Like many typical latino families you kind of knew what kind of meals your mom was most likely going to make. If she didn’t feel like cooking that day it meant you were going to have frijoles aka beans for all three meals that day. Of course salvadorean dishes are delicious, but your mom wasn’t trying to make a full feast everyday. A typical weekend breakfast was most likely to include: frijoles, platanos, crema, and huevos.
When friends would come over I had to explain that we weren’t gonna be having pancakes or that typical American breakfast.
