Puerto Rican Fried Rice

There is just two of us in our little house, which results in a lot of leftovers sometimes.  Especially when it comes to rice. We like rice, no we love rice.  Rice is to Puerto Ricans what potatoes are to Americans. Growing up in a Puerto Rican home the standard meal was rice, beans and…

I am allergic to the phone. Seriously, this is a real thing. Right? Phone talking allergies? I hate making phone calls! Talking on the phone is the worst.

Ternera

What have you been up too? I am on a hunt.  A hunt for a house in Dallas. It’s amazing how hard it is to find a house without carpet.  Then sometimes I find one without carpet, but it has wood paneling or worse floral wallpaper.  Next week OB and I head down to Dallas…
