I wonder what skinny folks think about!
I don't know how it works when Christmas is in July but it is a well-known fact that when Christmas falls in December there are no calories in anything you eat between getting up on Christmas Eve morning and going to bed on New Years Day night.

That may be how the British calories work. In the US, we have a caloric dispensation from the end of November when we celebrate Thanksgiving through New Years Day night. So, all this weight I gained must be due to a medical condition.

Traditional Christmas dinners for Cuban people are usually suckling pig roasted over coals or in the ground similar to Hawaiian pig digs.
Black beans and rice are the staple dish in the Cuban home with red beans coming in second.
Chick peas are also very popular in this culture.

In addition to the above, the Cuban people will make Yucca and a very greasy topping we called Mojito Malanga. (check spelling). My dad would call it yucca malanga. We knew what he meant......lol
I for one loved this dish. But, I don't care for the yucca without the mojito malanga.
Tostones are required at the table. But the Cubans usually make baked or fried sweet ripe plantains. Tostones are green plantains and are treated differently.
Mt dad always told me tostones were Puerto Rican. Not sure how accurate that statement was.

I will remind my doctor of that fact next January. I will tell him I was sure I heard him tell me to eat heartily during the holidays. In fact he gives me the same reminder every year. I was only following his orders.
