When la Abuela came over to play with Sofía, they decided to cocinar. Sofía was sooo feliz that she shouted: ¡Qué emocion! Voy a cocinar con mi Abuela! And cocinar they did! My suegra is an excellent cook and Peruvian food is what she does best. How I would love to learn to cook some of her traditional Peruvian dishes, but not even mi esposo can replicate them like she does, so I figure that there is not even the slightest ounce of hope on my side!
Maybe the talent is really a recessive gene and skips a generation? I kept my fingers crossed as Abuela announced that she was going to show Sofía how to make Lomo Saltado! She also made us una sopa de carne with zanahorias, apio, y papa!
Sofía took her piece of carne and rolled it, kneaded it and finally “cut” it into small pieces using her toddler knife! It turned into a very educational sensory culinary project!
¡Deli, deli, deli!
