Our garden in Salem, Oregon..(#1)

Brenda has done a wonderful job on this…  we’ve had chard enchiladas a couple of times (enchiladas de acelgas) and the beets are great.. We’ve made pesto and need to make more.. putting in some thai basil tonight.

SALSA HUICHOL

My salsa de jour:
I don’t want to buy a new jug of SRIRACHA until Oregon. This’ll do fine and it’s small and inexpensive. This is migas con chorizo (from BONITO MICHOACAN/Olathe).

Made it to Oregon..

Well, I hope to be out of the KC area by the middle of May. Thence to Salem, Oregon. I’ll not miss Brownbackistan one whit. I will have a place to garden and to have a smoker again. No more apartment cooking. Yahoo!

torito

The carniceria closest to us in Salem. El Torito.

Will be glad to be there..  real strawberries.. not those cardboard ones from Las Califas.  Serious wineries, more craft brewing. Hell, I may get me a cajun cooker, too. Quien sabe?
