Havana Road in Towson, MD

New restaurant alert! Havana Road in Towson is authentic, delicious and has sparkly twinkle lights wrapped in the rafters. Plus, everything there feels very like "home". In college I was able to study in Cuba for a couple of weeks and the trip to Havana Road brought back memories of dining in Havana's popular "paladares": restaurants literally run out of people's homes where you dine in their kitchen on the best croquetas, ropa vieja, picadillo, and mojo that you will ever eat!

Oh and another awesome thing about Havana Road....they have great recipes on their website for traditional Cuban dishes! Mi esposo cubano seria un hombre feliz :) croquetas de jamón


Tuesday Book List...

I like to make a list sometimes of books that I would like to read or re-read in the coming months (nerd alert!) and wanted to see what you guys think!  Any good "must reads" out there that I haven't considered? Currently re-reading "The Catcher in the Rye" - I love re-reading books that I sort of read (and often not at all) in high school to see how my perspective has changed :)

Here is my "Reading List" (very official sounding):

"The Dirty Life" by Kristin Kimball

"The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time" by Mark Haddon

Re-read List:

"Ferdinand" by Munro Leaf

"Tess of the D'Urbervilles" by Thomas Hardy
