Happy New Year


Here's wishing you all (or y'all if your from these parts) a wonderful, happy and safe New Year. I want to take the time to thank all of you, my bloggy buds for leaving wonderful, heartfelt, loving and just too funny comments throughout my year of rants and art, or art and rants!! That comment reminds me of the time I asked my now deceased, wonderful Pop, when I was about 7 years old, if he suffered during the Great Depression. He said there was always food on the table, for breakfast, they would have beans and tortillas, for lunch, beans and tortillas, so I figured he had the same thing for dinner, but he said absolutley not, for dinner, they'd have tortillas and beans!!!! Para-pum!! Ok, you saw that one coming, but I was 7 for heaven's sake!!

So, I shall post my last blog here for this year and will return next year with more art and rants and even throw in a recipe or two....how about my recipe for Menudo??? I can just imagine what a particular gentleman in CT is doing just about now!!! Tristan, are you there???? LOL Off I go into the confines of my kitchen to cut the "panza" (stomach) sounds so much nicer in Spanish, and take out as much fat as possible, clean it thoroughly and throw into the my big stew pots with the pozole (hominy), ox tail, green onions and later, add the red chile sauce. Will cut up the limes, green onions, open up a brand new package of Mexican oregano and red chile seeds, heat up the bolillos (small French style rolls) and serve up a nice steaming bowl of menudo to warm the belly and heart. I'll have friends and family stopping by tomorrow, Tupperware in hands, for a bowl of my soup and leave here with great satisfaction and full container of my tasty treat.

HAPPY NEW YEAR, MY FRIENDS. Peace out.

And I am in the throes of gumbo making, which is as much work as the Menudo I believe.

Hey girl. Mis Anos Nuevos. I never did figure out that one. Anyway, maybe your Pop got inside my head cuz we're having tortillas and beans and tamales and green chile and buttermilk cake. What?
It's like one of these things is not like the other...one of these things just doesn't belong. (sesame street)
And tomorrow black eyed peas and fat back and cornbread and lemon ice box pie.
Ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww that wouldn't sound better even in Spanglish, which is what we speak up north ya'll.
I love you so much muchacha. The best of everything you wish for in the New Year. Otra Vieja Loca
