We haven't done a whole lot the last couple of days. Just to the market. Noticed these in the bakery department.
And to have the Jeep washed. I talk about Mexican coffee a lot, some asked me about it so here is the description and a recipe on how to make it.
Mexican spiced coffee, better known as Cafe de Olla, is made with Mexican ground coffee, cinnamon and raw dark sugar that is called Piloncillo." A traditional Mexican drink recipe that has been enjoyed by generations.
4 cups water
3 oz PiloncilloPanela or dark brown sugar about 1/2 cup
1/2 stick cinnamon
|The piloncillo is on the left - cinnamon on the right. All available in most grocery stores here.|
4 tablespoons ground Mexican coffee, better if using dark Mexican coffee.
In medium saucepan, place the water, cinnamon and piloncillo (or brown sugar). Turn heat and simmer until the piloncillo is dissolved. About 7 minutes.
When water starts boiling add the coffee, turn the heat off and stir.
Cover pot and let steep for five minutes. Pour through a strainer, cheesecloth, to serve.
Also you will need an olla - a ceramic clay pot traditionally used to cook soups and stews. If you don't have one, you can use a saucepan.
Usually on weekends we don't go out much as the town is full of tourists and traffic. During the week we are a little more active.
There are now 10 RVs here in the park, more are expected.
