I am sharing a Belizean favorite recipe and today most Belizeans will be having a hearty breakfast as they get energize to have a relaxing day after jumping up over the weekend. Hope it was safe and continues to be.

Estoy compartiendo un recta favorita de Belice y hoy mayoria de los Beliceños tendra un desayuno bueno como buscaran o recuperando despues de bailar todo este fin de semana. Esperi que haya sido sano lleno de allegria y sigue siendo sano.

This recipe was shared by a great friend, she also gave  specific instructions.

This is a flawless recipe but for one or two people only - good luck doubling the recipe.

Una buen amiga compartio esta receta conmigo y dio instruciones specificas, sonriendo.
Este receta esta sin fallas pero es solo para uno o dos personas- suerte haciendo para mas gente.
