Happy Birthday to me

So as I've mentioned b4, I have a very good friend of mine staying with me...and for my birthday last week we made some of my favorite Puerto Rican holiday meals to a) make up for holidays we've missed together and b)because I've been wanting this for a long time and normally only get it once a yr (Xmas)...and that's IF I go home, otherwise to make this stuff is TOO time consuming.

This is a pic of my plate it consists of Arroz con guandules (Rice with pigeon peas, which btw my daughters thought meant it was pigeon then we have my all time fave Pasteles (rectangle at the top), it's a mix made of yucca, I think they call that taro root in English, not sure though, filled with meat and one olive, wrapped (usually in a banana leaf, but this time in pastele paper sent to me from my mom from NY) then boiled to perfection! And then my moms fave Alcapurrias (don't ask me what is in English, there is no way to say that since only Puerto Ricans make (that I know of), but again it's made with taro root filled with meat and fried. LORD I was ONE HAPPY CAMPER!!! AND best part is I have some in my freezer to savor anytime I want. Did I mention I LOVE being Puerto Rican?!!
