Spring break has ended on a cool note. Yesterday was pretty chilly, but hopefully today and tomorrow will be a bit nicer! Yesterday I took my oldest daughter to have a physical done so that we can send the paperwork on to her university. It has been a bit emotional this past week for me. I’ve put away the kids stuff into their bins and cried like a baby! All those little things that were used by them have so much meaning to me…It’s been hard knowing that so much time has passed when it just seems like yesterday that they were all babies. But I try to always be a positive thinker and feel that there are wonderful things in store for my children!
On a happier note…food! Family favorites! Everyone has their own personal favorite food and then there is a food that is an all around favorite with my kids. They all super love “Pata de Puerco con Frijoles y Papas” (Pig feet with beans and potatoes). I just want to clarify that I don’t actually use the pig foot in this recipe. I like to use chunks of delicious pork. My mom used to make this and it was one of my favorites and now I make it for my family. I don’t have an actual recipe. It’s more like a bit of this and a bit of that type deal.
I decided to make a scrapbook page that highlights some of my kids favorite things…
I really enjoy cooking for my family and can never say “no” when they ask me to cook their favorite food…I’m a sucker like that!
Horchata is awesome! ItIt’s not kind on the waist but tastes oh so good. This drink is especially good in the summer. I haven’t made it this year yet, but as soon as I do I will post the recipe.
My oldest daughter loves chili mac. I like making it cause it’s quick and easy!
I like using little pockets as embellishments and to place my journaling cards. It also give me a place to hide my ugly handwriting! Does your family have favorites? I would love to know what they are!
