Girl Bread Baby

This was from my local NJ Ecuadorian bakery (what... you don't have one?!)

 

In Equador, “Guaguas de Pan” breads (taste like buttery dinner rolls) like these are made for All Saints Day and All Souls Day. People furnish the graveyards with flowers and cards. They stay all day near the graveyard and “share” the food with the deceased. Typically, it goes with “Colada Morada” (Purple Porridge), beverage made of fruits and aromatic herbs. The drink I had tasted like warmed berry juice with pineapple slices.
