History and Geography Meme 162: World Geography: The Americas: Cuba

We like Cuban-style food, so we were excited to study this country. 
We compared it was to where the last country we studied was, Costa Rica.
We made Havana Black Beans and Cuban Green Rice (here is a simplified version of the recipe, if you are interested.) While I was cooking the beans, I was beginning to have our doubts that we would like black beans and cabbage cooked together, but I am really glad I tried it because we loved it. The green rice was fine, but not as special as the black beans. The beans were different from any bean dish I have had before. It was full of flavor, but not too spicy -really delicious. We have added it to our meal rotation.

What history and geography studies have you been doing this week?

I have really enjoyed the community of homeschoolers we have built here and I encourage you to check out the links you may not have seen and make a comment on the posts.

As always I hope that you continue to link your new (and old) posts with any history and geography topic to this meme every Thursday.

All Things Beautiful


  1. I have a love hate relationship with Cuban food. Some of it I absolutely adore, others I'm rather meh on.

  2. Nice to find a dish you like well enough to add to the rotation. We could use to add a few more to ours.

  3. I love the Cuban food we have over here, but one day perhaps I shall be lucky enough to visit Cuba and discover that the real stuff is altogether different - maybe it's even better!


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. It means so much.
