I have been preoccupied recently and have not given you many new recipe posts or even a page from Irene’s home ec class, and for that I apologize. It is a truism that life is what happens when you are busy making plans.
We went out to dinner last night to a local Mexican joint. My family loves Mexican food! There is just something about the spices and flavors that is so satisfying. Certainly we enjoy other ethnic foods but Mexican tops the list every time. As we sat there in the restaurant, the Ranchero music was blasting, my daughter was wiggling/dancing in her chair, and we were laughing. Just then a group of people of undetermined Asian origin were seated at a near by table. It made me remember that the first quesadilla I ever had was made by the Japanese lady who lived down the street from us in the 70s.
I realized again that the universal truth of food is that when it is good, it will appeal to people from all walks of life, all ethnic origins, and all regional distinctions. Here’s hoping your kitchen is turning out dishes that bring satisfaction and nourishment to your family and friends, no matter where they come from or where they go. I hope to update the site again with regularity soon. Thanks for your patience!
