Today we continued our quest for food that is smothered in cheese and green chile.
Did you know there is an official Green Chile Cheeseburger Trail?
We ate at one of the official locations, the Magdalena Cafe.

Amazingly, for as much as he likes to drink tea, we’ve never employed the set in . . . → Read More: a spot of tea with sugar and cream
These photos represent an evolution over time. Possibly about a week.
First, there was the day that Jonah decided all his Bob-the-Builder guys needed sunglasses. After they were properly adorned, a Thomas and Percy pair were also gifted with protective eyewear.
And then the Bob guys needed numbers, so that they would fit in with . . . → Read More: you only decorate the ones you love
