latin jazz and food: a two part haiku

following sights, sounds,
toward our hang-out we stroll
a crowd gathering

Latin jazz hopping,
arroz con gandules* with
tostones** and beer.

*arroz con gandules: rice with pigeon peas

**tostones: fried green plantains

This looks like a muy cool place to hang out! I was so spoiled when I lived in the desert south west- so much great latin music & flavour!

Pigeon peas! Wonderful. I first had them in the Bahamas and find they're highly underappreciated in these parts. Very cool to have those options close to you.

Bazu! I love the combination of the pictures and the haiku. Looks like lots of fun!

What a great night out. Those tostones look even better than the ones I had in Vieques!

That looks like a fun evening. Good music, good food. Yum! And I see that bottle of beer in the background ;o)so add good drink to the mix.
I loved your baking post below. Delicious looking cupcakes. I hope to hear that the rats found good homes. Seeing and hearing things about animals being put down for no good reason makes me so sad - especially after these little guys were saved from the lab. I'm hoping for good news.

just wanted to let you know that we adopted 3 of the rat boys last night...turns out the syracuse foster lives less than two blocks away from us so we just walked over there with a carrier and picked up the new "kids". thanks for bringing them to our attention!
