Yesterday we observed el diez de Mayo with a Latin-inspired fiesta. There was no particular reason for this other than it seemed like a good day to celebrate life and enjoy the company of some Land O’Lakers.
While we love cooking, there are times when you need to throw in the towel and cater the dang party. This was one of those times. After suffering from a variety of ailments early in the week, we called on our friends at Cocina de Ana to deliver the goods.
Cocina de Ana is a take-and-bake Mexican godsend: fresh, homemade food that you order online by noon, pick up at their Plymouth storefront, heat up in your oven and then sit back and enjoy. It works equally well for a weeknight dinner as it does for a Saturday afternoon backyard gathering with 20 of your closest friends. Ana is adorable; her concept is genius and her food… que rico!
We supplemented the Chicken con Poblano, Pico de Gallo, beans and rice with corn from Cocina de Ana with some homemade brisket, guacamole, fruit pizza and mojitos. This was all enjoyed on our patio on some hideously patriotic American flag plates that Mike decided to buy when I told him to pick up paper goods. Needless to say, they did not match my creative vision but we went with them anyway. You win this round, Mr. Hearne…
Until We Eat Again,
Two Happy Cooks
