Turn on your speakers . . . to an aguinaldo midi sing-a-long. Each week a different aguinado.


Sancocho
This traditional Puerto Rican stew includes some of our favorites ingredients such as green bananas, plantains, and yautias. Mami made the best sancocho ever. First there was the mash, mash, mash, and plop from the pilón. Then the sizzle of the onions and garlic dancing in the oil. Later, the mouth watering aroma that lingered in the kitchen and wafted thru the house as well and all the way to el patio de atras. The neighborhood knew Mami was cooking up something good. But, this was Puerto Rico, the streets were full of deliciously spicy scents. I prefer to make this hot delicious stew in the winter months just to keep the kitchen warm and keep everyone on their toes. Yes, it's terribly cold outside, but I'm cooking something good! recipe

Abreme la puerta, ábreme la puerta
que estoy en la calle
y dirá la gente, que ésto es un desaire.
y dirá la gente, que ésto es un desaire.

~ Coro ~
A la zarandela, a la zarandela
a la zarandela, de mi corazón.
a la zarandela chiquita, a la zarandela
a la zarandela, de mi corazón.

Allá dentro veo, allá dentro veo
un bulto tapao
no sé si será, un lechón asao,
no sé si será , un lechón asao.

~ Coro ~
A la zarandela, a la zarandela
a la zarandela, de mi corazón.
a la zarandela chiquita, a la zarandela
a la zarandela, de mi corazón.

A darte un asalto, a darte un asalto
venimos cantando
todos bien alegres, con mucho entusiasmo
todos bien alegres, con mucho entusiasmo.

~ Coro ~
A la zarandela, a la zarandela
a la zarandela, de mi corazón.
a la zarandela chiquita, a la zarandela
a la zarandela, de mi corazón.
