I’m going to be taking a few holiday breaks from blogging. Like, I just got back from my big Thanksgiving Break and soon I’ll be going on a Christmas Break. Just to let yous know.

While we’re on the subject, Happy (late) Thanksgiving! My holiday was nothing spactacular, but it was still fun! Unlike the rest of the country who had a week off of school, I had Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday off along with the weekend. Boy, have I been looking forward to that! It was lovely not having to get up and just being able to enjoy this nice weather and go to a park and not worry about if I’m going to get my homework done!

During the day, all everybody was doing was cooking and preparing for the feast that awaited us. Also, me and my brother decorated with hand and feet turkeys. I’m sure everyone’s seen a hand turkey, but feet ones are pretty weird looking.

For Thanksgiving dinner, we had three times as much stuffing as we thought would come out, potatoes my brother made all by himself, canned cranberry sauce, my mother’s coleslaw with an entire jar of mayonnaise (60 servings? More like 10!), my secret recipe candied sweet potatoes with a super-sweet sauce, and a big, fat scrumptious turkey that had spent the night brining so it would be nice and juicy and plump the next day.

Mmmmmmmmm!

Pepinos on a plate.

Whilst I was reading Esparanza Rising by Paul Munoz Ryan, earlier this morning, there was a part in the story where Esparanza and her family are on a train and they stop for some food. They all get Pepinos. What is a pepino? You may wonder. It’s delicious, that’s what it is.

Ingriedients:

1 Cucumber

Salt

Ground chiles or pepper

Directions:

Slice up cucumber into medium to large slices. Sprinkle salt and ground chiles or pepper onto the slices. Buen Provecho!


A picture of a Strawberry Lemon Cake is supposed to be here...

Succulent strawberries and creamy home-made icing atop a fluffy lemon cake.

It was my dad’s birthday last Wednesday, so me, my brother and my mom made him a cake. A strawberry lemon cake, to be precise. Now I will teach you how to make this elegant dessert.

Cake:

For the cake I just used a Betty Crocker mix of Lemon Cake and followed the box directions.

Home-Made Cream Cheese Icing:

You Need,

2 Packages of Philidephia Low Fat Cream Cheese

1 Stick of Butter (or 1/4 of a cup)

A medium to large bowl

A Stirring utensil such as a whisk

Directions, Put cream cheese and butter into the bowl and stir until well blended. Spread icing mixture onto the top of the cake. Place strawberries all over the place. Slice into pieces and serve. This cake is good hot or cold, I would prefer cold, though.

 


For dessert a few nights back, my family and I made these Rice Krispy Treats. Except instead of Rice Krispy’s we used Cheerios that had been laying around the kitchen forever because nobody likes plain Cheerios by themselves.

Cheerio Krispy Treats in the glass pan.

I’m not sure how good it looked, but it was pretty tasty.

 

Close up picture of the Cheerios

Here you can see all of the marshmellowy glaze on the Cheerios. It looks pretty good now, doesn’t it?

The only problem with this was that while everyone was eating, we tasted something weird. Soon, we had come to the concensus that this recipe would have tasted alot better, if the Cheerios hadn’t been stale. Eww.

In case you want to know how to make this dessert, it’s exactly the same as Rice Krispy Treats except when it says put Rice Krispies in, just put in Cheerios. Finally, keep in mind that Cheerios have waaay more vitamins than Rice Krispy Treats, too, for your children and such.


Last night for dinner I helped my dad make these barbeque chicken kabobs. We also had lentils over rice and cornbread with it, but I was too busy eating it to get a picture of it, :).

Chicken Kabobs are supposed to be here...

Nice and Tender!


I felt like being a photographer this morning so I photograhed my breakfast:

A steaming hot glass of Lipton tea

And some Froot Loops!


Tonight we had dinner. More specifically, we had tortillas.

First, put corn tortillas on the griddle

Second, flip corn tortillas

3) Cook corn tortillas to your liking and remove from the griddle

4) Place flour tortillas on the griddle

5) Flip flour tortillas

6) Cook and remove

7) Start cooking your choice of meat or tofu. I chose filet mignon.

8) Cook meat until it’s satisfactory

9) Add seasonings and other toppings like chives, salsa, red onions, etc.

10) Serve and enjoy!


The are some pictures of one of the best cakes I’ve ever had! Orange Creme Cake topped with Chocolate Frosting. MmMmMm!!!

 Tell me this doesn’t look delicious!
