Good thing I started running again yesterday……there is so much yummy food. I love all the veggies and fruits, and the panaderia. That place is awesome!!!! Zeke and I went for a walk today to get some yummy sweet things. I love the city, love love love that there is a bakery a block away and there’s a grocery store around the corner from my house. I took a walk there yesterday for a few items(by myself). I even spoke a complete spanish sentence today at the bakery.. The guy talked back to me in English….so funny. There’s a pizza shop like two blocks away that has two for one pizzas and a great indoor play area. We’ve gone twice since we’ve been here. We also found a mall that has a great indoor play area and that mall also has strollers and little two seated wagons to rent(like 50 cents an hour). That works great for our kid’s….since a double stroller doesn’t fit on a bus or in a taxi. So back to food……..Virgina made us lunch today. It was super yummy. Rice and chicken with green beans, carrots, cilantro, red peppers and lots of flavor….plus the best smashed black beans ever. They were delicious. The picture doesn’t make it look too yummy, but it had lots of flavor.
Some other items. I really like these tubes of mayo and jam, so much
better than reaching in a jar and getting knuckles of goo. These
little cookies, “chiky” are delicious and very, very inexpensive. Jil
blogged about prices on produce the other day…….it really is
wonderful. I’ve made salsa several times and guacamole. It is so fun
to have such inexpensive and yummy produce. I love it.
Finally some picturess. I haven’t put pictures on here in a
while. Brian just downloaded the pictures from our camera dating back
a month and a half ago. It is so good to be settled…..really, really
good. I am really starting to feel more at home. (So at least I am at
this moment in time, it very well could change tomorrow.)
This would be our couch before the change. We got this book for the boys for Christmas. It’s called, “Roar of a Snore.” It’s super duper cute……I love rhyming, sing-songy books. The boys love it too and they anticipate the words. (I chopped my hair the day before we left. It feels good to have it shorter.)
They boys enjoying the yard and play equipment.
One of many of our little buddies in the back yard. (Okay, so I just like looking at them from a distance, they really freak me out!!!!)
