Eating Through My Fridge & Pantry Experiment ~ Day 13

My need to feed? I get it from my mom, for sure. My mother had made some nice locrio for me yesterday evening. For those of you not familiar with it, locrio is a Dominican dish which is comprised of seasoned rice and some form of meat. The most common versions are Locrio de camarones (with shrimp) and Locrio de pollo (with chicken). My mom usually adds pork for Locrio de cerdo.

So after eating way too much locrio for dinner, I wrote a status update on Facebook that read "Raquelle just ate way too much of her mother's homemade locrio. Mmmmm." The following day my beau Carlos calls me up and asks, what is this lorico that your mom makes. I explained to him what locrio (not lorico) was and he said he really wanted to try some. I made the mistake of telling my mom this and she declared that she would make some locrio for my boyfriend.

This was the end result...

After telling numerous times of telling her that she didn't have to make locrio, she made a mountain of Locrio de salchicha, cerdo, y pollo. That's sausage, porkc chops and chicken. She adds peas to the mix too. Holy moly it is good and my boyfriend quite enjoyed it.

I cook for my boyfriend, my mom cooks for my boyfriend... he is one lucky man.

And I continue to fail this project. Let's hope the beau can eat most of this otherwise I'll be dining on locrio for the next week.
