another week

Time is moving a lot faster than I realized... I only have 3 and a half months left already! I've got to get planning, there's a ton of more places I want to see and things I want to do before I return to the land of the U S of A. Por ejemplo, this upcoming weekend's trip to the beautiful Cajón del Maipo. We're planning on hiking, horseback riding, and staying in an adorable cabin for three days and two fun nights. I cannot wait!
Here's last night's dinner, Ensalada de fiesta. It actually had no name I decided to do the honors bc was so visually fun, lol. "Mom" shredded red bell pepper, cabbage, and carrots then mixed the veggie with tuna, olive oil, and cilantro and topped the pretty pile with an avocado and an hard-boiled egg. It was so wonderful, I made sure to take my time eating so that I could savor every thrilling bite. Speaking of, I've decided I'm going to stick to posting the exciting meals. The morning oatmeal or basic breakfast PBBJ is getting old ;). Lunch today was another fantastic meal. My host-mom and I are basically the only fish-lovers in the house so we baked another fillet of fresh salmon with a little olive oil, red wine vinegar, salt, and pepper and then served a generous portion along side a tomato, lettuce, and avocado salad. Delicious, salmon is the best and it kept me happy and satisfied all afternoon. As for now, my bed is calling and I must answer, gotta be well rested for the gym in the morning! I know I've got a bunch of recipes I owe you, and I promise to have them up as soon as possible, I'm sorry I've been so busy. Hope your week started off well, take care!
