Right now, YOU are craving

Did you try any cigars when you were in Puerto Rico ? They were once among the top 5 best producers of hand rolled cigars , I bet they are pretty good too.

Phillipines too , I am guessing that they must have been one of the oldest growers of tobacco in Asia (one of the only benefits of the Spanish empire , its smokes ).

I’ve got to say I admire your maternal granma’s style but I would be too worried with burning my tongue hahaha ! :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

My immediate craving is for some Panamanian tamal de olla.

My secondary craving is for… a certain friend wink wink nudge giggle

My deep longing is to be able to travel freely to and from Panama.

No, did not smoke a cigar while I was in Puerto Rico. If I’d known about them being in the top 5 handrolled cigar makers, I probably would have!

Hmm, that might be true about the Philippines. I remember my husband & I sharing a Cuban (sadly, not Filipino) cigar on Boracay beach at night, listening to the tide ebb and flow, during one of our trips there - actually, our honeymoon, now that I think about it. It was a great memory.

Maybe the moisture inside Lola’s (Grandma’s) mouth prevented any burns, hahaha!

An egg tart right now would be nice. Would be better if it’s warm and consumed while in front of a beautiful view.

Non-food… a social media break. Can’t do it now but I probably will by the end of next month.

Especially if it’s Portuguese egg tarts.
