Independence and Cuban Churros

Standard

O.D. Churroman was my source for churros on this side of the continental United States.

Mami is capable of making churros, but I have failed to get her to make them for me.

Last weekend it was so cold you could see your breath. It wasn’t until Mami was already over (to watch our show) that we thought about churros.

It has been cold and raining all day. I asked Mami is she would be coming over to watch our show and would she like to make churros together? It was just too cold and rainy for her. The show would just have to wait… as would the churros.

That was when I decided it was time to stop waiting for someone else. It was time for me to make my own churros.

So I did.

I took 1 cup of flour.
I added 1 cup of water. (Because I’m a lactard and didn’t have any milk in the house… not even Lactaid, otherwise I’d use 1/2 a cup of water and 1/2 a cup of milk)
I added a bit of salt. (Because I forgot about softening the butter and didn’t feel like waiting)
I remembered that O.D. Churroman added anise to his churros, so I added some anise.
Abuela had already told me where to find her “churrera”┬áso I pulled it out, heated the oil and fried away!

I made my own churros cubanos.
I did it without O.D. Churroman.
I did it without Mami.
I am an independent woman.
