Who wants a cake from the pan?

Waking up from a sleepover and having pancakes is my cup of tea!

So, the morning after mysleepover I had my "cup of tea".

I love having pancakes because when I think of them, I think about

happy families and ihop. I also think about a book I read with my dad

when I was little called Little Babaji. That morning I ended up making

them with my mom, while my friend watched. I have to admit,

I did steal a little of the batter on my finger, shhhh!

Once the steaming little blobs of Gee ( which means butter in Indian)

were on our plates we cut them. Then we, at a snails pace poured

on the syrup. The sugary syrup, mixed with the buttery taste

of the cakes was deeeevine, as my sleepover buddy's dad always says!

We also had three of my FAVORITE fruits, Kiwi, Persimmon and Blackberries. The Kiwi was squishy and tart! Persimmon tastes like the name sounds, cinnamon. When I eat blackberries I love to eithersquish them in my mouth or pick off one piece at a time. To top it all off, we had a glass of superorange-tasting Orange Juice.

Do You Know The Way To Santa Fe??

We arrived in Santa Fe in time for Noches de las luminarias and bonfires up
Canyon Road. It was very overwhelming because there were so many people
and it went by so quickly but I really liked.

One cold morning we woke up and decided to eat at our hotel, The Inn of the Anasazi.
My father had a Chefs Skillet that I didn't try because it looked just like my
Huevos Rancheros. My mom had a plate of Bacon, egg and Guacamole quesadillas,
they were very good and crunchy. I like both turkey bacon and regular pork bacon
so I'm easy with both.

After breakfast we went on a cool hike. We went to a national monument called
Tent Rocks. The rocks were cone shaped and formed crevices. After the fun hike,
filled with snow and slips we had a picnic. There was one type of sandwich,
ham and cheese with veggies. We cut the sandwich into quarters and shared it.
It was very good with just enough meat to give it a smokey taste, cheese and
veggies to balance it out. That day we also went to a Pueblo and saw some
traditional dances. It was a very good Christmas day.
Adios amigos!
