Reading blogs from other Merida bloggers is more than just entertaining...it is educational as well. Tonight we tried two lessons from two of the Merida bloggers that we read regularly. So, with thanks and apologies for the photo quality, here are the results:
posted about using Google Maps to compare lot sizes of multiple properties. Admittedly, Lee's results were far more attractive, but this is our low-tech attempt. (We only managed to print, cut out the lots, and paste them to a folder!) Each of these is a place that we either (1) looked at with LeAnn, (2) visited on a Wednesday MELL tour, (3) visited socially, or (4) rented for one of our Merida visits. Our lot is the third from the left. Although it is not as big as the two largest, it compares favorably to each of the places that we've rented in the past (the four furthest to the right), and each of those was very comfortable. This exercise really helped us to get some perspective on the lot that we picked, so thanks, Lee!
Then, Pat Q posted about flan. I've been trying to learn to cook something other than the dozen or so dishes I've been making for years, so this seemed like a perfect opportunity to try something I had never done.
