I enjoy most coffee drinks. My husband Gene usually makes me a cappuccino most mornings. But, there is something about a great cup of coffee when you can find one. Then every so often, especially in the summer, I crave those mocha frapiccinos at Starbucks. Coffee is one of those wonder drinks don't you think so?

Well. I currently don't do merienda, but it sure sounds fun. Of coarse I'd choose you to do it with! I wish I was closer and we could do it. Hey, would they let us do it in the big orange balloon?! Have a blessed day today.

I love rice! Especially the La Bomba rice from La Tienda! I think you turned me on to it! As far as Christmas goes, we usually go to our children's homes and so we have whatever they serve (Christmas Eve) usually breakfast and a soup at dinner. Christmas day I usually make Lasagna, however I have been known to make arroz con pollo which is my favorite rice dish...and of coarse it is your recipe! This is a fantastic give-a-way and I hope I win! Love you Marti!

So...We only eat Jiff in our household! I never ate Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwiches at school. And I really don't like the two together. (I hear the moans!) But I love Jiff Peanut Butter. I usually have it on toast or in a sandwich all by itself! And I have to have a diet coke along with it! My husband eats it right out of the jar with a spoon! (which I have been known to do!) But here is a cute story....when my little grandson comes over he immediately goes to the cupboard and opens the door. The then proceeds to find the Jiff peanut butter and struggle to bring it to me. (he's 1 1/2 so the big peanut butter (especially if it is new and full) is a little heavy for him to manage). He brings it to me and asks "pease" which means please. He wants his own spoon of peanut butter to eat! Before he could talk he would do this and when I took the jar he would do a sign language for "more" wanting some! It is one of the things I really look forward to when he comes over! I hope he never out grows it! Anyway...great post! I hope I win...but...win or loose, I will be eating Jiff Peanut Butter!

My sweet husband makes me a latte drink every morning using his Gaggia machine. When he's not here he leaves a press pot ready for me to add hot water to. Whenever I make it it never tastes the same. When he is here in the afternoon he makes Cuban coffee fore me with "killer espuma". Every now and then I try myself but it never tastes as great! So, I love it when my husband "taka taka's"! I would really love the cups!!!!

I think The Lion King is my favorite Disney Movie! When it originally came out I don't remember taking the kids to see it. I don't know why, except they were a little older. But this time we were very excited to take our grand daughter, CJ, to see it! I really appreciated that the theater had kid size glasses for her. (thank you Disney!) Even though we know the story, it was amazing to see it on the big screen! I truly wish they (general "they") would put more old movies out in the theater...but I guess that is not important right now...(hint Disney....please re-release your movies on the big screen!) We couldn't wait to pick CJ up from school last Friday and rush her off to the movies! We just made it for the showing and she was truly thrilled! (as were we!) We love the music and I especially...ahem....SCAR! I know, I'm always so DARK! I can't help it, Scar is my favorite! Of coarse, I don't let my 5 year old grand daughter know that. Anyway, I love the movie and LOVE that they put it out again. We shared a bucket of popcorn and had a magical afternoon! Thanks Disney for the opportunity to enjoy this beautiful, thank you Marti for sharing that they were re-releasing it! Do it again real soon! P.S. We really love talking in movie language! "What's going on here?" "You know her...she knows you...and she wants to EAT him....AND we're ok with that?" LOL P.P.S. We saw Nightmare Before Christmas a year or so ago in Downtown Disney. They and turned it into 3D. This movie was a big improvement over that one! The 3D didn't give me a headache and it seemed to be a natural feel. I forgot I was watching 3D! It looked beautiful and realistic as opposed to TNBC which was not as fun to watch. (just my 2 cents)

As you know, ORANGE is my favorite color! I'd make your Arroz con Pollo recipe. Or maybe my awesome Jumbalaya recipe or my spaghetti sauce! Whatever I choose it would taste wonderful!!! Did I mention you are beautiful?! I love you MORE!

I just love your Cuban coffee! Gene has gotten pretty good at doing the espuma I'm sure it isn't as killer as yours! In fact, I wish he was here to make me some! I love the red set....it matches my kitchen! Anyway...thanks for sharing your life with us all. We love your stories and amazing pictures! I love you MORE!

I agree with Luza! She is way better looking and I would never wear that hat! Gene says "never try and force the ring on. Just put as far as you can do then let the gal finish" (Pastors always know the secret wedding tips!)
