The saying tomato/tomato, potato/potato does not apply to this dish. It is not a mere difference in pronunciation but a totally different recipe in each case. The dish called Salpicao is not the same banana in different parts of the globe.

I haven't had a post in what seems like ages. Life happens as you know and we have to deal with important things before anything else. As I have done in the past five years, I always write a celebratory post on the anniversary of this blog. I am thankful that my readers have stayed despite it all. I have made a special cake for this occasion, which, were it possible, I would have preferred to have shared with you all. Nevertheless, just thinking that you will be reading this is enough to make me smile.
