of salsa, beans and rice. The list as a whole is not challenging, what I consider a problem is the rice. If any of you have ever attempted to make Mexican rice you will know it is by far one of the most difficult dishes to make. Just about anything can mess it up. My sister has tried countless of times in the past 16 years and has seldom succeeded. Not to mention I have never cooked for such a large number of people. It may sound like I’m complaining, I am truly not. I am worried, I will either succeed in making a lot of people happy. Or convincing a large number of people that I am not to be trusted in the kitchen.

Either way, send me all the positive vibes you can. I am not hoping to do a five-star job at this but at least good enough to eat job.

Speaking of eating, may your tummies be full and joyful this holiday season. If for some reason your health is not the best, I wish for you a speedy recovery. 

Keeping my fingers crossed for this cooking adventure I will keep you posted.
