So today is mother’s day in Paraguay. With every holiday that goes by, people want to know how we celebrate it in the US. Mother’s day was no different. I said most families had a family lunch/dinner with maybe breakfast in bed for mom in the morning and things like that. So I offered to make pancakes for breakfast last night for a little cultural exchange.
The response I got was: “Pancakes? Tomorrow, for… BREAKFAST???”
Apparently pancakes are not a culturally acceptable breakfast item here, so we rescheduled/compromised for “merienda” hour (snack/pre-dinner around 4 or 5).
Anyways, rewind to this morning and the humorous part was that I woke up for breakfast and what did I eat? A cup of instant coffee with buttered bread rolls with honest to goodness POPCORN on top of them! Oh man. I love Paraguay so much in moments like this. We live in such a different world down here!
I hope your day was just as interesting. On this side of the hemisphere, I just ate a delicious pile of pancakes I made with my mom’s recipe from home with the delicious sweet nectar that is maple syrup. So I’m doing alright.
I still have most of the can left. Next on the list: French toast. Come visit me.
