Puerto Rican Sandwich Spread (Sandwichitos de mezcla)

Puerto Rican sandwich spread (sandwichitos de mezcla) is a staple in every party, event or family gathering in Puerto Rico.

What is it? It's a creamy and delish mixture of cheese, luncheon meat, pimentos and cream cheese nicely spread between two slices of white bread. FYI, this is not healthy at all, but oh so good! 

During this past holiday I hosted a party at home. Guess what I served? Yes, sandwichitos de mezcla, and they were a hit with both the kids and adults.

Nurturing Lifelong Friendships

There is truly nothing like having friends.  

Growing up with friends,  sharing experiences, bonding with each other, and eventually becoming adult friends has so many benefits.  Friendships will boost your happiness especially when they are lifelong friends. 💗

My son is an only-child, and I strive to make sure he has friends.  He actually has some very close friends since he was a toddler, and although at times its hard for them to meet-up because of the parent's busy schedule (including myself) he knows they are his friends.

DIY Three Kings Ornaments

Epiphany is in 5 days, and we are so excited!  Of course, our Christmas tree is still up and we're making Three Kings Ornaments.

This year I really wanted to make these ornaments,  and it's really hard, and nearly impossible to find king shaped cookie cutters.  So I made my own, and so can you. You just need a little bit of creativity.

Three Kings Salt Dough Ornaments

Use aluminium cookie cutters that you can reshape:

New Years Eve Global Traditions

For as long as I have been married we have never celebrated New Years Eve how it is celebrated it in Puerto Rico.  In Puerto Rico families gathers to eat, sing aguinaldos, light up fireworks, and after the clock hits 12 midnight everyone listens to El Brindis del Bohemio.

Christmas in Puerto Rico: Puerto Rican Roast Pork

The Puerto Rican roast pork or as it's commonly known "lechón asado" is a staple in every menu across the island during the Christmas holiday. Served with arroz con gandules (rice with pigeon peas), guineos en escabeche (pickled green bananas), pasteles (similar to tamales), and ensalada de coditos (cold pasta salad) it is an explosion of flavors and pure deliciousness!

Be warned! This menu is not for those on a diet! 👀

Multicultural Resources for Raising World Citizens

When my baby was born (8 years ago) I was sure of one thing. I wanted to raise him to embrace his multiculturalism, and to become a global citizen. 



Besides, exposing him to foods, and books from other countries I also rely on resources such as the Diversity Calendar and Games Around the World that I am featuring today. These are resources  you can use to help you raise a world citizen.
