EmpanadasI will not see my grandma for Christmas this year, so I'm posting a holiday tribute for her! Fortunately family and friends recently celebrated her 84th birthday this June, so I have pictures to share.
Flag of Guam.
My grandma hails from Guam, a micronesian island located in the western Pacific Ocean. Historically a Spanish colony, today Guam serves as a U.S. naval base and Japanese tourist hot-spot. I have never been to this sunny island, but I certainly enjoy the local cuisine.
Latiya. My favorite! Basically layered vanilla custard sponge cake.
Merry Christmas Grandma!
