We went to Jessenia's house for dinner again. I love going to her house. She's so welcoming and I always feel like family when we're there. I had to ask Kathy how to word it, but the next time I see her, I'll be able to say, "Quien estoy a su casa, me seinto como familia" :o) yay! She made sopa de queso. First she fried cheese/corn flour tortes in oil (which were pretty tasty on their own) and then made the soup. It's made with a dense, salty cheese, chicken stock, and whatever vegetables are on hand. In this case, we had tomatoes, green chillies, and onion. Once the soup is ready, the deep fried tortes are added to it. It was very good, but I was parched later, due to the super high sodium level in the soup! The cheese and chicken stock combined made for an extremely salty dish. But it was delicious.
I've been trying to get a video of Drew with the garden, giving a tour of the sprouts, etc. But it has been so windy lately, that I can't get a decent video. I'll have to try and find a time of day when the wind has died down, because he gives one heck of a tour and it'd be fun to post here and share with you all. His birthday is coming up in about a week and a half and he can hardly stand the wait. He's been making to-do lists for me. "Mom... you've only got 11 days to make a cake, go to the toy store, get a pinata...." guess I'd better get to work on that list!
