Puerto Rican platter of comfort

After days of hard work repainting our living room walls blue, rearranging furniture, and rehanging pictures, it is all finished! My goal was to complete the job before my immune-suppressing infusion tomorrow, which often leaves me even more fatigued than usual.

The big treat Mama and I planned for ourselves upon completing this massive home project was to order Puerto Rican food delivery. El Coqui, a fantastic local restaurant, has been offering its own delivery services of family platters to different towns on various days of the week (Santa Rosa is on Tuesdays).

The platter came with Pollo al Horno (delicious baked chicken thighs marinated in a special seasoning), black beans, rice, and sweet plantains. We got an extra side of plantains because I’m obsessed. And the owner, Tina, delivered it herself and very kindly added a couple of flans for us—along with two very sweet notes on the boxes! They even called us before delivery because of our issue with cilantro! We were impressed with the thoughtful, caring people and the food was INCREDIBLE! With only two of us, the platter was plenty of food for tonight’s dinner and it will be tomorrow’s dinner after my treatment!

Today’s #OneGoodThing with Mama a wonderful Puerto Rican platter of comfort! Thank you Tina of El Coqui in Santa Rosa for your kindness and delicious food!!! What was your #OneGoodThing today? Please share in the comments! And remember, kindness is everything!

Day 147 of 366. And Day 1,608 in a row (here’s the first 366, & the following 365, & the third year of 365 good things, & the 4th year of good things)!

On this day…
