My late and great ‘Mi Mama, Margarita” made it her favorite snack. I would like to share it with all of you and say try it, you’ll like it.

During The roaring 1920s, a Cuban socialite named Elena Ruz Valdés-Fauli asked a chef to prepare a sandwich for her with turkey, strawberry preserves, and cream cheese tucked inside in a sweet Media Noche roll at a Habana restaurant named El Carmelo. This was my late mom’s favorite and It’s best enjoyed with plantain chips and a Cuban Materva, an Ironbeer, or a Margarita.

On this first and coldest day of the season, I decided to enjoy the classic American breakfast combination of Apple Pie and Coffee.

There is a back story to this. When our family migrated from Cuba and I did not speak English, and neither did my parents. They taught me two phrases. ‘ I know nothing about politics’  and ‘ Apple Pie and Coffee’. Those were the first words I memorized learned how to say.

May the force be with you is a metaphysical and ubiquitous power in the Star Wars universe. It is wielded by "Force-sensitive" characters throughout the franchise: heroes like the Jedi who seek to become one with the Force, while the Sith and other villains exploit the Force and try to bend it toward their will.
