OneFamily's Return Trip: Munidal de Arepa

My husband's family loves any reason to get together and eat. This time, we hosted an arepa making contest, dubbed the Mundial de Arepas (Arepa World Cup). Every family had to bring their best arepa to be judged by 2 non-family members. There were arepas made from arepa harina, some made from hand milled corn, some from Bienestaria, arepjuelas from flour, and arepas made from Peto. In all 8 different arepas were entered in the competition. The winner got only bragging rights, but everyone enjoyed a laugh and a taste of all eight entries. Oh, and my gringa bread entry -- took honorable mention :)
