Sharing my day with you

I am just so excited today, it's been a great day so far!

I took my 16mo. baby to the pediatrician (for her regular check-up) and she is doing great, height: 97 percentile! I am just so happy and proud for every milestone she's reached! there is nothing better for a mom than knowing her kids are healthy and happy! right now she is taking a nap... and I can't believe she is the same baby I brought home 16 months ago! it's been so fast, so wonderful!

Anyway... I wanted to share with all of you the following picture:

This picture was taken in Mexico when DH and I were dating (he had to go all the way down to Mexico (from Wisconsin) to visit me! that's another long story I will share here one day or even create another blog for it! It is an amazing story! ... That is an OLD (still working) Mud Oven (which by the way, was still very hot when we took the picture), you can make the best bread there, it's very common to see those in a small town where my grandfather (dad's side) was born -in the North of Mexico- and his mom used to bake bread in one of those! I just love being able to see those things and I wish I had one oven like that to bake my bread... I am sure it must give a wonderful, unique flavor to anything you bake! I wanted to share it because I wrote some days ago that I want to learn how to bake the different types of bread my dad bakes... and I haven't forgotten about it.... so just bear with me.


Something else I wanted to share is that another blogger tried my recipe Mexican chocoflan cake and she loved it! I appreciate her comments in my e-mail... here is what she wrote:

"This is one of the best cakes ever!!!!! It is soooo creamy it's like two desserts in one. I made everything homemade and as you can see I got more flan than cake LOL!! But I really love flan. We even top it with fresh whipped cream it was so divine!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

Thanks for your comments Cynthia!

I think your name is so pretty. Paloma. I love that! And I LOVE coffee so I am going to definitely have to come to visit you again :). I remember those Dr. Visits. It is so fun to watch them grow isn't it? I am happy for you and your sweet baby! LOVE the picture from your dating years. How fun!

The restaurant in our building at work has an oven that looks sort of like that. They use it for making pizza.

That's great to get feedback like that from someone liking your recipe that you shared. I feel the same way when I get feedback from someone whose read my book and liked it.

Visiting from SITS.
