Galletas de Avena y Nestlé Abuelita Cookies – Nestlé Abuelita Oatmeal Cookies


La merienda is a light snack eaten between lunch and dinner.  Merienda is a time to slow down, enjoy a cup of café or a steamy cup of chocolate with a light snack or piece of pan dulce.  The afternoon merienda is a traditional Latin American ritual meant to be shared with family, co-workers or friends who casually stop by to enjoy a time of rest, break from work or to unwind from the busy day.  This is one of my favorite times of the day I spend with my girls.  Together at the table sipping, nibbling while we share our day.

We stop to pause, reflect and enjoy our day. A steamy cup of Nestlé Abuelita chocolate, my girls and galletas de avena make la merienda a memorable time of the day.

Do you take part in la merienda?  Please share.
