Churros on the Plaza

My new job is bus driver for Uriel who just entered his first year of Secondary School.   We live in the country about a mile from the school and 'Uri' is disabled and can't walk that far on a very rough road.   School starts at 1pm and gets out at 7 so last night we did a little shopping and picked up a bag of churros from a stand on the plaza.

Churros are basically extruded donut dough, deep fried and then rolled in sugar and cinnamon (canela) and best eaten hot. I usually don't eat sweets but these hit the spot last night.




I'm getting re-acclimated to the warm weather after the Seattle trip and getting some painting done and more impermeabilizante on the roof. The garden has gone crazy with all the rain ... and the rain washes away my 'ant powder' I use to keep the leaf cutter ants at bay.   The lime trees are full of fruit, a few bats are back even tho I leave a light on under the palapa and there are new cantalopes growing on the compost pile.   Good to be back.

And good to have you back!

Love the churros - especially when the grease is fairly clean - those look like good ones in your photo ;-)

Thanks John ... and yes these tasted very 'clean'. Just have this thing about sweets and only seem to eat when others want to. Glad others want to!

The construction of the house finished in April 2011 and I'm pretty much settled in. As of March 2014 I'm in preparation for rain mode for this coming summer. That includes sealing and painting things and dealing with drainage issues from last year.
