My first attempt at Cuban mojo pork. I used this recipe from Lemon Blossoms. I started off cooking pork shoulder with all the ingredients in a slow cooker. Then got the meat crispy in the oven. So tasty!

I think I’ll try marinating the pork shoulder overnight, next time.

Memories of Rice

After two attempts, I think I finally understand what goes into “Spanish/Mexican Rice.”

The flavors of tomato sauce, spices and chopped onions held up quite nicely with white rice.
Cardenas Spanish Rice
Inside the newsroom on Cinco de Mayo, my co-worker shared his wife’s rice as part of a Mexican breakfast potluck.
