Spanish Food

A surprise for us has been the Spanish food. Growing up with Tex-Mex, we expected strong flavors with a lot of spices. That isn't the case at all. At first we thought the food was extremely bland (We had to go out and buy our own black pepper). Now we can appreciate it as just more subtle. The picture below is the lunch our host mom served this past Sunday. It is a fried egg, rice with tomato sauce, and a lightly deep-fried plantain (banana). Although it looks a little strange, the flavors all went together very well.
