Mexican Flan...and Friends



On Sunday, we invited some of our friends from the church here in Salamanca, Tino and Yanet and their adorable very blonde little boy, "Faustinito" over for Sunday dinner. I served them roast beef, potatoes, and carrots, green beans, rolls.....the typical "Sunday dinner". I wasn't sure what they'd think but they loved it. I didn't take pics of what I cooked, but I had to take some of the dessert that Yanet brought to share with us - Mexican flan.


So beautifully done and "garnished", and it tasted delicious. I will say, I have had flan in the past that I didn't care for. This was different - very rich and creamy with a delicious caramel sauce over it. Yum!

We had fun eating and visiting with our friends. They are so very kind to us, patient with our Spanish, and most of all, they both really love the Lord and their lives exhibit that love. When I was gone recently from Salamanca, Yanet helped me so much by teaching my Sunday School class for me and did a great job. The Lord is helping them grow in grace, and we are really thankful to have them as our friends.

What a cutie!





Dessert, anyone?

Looks like she should send in her recipe to be published in Taste of Home. Is it a custard consistancy? Adorable little boy! I'm sure he thinks your boys are great.

The flan looks beautiful and yummy too! That is neat you could have those friends over for a nice visit! Their little boy is a cutie, isn't he?

We pray for our Kimberly's S.S.class, yours, and Kim M. from Bedford's class each Sunday on the way to our church service. We trust that God is helping you.

Love, Heather =)

The flan looks yummy! Glad you were able to share your Sunday dinner with friends. I'm sure the little guy felt right at home with you guys. Blondes down there are probably few and far between, or are they? Anyway, he's adorable!
