El Jarocho in South Philly [food photos]

Wee recommended this place at 13th & Ellsworth after he saw my tweet / Facebook status update about eating at Taqueria Veracruzana. After hanging out today at the park, John, Helmut, & I decided to try it out. Franco & Luigi's Pastaria was the other choice, but Mexican won out over Italian. It was the right choice!

I baked pumpkin bread!

Pumpkin Bread (7)

I baked pumpkin bread today at around 11pm after Tom left to catch his train. I've had a box of Trader Joe's pumpkin bread mix (just add oil, water, and eggs) sitting around for a few weeks now. Instead of just using a pan, I used a bundt cake pan Cara picked up a few weeks ago. Since the recipe calls for a regular bread form, I had to watch it like a hawk to make sure nothing was over- or under-cooked (it took about 30 minutes instead of the 55-60 in the instructions).

I'm thinking about making a glaze, I have powdered sugar but no milk. Maybe if I melted some vanilla ice cream and slowly mixed extra sugar into that?
