In this lesson I will educate you how to say Content New Calendar year in Spanish. I will also inform you how Xmas is celebrated in Colombia while instructing you some new vocabulary phrases.
This is how you say Pleased New Year in Spanish:
“Feliz año nuevo!” But in Colombia they simply say “Feliz año!”
My initial yr in Colombia I celebrated the Xmas holiday seasons in Barranquilla, Colombia. But each and every year soon after that I celebrated the Xmas holiday seasons in Medellin. Barranquilla and Medellin, just like the rest of Latin The usa, really celebrate Christmas on Christmas Eve, the 24th.
Each 12 months, I have a common Colombian Xmas meal right here: A dinner consisting of “pollo relleno” (stuffed rooster), “buñuelos” (I might describe these as fried cheese balls), “natilla” (raw sugar pudding).
The only distinction between my Xmas supper in Barranquilla and my the a single in Medellin is that my new “novia paisa” (girlfriend from Medellin) cooked the “pollo relleno” from scratch. The pollo relleno that I had on the coast of Colombia was already pre-cooked when obtained from the
“supermercado” and was previously stuffed with “carne, aceitunas, y huevos.” ( new year status , olives and eggs).
Currently being a non-traditionalist, I discovered myself cooking a couple of non-Colombian dishes for my “paisita” on Christmas Eve. The very last time I went to New York I created confident that I purchased all the Puerto Rican and Dominican cooking substances that I would want to just take again right here to Medellin to prepare dinner some
Puerto Rican or Dominican dishes that I had learned from Boricua (Puerto Rican) and Dominican friends in New York.
From New York, I introduced back Sazón, Adobo, Cilantro and, of program, Sofrito. I would explain “Sofrito” as a somewhat”picante” (spicy) Puerto Rican tomato sauce.
And with individuals components, I managed to cook Puerto Rican or Dominican fashion dishes of “arroz amarillo” (yellow rice) and “habichuelas” (stewed red beans). But in Medellin, the word “habichuelas” indicates “string beans” and “frijoles” indicates “beans.”
