Every Saturday, Maria Lili looks forward to making chicken sancocho with her grandparents, Mama Ana and Papa Angelino. But one Saturday they discover that there is nothing in the house except eggs. Maria Lili wonders how they will get all the ingredients they need to have their favorite meal with no money to purchase them. Mama Ana has a plan though, and taking the eggs with her, she invites her granddaughter to come with her to the market. With a bit of ingenuity, will Mama Ana find a way to get the ingredients needed to make this favorite family dish? Featuring cooking, Latinx family traditions, and a bit of math as well, this delightful multicultural tale even includes a recipe for this popular dish.
