The Ramadan is going to start tomorrow. So the occasion to wish رمضان مبارك (Ramadan Mubarak) to everyone who celebrates it with this handmade postcard sent Phillip (the USA).
It arrived with three uncancelled Delicioso Forever stamps. With them, the USPS "celebrates the influence of Central and South American, Mexican and Caribbean foods on American cuisine. This booklet of 20 stamps features six dishes from an array of Latin American culinary traditions that have found new life and variations in the United States".
Thanks to Phillip and Bryon I have got the whole delicious set!
Oh, tamales! It's been ages ago since I ate them. I've tasted the version of Nicaragua and the version of Aruba and I loved both. The latter in NL, offered by a former housemate whose mother had sent parts of the ingredients straight from the island to her, including banana leaves. She was so happy to make tamales after years living abroad, feeling the warmth of her home-place again, and I was happy she shared them with me :-)ReplyDelete
To all who celebrate, Ramadan mabrook/mobarak!Delete
I have great memories of ceviches and sancochos, from the time we shared our apartment with an Ecuadorian friend who loves cooking...Delete
I never get to live with people who love cooking, alas...Delete
Having said that, now here in Canterbury in the Dane John Gardens a Latin American family has taken the refreshments hut, and they make nice empanadas.Delete
You need to enrol your children in cooking lessons... ;)Delete
It looks like it got a little bit dinged in travel, but it made it. And nice to see you already have the full set of these fun stamps. I wasn't going to get any initially, but they are a lot nicer in person than on scans, I think.ReplyDelete
Yes, including an strange little hole next to the stamps (?). I'm glad that you bought these eventually. As I wrote above, some of them bring me good memories!Delete
I hope nobody was trying to look inside :)Delete
I think just a random machine handling injury.
Well, you wrote clearly that there was nothing inside...Delete
Les timbres sont tres joli. Comment est la traduction pour les mots en Arabe?ReplyDelete
Merci, Eva! Pour souhaiter un ramadan heureux on dit Ramadan Mubarak. On peut utiliser aussi la formule Ramadan Karim.Delete
