I made a traditional Romanian dish called Mamaliga cu Branza. We have it quite a bit. It tastes better than it looks. It is a quick meal to eat but it also tastes good. We often have it on Sundays. Both my parents had it when they were growing up in Romania. We want to keep preparing Romanian foods and we don’t want to forget all the things my family went through back in Romania. My family has always been preparing this dish, so I don’t know when the tradition started. The best part of this tradition is that my family gathers together to have a meal that we all enjoy eating. A challenge that I had when making this dish was having to constantly stir the cornmeal in the water so that it didn’t become clumpy. The greatest success was having it taste the same as when my mom or grandma makes it. I am proud that I made it smooth just the way my family likes it.
