My Everything! I absolutely love this woman, my mom @neldamedina, who people say I take after in looks, personality and spirit. Not a bad thing when she's pretty darn awesome! So lucky to have her as my mother. Thank you for all that you do; miss you already Mom!
Mom's Meatloaf! On my last night in Texas before heading back home to Manila (via LA for a spell), my Mom made her oh-so-delicious meatloaf and mashed potatoes with green beans, with all my siblings and their kids at her house for he "hasta luego" dinner. I loved for Meatloaf Night at the Castañeda house growing up! Thank you so much @neldamedina for the special treat, but most importantly for being so incredibly special!
Following a whirlwind trek to New York and Tampa, made it back home to Texas in time for this... my late Father's Tortilla Soup, made by my amazing sister @gaalva81 using the actual handwritten recipe card my Dad used to use when he made it himself, and served in the original bowls my Dad bought specifically for this dish. Had two bowls of this deliciousness! Thank you Gina; love you so much! #BestSisterEver
