One week ago today was Myrna’s last day at my agency. 😦 To see her off, the early childhood department did what it does best: FOOD!!
We loaded the conference room with all manner of goodies: Angela’s salad, chips, salsa, my yuca and onions, avocados, Mildred’s morro de frijolies, Belkis’ potato salad, roasted chicken, steak, two-bite appetizers, and more!
Mi plato con yuca, morro de frijoles, ensalada, aguacate, carne, y pollo:
I loooooooove these limey onions I made for the yuca. I am so glad I have coworkers who can school me in Dominican cooking!
Katty came through with this masterpiece from the bakery on the corner for dessert:
No kidding. I suppose one slice of cake per week won’t hurt me …
I did the slicing honors (of course), so I made sure to connect myself with a slice containing Oreo AND strawberry:
Oh right, there was some melty soupy French Silk ice cream as well:
I definitely had more scoops of ice cream. I cannot resist the melt!
The food from this meal kept on giving and giving. I had leftovers for lunch the next day:
And leftover yuca in a coconut bowl (yet another coconut that I beat into submission with the dull side of my machete):
And leftover yuca with oatmeal and more coconut:
Seriously, yuca, oatmeal, and coconut together in a bowl: what a party! Next time, I will need to invite avocado, peanut butter, and plantains — that will be a REAL fiesta.
Myrna, thanks for yet another excuse to overeat on the job 😛 We will miss you tons and tons!
To whom have you said goodbye recently, and which foods did you invite to the party?
