August - 23 - 2016

One of my posts in this blog was all about cooking calabacitas for the California nieces, and it dawned on me that the easiest way for everyone, especially someone new to this cuisine, to prepare traditional New Mexican dishes is to own one of my favorite cookbooks – Simply Simpatico, from the Junior League of Albuquerque (find at http://www.jlabq.org/ – $19.95). My copy was given to me by my pal Patty Williams, back in 1988, and the pages are, quite appropriately, smeared with evidence of red chile sauce, avocado, batter from chile rellenos.  I’ve USED this cookbook.

Yesterday was a good day in Logan, and a good day at Ute Lake Premier Properties, LLC (www.utelakeproperties.com), the place where I hang my hat when I’m not being the paralegal for the Harris Law Firm or the jewelry salesperson in the booth at market for Pick Up Sticks Jewelry Company (www.pickupsticks.net).  I get to hang my hat there because I’m a partner, and while the pace might not be as demanding as the divorce mill that is the law firm, or the craziness that is the market booth for the jewelry divas, there’s always something to be done, or  [ Read More ]
