Una Nina Tiene que Comer (A Girls Got to Eat): A Cinco de Mayo Post with Really bad High School Spanish

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.

    Oh yummy! I love a great food pix! But the “green” sauce looks a little spicy. I need my food “boo la da” with the red, green and yellow peppers definiely NOT in evidence. I do still love looking at the spicy stuff — especially the veggies!

    How bad is it that I understand your Spanish and think it’s great? hmmmmm

    Feliz Cinco de Mayo!

  2. Feliz Cinco de Mayo, those huevos rancheros look positively delicious. I love comida Latina, it is my Panamanian roots, Hay que rico!

    • Garcias; asimismo. This restaurant does el desayuno right every day of the year, but I love to go on Cinco de Mayo! (Don’t you just love eating with a theme? 🙂

      I too have an affinity for Latin food. I cook a little and I live within distance of Puerto Rican, Mexican, and Cuban restaurants.

      I have been to Panama and la comida es deliciosa y la gente es agradable. Roots run deep! 😉

      • Feliz Cinco de Mayo, hope the food is the best for you today! LOL

        • Thanks! It was a good grazing day; with my Cinco de Mayo being a little cross cultural. 😉 I had Mexican Huevos rancheros with tasty café con leche; just like you saw in the post. For dinner we went for Middle Eastern food; a large Mezze platter for sharing.

          • Sounds like a perfect day to me. That’s one of the things I miss about NY, the availability of foods from around the world, and the goodness of it!
