Diretor de efeitos especiais Eiji Tsuburaya faria aniversário neste 7 de julho

Tsuburaya, ou Elichi Tsumuraya (outra redação possível para o seu nome), nasceu em Sukagawa, Japão, e foi responsável pelos efeitos especiais de diversos filmes de ciência-ficção.

Pan de Muerto ¿De donde vino, Quien lo inventó? - viajaBonito

Se dice que el pan de muerto se originó en la época de la Conquista, y fue inspirado por los rituales prehispánicos; el gusto por la elaboración de un pan especial para el caso se remonta a la época de los sacrificios humanos y a la llegada de los españoles a la entonces Nueva España ahora México, en 1519. Cuentan que era un ritual en el México de antes de la conquista que una princesa fuera ofrecida a los dioses, su corazón aun latiendo se introducía en una olla con amaranto y después quien encabezaba el rito mordía el corazón en señal de agradecimiento a un dios.

Recipe for Garlic Rice - Life's Ambrosia Life's Ambrosia

I had never eaten at a Peruvian restaurant before so I wasn’t quite sure what to expect. As I perused the menu, my eyes came across a few words that determined my meal right then and there: Served with garlic rice. Eureka! I ordered right away and I waited patiently. About as patiently as a kid who gets up at 4am on Christmas morning patiently waits to open presents. I am not quite sure why I never thought to make garlic rice before. This rice makes the perfect side dish to serve along side the Adobo-Lime Chicken that I shared yesterday. File:Water drop impact on a water-surface - (1).jpg. Skullfiurine. Candle pic.

LTTP: Tamales

Moved here from just north of Boston. Everyone here in AZ loves Mexican food. I've always had a weird aversion to it until recently. Yeah, I don't know why either. Maybe it's me just growing up on Italian food? A couple of weeks ago, I was a guest in an acquaintances home, and his dad offered us some fresh tamales while we waited around. But no. It was one of the best "simple" foods I've ever had. Have you ever had a weird aversion to a food, tried it, and been proved wrong? Giant Cutout Sugar Skulls. The Flowers Avenue.
