Happy Father’s Day

Father’s day comes at an odd time this year, as yesterday was the third anniversary of my dad passing away. My mom and I spent the weekend honoring his memory…and food was a big part of it.

Spanish food, specifically. My parents lived in Spain for many years before having me, so cooking Spanish food has become quite the tradition in my family.


We’ve been going through old albums lately and it seems like there’s always a paella or some other Spanish food involved!

My mom, Matt, and I spent last night cooking lots of tapas. We made some old favorites and added some based on what was left of our CSA.

Even though my dad is certainly missed, we tried to keep the night fun and positive. I know that’s what he would have wanted.

Happy Father’s day.
