T-minus 3 days to Christmas! Are you folx excited? Que le pidieron al niñito Jesús?
Over the weekend, my friend Alba hosted a posada which was a ton of fun! Prayers were shared, songs were sung, and there was plenty of good food to go around. Her mom really came thru with that pozole, ponche navideño, and buñuelos. Yum!
If you don’t know what a posada is, read up here. In short, it is a religious tradition in Mexico that takes place over 9 days leading up to Christmas, where you pray, sing Christmas carols and sometimes re-enact the nativity scene.
We’re making a Papaya Passion Fruit Rum Punch today because I found these cute little Hawaiian Papayas at a Chinese supermarket, and I wanted to make something that was going to get my mind off this nippy weather!
Chilly weather is cute and all until your nips get all chapped, and getting your cardio on becomes a nightmare.. Does that happen to anyone else?
No, just me? Oh, Okay.
If you’re currently experiencing anything below 50 degrees, I hope you make this and it makes you forget about the awful weather–also, invest in a few cobijas from the swapmeet. Just sayin’, they’ll keep you warm!
