SpeedSpeak2me SpeedSpeak2me how’d the cast iron fare?
Surprisingly well. It was fairly new, and recently cleaned and oiled. You can see the circle where the container was sitting, but none of the plastic melted or stuck to it. I think I caught it before it got to that point. Oven was set to 400Âş, but I caught it when it showed about 325Âş, which is closer to 275Âş in my oven. The small dots are from some water droplets. I'll give it a wash, and re-coat it for next use.

It’s not pizza Friday, it’s Latino Friday. One of my daughter’s prego cravings has been Rican food. Her Hubby grew up proper white so he ain’t a fan. The Wife and Daughter went down to the city for a late Rican lunch. Told her grab me some dinner. The appetizers I’ll save for tomorrow

That the white Indiana way? Cause Ricans dont put Jalapenos, they do put green olives though.
Did she use homemade sofrito or store bought in a can/jar? Thats the key to good Rican rice imo, its gotta be homemade sofrito.

Yes jala and canned sofrito. We used to hang out with some hoodrat Mexicans and this is how they made it so we carried it on.

And this household hates olives. Hates.
There lies the issue, Mexicans teaching you how to make Puerto Rican rice lol. Looked good, I'm not a fan of a ton of Gandules in my rice and yours had a lot.
Im the opposite, I love the green olives, so if my Wife is making a Rican dish, she puts extra for me. My guys Mom always asks is Chawn (thats how she pronounces my name) coming over for dinner. If he says yes, she puts extra olives for me lol. My guy gets pissed and tells him Mom "fuck that nigga, I'm your son not him". Then I hit him with the "your mom loves this dick nigga, thats why". I dont say that in front if his mom though, she would slap the shit out of me.
Have you and your girl ever had authentic Rican food, from a legit Rican family or a Rican restaurant?
