Pastel Azteca

Precious tagged me to talk about my favourite books. I have to say that I don't read too much, but my mom has read some. She likes to read about Frida Kahlo and novels. I can't show pictures of them because we don't have them. My mom buys the books, reads them and always lend them to someone else and she never gets them back! She likes to watch Food Network and has gotten some cooking books and those are the ones she keeps. By the way, yesterday she made Pastel Azteca - Aztec Cake -. It is made with tortillas, chicken, avocado, lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, sour cream and hot sauce, and let me tell you that is delicious!!

Ok, back to the books, the only one I have is "50 uses for your dog", its very funny and I like to see all the pictures!

I hope you had a great weekend!

Those cooking books sure look good, and so does the Aztec Cake!! Yum!!

If you e-mail me your address (see my blog for my e-mail address) I will mail you a copy of the Marley and Me book!! Your human will really like it, but she has to promise not to lend it to anyone else! :-)

What a funny idea for a book! Maybe your mom could use you to paint too. Your tail might make a good paint brush and then maybe the two of you could be as famous as Frida Kahlo. She was a fascinating artist!

We want the recipe for that food. Oh and my mom has that lady & sons cookbook. She says for your mom to make farmer's porkchops if she hasn't because those are my family's favorite out of there. She says be warned it's full of fat though just like most of the stuff paula makes.

Bailey said...

I can't believe it! Paula Deen's book?? She just loves "butta" - we love it too! Our boy here calls her "Yalla Deen" because she says "Ya'll" all the time. Be good!


Sasha said...

Ooh, I would eat those cookbooks!

Clover said...

Hi Lorenza!
I've just been sitting here staring at the delicous food on your blog. I definitely think you need to give that recipe to the dog mommies and daddies that are reading here - so they can make it for us doggies!!
Love Clover xo

José Tan said...

Reina said...

My mum watched Frida and she loves it!
Wow, thats alot of cookbooks! YOur mum reading cookbook is a good sign, coz that just means alot of good food!


Deefor said...

I had a dream about all the food on your blog. There's not much cooking around here. I'm lucky if I get a mix-in-- a tiny bit of hamburger or egg with my dry food.


Ferndoggle said...

Oh My DoG! Mom is drooling all over us looking at that Aztec Cake!! She loves that kind of food.

Now we're hungry.

Hi Lorenza,
Mommy was so excited to see that your mum liked Paula Deen.She always says that Paula seems like a sweet person !!They went to Savannah(where daddy was born) to eat at her restaurant but they had to wait in line for over 2 hours so they gave up!!
