Ok friends, I am taking a week break from the "menu for the week" postings since I am having lots of family in town and staying on a budget is going to be almost impossible (see proof above...). There is going to be lots of baking, cooking and drinking with family, all Venezuelan style, Yey!!!!
Hopefully I won't get caught up in all the excitement and forget to document it all. If I do, expect some postings about it soon.
