Pupusa Party!

Carol Jacques

Every year the Mount Washington Association hosts a Summer Fun Meeting for the community. This year the theme will be Pupusa Party. The party will be held at the Mount Washington Multipurpose Center at our local Elementary School on July 17, from 3 to 5pm.

If you haven't ventured into a pupuseria this is your opportunity to try this tasty traditional Salvadorian dish. The menu will consist of vegetarian and meat pupusas topped with curtido (pickled cabbage) and salsa, as well as plantains topped with crema and some traditional Salvadorian beverages.

Nixtamal is the base of the corn dough from which pupusas and corn tortillas are made. The process of making the dough was developed in Mesoamerica between 1500 and 1200 BC. The pupusa was first created by the Pipil tribes that dwelt in the territory known as El Salvador.

We are looking for a marimba band to make this event a truly authentic Salvadorian cultural experience. Bring the whole family to this fun summer event.
