La Merienda

Snack in English. Merenda in Italian. El algo in Colombian, which literally means "the something." Very appropriate I must say, since that is basically what you'll get around 4pm, something! And almost always what we all want are pandebonos. I have fond memories of my grandmother during the time of "the something," always upon finishing her rosary prayer she would ask, "what do you want for "el algo?" I don't really remember eating anything other than a pandebono! Now with children and not living in Colombia we eat other things. Almost always some nutella on something or some peanut butter on something. See, that word "something", is the way to go!!

Our version of crepes or pancakes, with nutella and jam. 
Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.
This might look like breakfast items, which they can be, but this is what we eat for "the something" here in this house. What do you have for snack, merienda or algo? Anything in particular that you ate as a kid, but don't any more or still do?

Wishing you a delicious "algo", I'm hoping it will be 4 o'clock soon!
