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?

The food looks out of this world. That cake looks ridiculous!!! Oreos AND strawberries? Talk about a paradox 🙂

That cake really is a masterpiece 🙂
oh wow!!!! i love spanish food.. i think i should be declaring your site my official spanish food porn site.. lol
i havent said good bye to anyone lately.. maybe someone will move in my family.. haha
There have not been any goodbyes in my life recently, but if there were, I’d bring that cake!! My goodness, it looked like heaven on a plate. Great idea volunteering to cut the cake, I do that too…and I always end up with a great piece!
That cake is the most gorgeous dessert I’ve ever seen! How does cake follow you around so much? Why doesn’t it follow me??
Haha, I guess, it’d be bad if it did. I have no self control for that!
I always invite avocadoes to a party.
that care looks incredible. i think i drooled on my computer while reading that post! yum!
all this food looks incredible.

That cake looks like it’s really something!
I’ve never tried yucca. It looks like roasted red onion – which I love.
