Monday Dec 22. 2014 Update!

On Saturday we had a little mini photo-shoot with one of my baby nieces. It was  a lot of hard work, but it was very enjoyable at the same time. It took about 5-6 hours to complete the photo shoot. I still can’t believe its almost Christmas in less than 3 day. Ahhhh! I’m freaking out! I haven’t brought any presents or done any errands. I’m usually the one who has everything ready 1-2 weeks before. Unfortunately, I got sick 2 weeks before Christmas. I might have to run errands later today with one my younger sisters to help me out.

I just finished talking to my mom and we have decided our menu for Christmas.

  • Mexican Posole-It is a brothy stew with pork and hominy. – But I usually make my posole vegetarian friendly. 🙂
  • Atole de leche,  – Which is pretty much is a traditional cornstarch-based Mexican and Central American hot drink
  • Atole de tamarindo- It is tamarind hot drink serve with tamales
  •  Atole de Arroz- Mexican Rice pudding
  • Homemade Buñelos are commonly served in Mexico and other Latin American countries with powdered sugar, a cinnamon and sugar topping, or hot sugar cane syrup (piloncillo) – Very delicious. 🙂
  • Tamales- 3 types of tamales.
    •  Uchepos are fresh corn tamales that’s from Michoacan Mexico- Where my family is from- It is a super easy to make. It’s a sweet fresh corn tamales.
    •  Popular tamale that is masa with chili and pork wrapped with yellow corn husk
    • Corundas are,wrapped in a long green corn plant leaf, and folded, making a triangular shape. In the middle of the tamales we put a spoonful of red chili.
  • Homemade tostadas- with beans, tomatoes, lettuces, cheese, salsa, and you can add any toppings.
  • Homemade Salsa.

According to the weather forecast- We’re going to have a White Christmas- Woot Woot!! 🙂 It’s been forever since we had one. i hope the forecast doesn’t change. xD I’m not sure if I already posted a picture of our Christmas tree. But here it goes.

Hi everyone name is Cecilia and, I'm 25 years old. I'm passionate about plants and gardening. At the age of 16, I was bitten by the gardening bugs, thanks to my grandma and my sweet, lovable mama. I plan to share my hopes, dreams, fears, and daily happenings in my life. When the days are beautiful. I enjoy going on road trips and especially go on hikes. I'm just recently graduate from college, and I was able to get my degree in Horticulture- Small Market Farming. Now I'm working on getting my IT innovation Degree at UNOmaha. My dream is to one day possess my own land out in the country, but near the city. Where I can be surrounded by peace and filled with inspiration with a little mix of technology. If you have any questions, feel free to email me :))
