Activity books

Cielo has been working on Kumon activity books for a while. She's been coloring, tracing, cutting, pasting and doing mazes too. I really love the crisp and colorful design of Kumon books. I love that Cielo enjoys doing these activity books while developing her motor skills.

She loves them so much that she has completed most of her books. I'd been a bit worried because I couldn't find knew ones and I'm not sure she's ready to take on next level, I don't want to rush her.

So yesterday, after a visit to the Tilden Park steam trains we went to Rockridge for a coffee break and stopped at a bookstore where I found more activity books!

yay! So happy. Check them out, I totally recommend them. In addition to the Kumon activity books I picked up a Kawaii activity book for Cielo and my niece Alexa, so cute!

Recipe: Rajas con queso

Another one of my favorite, easy recipes is 'Rajas con queso.' the English translation is 'strips with cheese,' typically this is a vegetarian dish that I veganized.


6 Poblano peppers
1/2 Medium onion
1/2 Bag of Daiya cheese (mozzarella)
1 Packet of vegan seasoning
1/4 Cup water


Remove the stem and seeds from the poblano peppers after washing. Then cut into strips. Slice the onion into strips too.

In a medium pot, add 1 tbsp of oil then add the onions and the pepper. Stir the ingredients, then add salt and seasoning. I use culantro and achiote seasoning from the Goya brand, you can find it in the 'ethnic' aisle, a Mexican store or online. After I stir ingredients to make sure seasoning gets distributed throughout I add about 1/4 cup of water. Cover the pot and let it simmer while coming back to it to stir. Once the pepper strips look tender, add the mock cheese and stir immediately. Daiya cheese melts fast. Once your done with your dish you can serve with rice and beans or in tacos.

Buen provecho!

Tip: for spicy poblano peppers choose those that have a curled stem.
