Comida Española

I somehow missed the gene for other-language-mastery. My mother speaks French fluently and beautifully, and I guess I thought that would just pass down the bloodline somehow. But after four years of taking French in high school and college, I still pronounce “croissant” with a “t” at the end (disclaimer: I actually spelled “croissant” wrong just now – even auto-correct has a language leg up on me).

I do think it’s important to try new things, keep challenging yourself, get your brain moving, and all that jazz. So I am tackling learning a new language again, but trying my hand at Spanish this time, self-taught-style. My current lesson plans include DuoLingo paired with watching a show or movie I am kind of embarrassed to be watching (or re-watching), but dubbed in Spanish, so it’s PART OF THE LEARNING, OKAY?

I’m also learning more about Spanish culture, and holy wow do they have some amazing cuisine. I wanted to share my Spanish learning experience thus far with y’all, and took a former recipe, which is an all time favorite of mine, but put a Spanish twist on it. Enjoy!

    • We would be pretty compatible conversation partners! As long as we were enjoying a fresh baguette & some wine while swearing about how we don’t know what we’re saying, I think we’re golden.

    • Astute. Probably also a little mad that no one pronounces his name right. Weirdly, it was easier to find stock photos of “sad croissants” than “mad croissants.” The internet is a big, weird place.

    • Gracias! I can talk about animals and eating and drinking…but that’s about it so far. Hopefully someone will ask me in Spanish if the monkey drinks milk – then I’m set🙂
