A group of us got together for dinner and had this for dessert:
It was tasty Jello, especially the white part, and very firm (maybe that's the Mexican style?) The cross says "Dios es amor" (God is love). We gave the praying hands to the priest among us-- consecrated hands and all. :) This cross supposedly serves 25 people, but six of us nearly polished off the whole thing in one sitting.
It occurred to me as I was preparing to post this that I actually do a lot of photographing and then eating Catholic desserts. You wouldn't expect that would fill out its own category, but I think I have enough of them to make a blog tag! Heck, maybe that can be my blog theme, since I clearly don't have one. "Catholic Desserts." See how neatly it combines two great loves of mine? :)
Nah, I'll stick with Infused Knowledge. Story time! I got this from Reader's Digest, I think. A white family wrote in to say they were raising their kids in the San Diego area and teaching them the proper Spanish pronunciations of the various place names. La Jolla isn't "la JOLLa", it's "la HOYa", and so on. One day in a restaurant one of the younger kids was looking at a menu and asked, "Mom, what's hey-o?" Turned out that for the first time in his life, he was seeing the word Jello.
Turnabout is fair play: I heard of some Mexican-American kids who asked their parents what the English word for "ice cream" is. :)
