This is a chocolate styled shoutout to No Cool Story and all those shivering in the frigid weather.
There's nothing I love more on a cold winter day than to stick my Abuelita into the crockpot accompanied by a few cups of milk, and then cook her to a rich, chocolatey brown perfection. I keep my Abuelita stored away in the cupboard but we do bring her out for special occasions. Our Abuelita is browner than most of the family, but thats okay, we're not racist. We adore her just the way she is. It doesn't offend her in the least when we mix in a little vanilla either. My kids love their Abuelita so much that they fight to be close to her and tell her all the time how very good and sweet she is.
Feareth not for the Infidel Grandmothers,I'm referring to this Abuelita. Made with all the things that are right with this world like cocoa, sugar, and a heavy dose of cinnamon; Abuelita really cheers us up on a dreary, drizzly day. We see more of her than our regular Mexi Grandma, and she's infinitely more comforting and warm too. No, Abuelita never disappoints and she's always there for us in our time of need. We're bonafide Abuelita lovers! However, given the majority of Spanish speakers in good old Houston, that is a phrase which I shall never scream out loud at the Fiesta grocery store. Especially because it makes the other love of our life, Milo, insanely jealous. We're not selfish. Come on down, and we'll share some of our Abuelita with you too. All of the pleasure, none of the "You didn't write me a thank you note because you don't care about me" guilt that your regular Grandma gives you!
