On the morning of the third Christmas party planned for the outdoors, Edmundo wakes to threatening skies and wild winds across the terrace. He really is starting to wonder who’s behind the disruption of all his careful planning.
But as we sit down to lunch I hear his sisters, Tere and Elizabeth and so many other relatives rejoicing in how wonderful the weather is – so cool for a change for Miami!
The menu today is very Cuban but I’m surprised to see that the youngest generation don’t really appreciate what great uncle Edmundo has turned on for them. My favourite treat is the empanadas maybe it’s my Aussie ‘meat pie’ heritage.
I thought there’d be extras, and some roast pork loin and prunes to savour over the Christmas holiday when Regina was enjoying days off, but, alas, Edmundo gave all the food left-overs away! On learning this, I had no compunction in asking him to phone back to the house and ask Regina to retrieve a slice of pork and put it in the refrigerator for me.
