Peruvian food, check

Ate at Sara’s Pastries and Deli near work on Jefferson at lunch.  They have some regular deli sammiches, but also a few Peruvian items.  I had an empanada and a red tamale.  I don’t usually like the taste of tamales for some reason, but I liked this one.  Tasty stuff.  Too bad I didn’t have time to try one of their tasty-looking desserts.

Please sir, I want some more.

We watched the Oliver! musical on Netflix.  I looked up gruel.  It’s basically Malt-O-Meal if you’ve ever had that…a thin hot wheat-based soupy stuff.  Porridge is a thicker version of gruel.  I like Malt-O-Meal with butter and sugar, but I’m guessing Oliver didn’t get any of those in the orphanage/workhouse.  Come to think of it, my kids have never had malt-o-meal.  Time to let them try it.  And if they ask for more, they’ll have to talk to the administrators!
