One thing I love about living in Miami is that it is a very diverse culture around here. So many different kinds of people with so many different backgrounds. Everyone is happy to be in America, but proud of where they came from. We love to talk about the similarities and differences in our lives from schooling to marriage, to religion, to FOOD. Oh man, we just love the food from all of our different cultures. One of our favorite things to do is to get together, each of us bringing a dish from our culture or country and then we share why or how it is significant to us.
We recently had one of those days at work where we all bring different foods. I brought Black Beans because we Cubans make them differently than any other country. All countries have their style of beans but we just do it differently – so as odd as it is, I brought some white rice and a container of black beans for everyone to try. My friend Sue is Asian and she brought meatballs. I laughed when she said that because meatballs are typically Italian, but she said these were not in any way, shape, or form like those.
