The panorama on the sunrise side: an awesome view of Malarayat

The quiet panorama on the sunrise side of the farm: an awesome view of Mount Malaráyat and the river below the gap.

I chanced on this good Mexican cookbook at National's Cut-Price Book Sale the other day called Antojitos: Festive and Flavorful Mexican Appetizers (for only P242!) and my cook, Marisú finally whipped up our own home-made guacamólê! Of course, it goes without saying that we made it from our own avocados; I wish I could say the náchos are from our own corn too!

The taste brings back many memories of trips to Mexico: backpacking in the Mayan south near Guatemála, a weekend in a charming B&B with my Mom in San Miguel de Allende, dining alfresco at the Zócalo in Mexico City, and many, many meals in Rosa's Cantina with my family in my sister's hometown of Temecula in Southern California.

I've got to plan a trip again soon!


  1. YUM! :) Is that a teak wood table? Beautiful wood grain!

  2. Plan a trip to Rosa's Cantina! We can go there everyday =D
    I'm sure your guacamole tastes better though!
