So last Saturday I decided to try out a new Stonewall Pesto Sauce that I bought a few weeks ago with some garlic bread. I was very surprised with how well it all came out!
So, I must admit that I’ve been eating out quite a bit lately. The place I’ve probably hit most often has been Café Saúl. Now this place has a lot going for it in a bunch of different ways but lately the freshness of the food has been outstanding. I mean, just look at this tomato and basil Crêpe:
So this has been a really fun week for food! While we are going through a bit of car trouble (if it’s not one thing, it’s another!) We have had the opportunity to get some really good eats going on.
Wow so that’s frustrating. I was almost done writing this post when it got erased. Yeah, not happy. So, I will now try to remember everything I had written.
My wife likes to eat out. I LOVE eating out. It’s better than going to the movies which, for me, is quite a statement. So when we finally sat down to figure out where all our money was going we came to the shocking (or maybe not so shocking) conclusion that we were spending an inordinate amount on food. That was when we decided to change our habits and stopped eating out as often and, even more important, as expensive.
Lake Atitlan is a beautiful lake in Solola. Here’s a picture for you to see what I’m talking about:

This has been an amazing year. It’s hard to say one thing that has stuck out from the rest. It’s had its ups and downs bit overall I’d say that it’s been very good.
Work has been great, the new house is very nice and my fiancée is a great girl. The best.
It’s on sleepless night like this one where your kind of start to think about how life is changing. In a couple months I will be cohabiting. No longer will my mess be mine alone to deal with!
The cold pre-dawn chill seeps through the walls and into my sheets. Not even the few hours of sleep shielded me from waking to the frosty sensation that envelopes me this early morning.
There’s something to be said for waking up with the cold. It wakes you up faster than a shot of espresso or a slap in the face. Suitcase, toothbrush, the sudden realization that I haven’t packed. We’re off to the lake today!
I know it was a little bit long for a preamble to such a short announcement but really, it’s just another of the great things that have been happening. I’m engaged to a wonderful and beautiful woman, we just got our mortgage approved for our future home and I got the dream job that I had applied for.
Coughing, sneezing and wheezing , these are the sounds of my office today. It seems that over the merry Christmas holidays, people have forgotten to bundle up and stay warm. So now, with air conditioning at half throttle, people everywhere are dealing with runny noses and watery eyes.
Today we went to monterrico to see hotels for the big wedding. Saw a couple of places, and everything was pretty good so we stopped for lunch.
