Spring always makes me inexplicably mopey, to the degree that I sometimes have trouble putting food in my mouth on the regular. If you have this problem, too, I have a few suggestions for meals you can survive on until May.
One of my first food memories is hanging out with Mimi and cooking Arroz con Pollo. It’s seemed like we used to eat Cuban chicken and rice at least once a week. As a grown-up, it’s still one of my favorites, reminds me of home and family.
Fact: I cannot spell “fettuccine” to save my life. I always have to look it up. If I’m ever in a hostage situation where someone is pointing a gun at my head, saying “you can save everyone by spelling ‘fettuccine,’” well, sorry guys.
