PushStart's Cena Tica
Thursday, December 8th
So, I'm sure by now you've heard me gush about our recent trip to Costa Rica! Ten days in "the happiest country on earth!" Did wonders for the spirit and definitely helped in working up a solid appetite. In honor of our trip back "home," we've brought back some menus inspired by the comida tipica of the Tico kitchen. I wouldn't go as far as to say that these are truly authentic plates as much my honest try at honoring the food traditions of my adopted nation, my home away from home. We would love to have you in to share a meal with us...and don't worry, I won't pull out the slide show of our photos. I promise. NO, seriously.
