Mi hermano, my big brother Karim just flew in from a year in Bolivia, and decided to make a weekend visit in Toronto to come see me (and others of course!). I was so happy to see him. Here’s the story of one of our weekend adventures!
Feel the love! Mi hermano y yo, my brother Karim and I.
Karim spent the weekend with my cousin and her husband. Sunday we decided to make a traditional Bolivian meal Silpancho from scratch.
When I walked in with the appetisers (mini tacos!) The team was already hard at work.
If you have the misfortune of knowing my silly self in person, you’d know that I like to sing random songs. One of them inspired by these mini tacos that I have my whole family singing all the time. Yet they say IM the crazy one! 😉
This is the Silpancho. Its rice, with a ground beef fried patty, covered with a fried egg topped with some lightly dressed salad. The juice in the back is soo yummy and its called Chicha.
I didn’t dress up too much (In my opinion at least!) This vintage Nu Mode metalic dress is from a clothing swap. I seem to have an addiction to this old Toronto Brand. I have so many pieces from Nu Mode. The colours are really quite awesome, purple, peacock and bronze sheen. A shirt-dress, with power sleeves and a waist cinching belt. I added a homemade orange hair flower, and a vintage BVLGARI bag that my mom had thrifted for me long ago.
We had gotten some snow, so I threw on some cowboy boots from Urban Outfitters last boxing week. I think the deal made them come out to $30. My hair has a side roll to it, with the flower accenting it again.
Here are a couple more pictures of the night.
Hasta Luego amigos y amigas x
