Hola Amigos y Familia,
I’ve gotten muy buena feedback on my comida pictures. I’ve decided to make a food related picture post a regular feature on the blog. Mi amigos can confirm that I’ve been snapping pictures of my plate; their plates; while looking over at other people’s plates; for a good while. I know this behavior goes against, my Grandma Inez’, admonishment to “keep your eyes on your own plate”
and basic standards of etiquette and decorum but, I can’t help myself. I think the only reason I still get invitations to dine is because my friends are equally as fanatical about food. Also, they need someone to split the check with. Dime con quien adas y dedre quien eres – show me your friends and I’ll tell you who you are.
So stay tuned for the food pictures. I hope you will enjoy them as much as I like taking them. I’m also hoping this passion for food in a picture surpasses my passion for food on my palate; it could result in an expanded wallet and a whittled waistline.
In honor of Cinco de Mayo and my first A Girls Got to Eat post here is a picture of the Huevos Rancheros I had para el desayuno de hoy. El restaurante is a “tenured” establishment en el barrio and I am a regular because the food is excellent, economical and the vibe is unaffected and chill. These things are muy importante and are near extinct in my neighborhood; ever since it has become one of the “it places” to live in Brooklyn.
Feliz Cinco de Mayo.
