Yesterday, ten of my students came over to make a parillada (a cook-out). It was a lot of fun, but unfortunately, Eileen was sick so she was in bed all day.
Freddy, the guy you see below, was pretty much the master chef. He claimed he wasn’t a chef, but he was pretty comfortable in the kitchen. He made this amazing orange vinagrette salad dressing, and his aji (hot sauce) was also wonderful. We grilled steak, pork chops, and about four different kinds of sausage.
After we ate, they brought out the cake and had me blow out the question mark candle.
