Tonight, Renae sat on the counter "helping" me make fajitas for supper. After I sliced the green peppers, she reached over and picked one up. At first, I thought she was just wanting to see what it felt like, but when I saw her open her mouth, I was shocked. And for the next 15 minutes, this green pepper was Renae's pre-supper snack.
"What's not to like? Pepper? Goooood. Green? Goooood. Crunchy? Goood."
Last night my crazy neighbor Rosa taught me how to make paella (pronounced pie-ay-yuh) which is practically the national dish of Spain. She is such a great neighbor. She talks a mile a minute (yes-she talks more than me if you can imagine) so it's REALLY good Spanish practice when I speak with her.
Onions, artichokes, red peppers and green beans are the veggies.
Hmmmm, a nice hot pan of paella. Paella is like chili. Each person makes theirs a little different. It's usually made with some kind of fish. But I don't do fish. Kari and Trey, you can be expecting this in the menu sometime during your stay. It's that good.
When I came home from making the paella with Rosa, I found Jesse recording Renae and her newist "trick." She usually takes about a 2- 2.5 hour nap in the afternoon. Yesterday however, Renae slept for over 3 hours! Needless to say, we had one hyper girl last night who was not ready for bed at 9:00 as usual. So we had fun being entertained by the talented spit-master.
