This is Annie. She is 17 years old and has her own tapioca stand and her head on the right place. During the day she goes to school and in the afternoon she makes tapioca flour, which is incredibly labor intensive. At night she sells her lovely tapiocas. I miss her. I miss her tapiocas, specially the ones that were filled with bananas and sweetened condensed milk with a touch of nutella.
Below you'll see cute Annie preparing tapioca. This is how tapioca is made and commercialized in
Brazil, kind of like a calzone with delicious awesome filling. The one below has sun dried meat and cheese and tomatoes. Yum, my favorite.
Enzo loved going to her tapioca stand, as did baby Maria. Enzo always had the one with cheese and ham and baby Maria got the chicken and cheese. Christian would immediately go for the sweet ones. I don't blame him, that's why I always had two.
