regardless of how well a country is known for its food… nothing, and i mean nothing, tops something you make yourself that comes out of a hot oven. is it possible for the phrase “freshly baked __________” to ever end in something bad? don’t think so.
oh, and every sunday here at the foyer it’s family dinner, with a rotating theme. this week was my turn: tex-mex. well, faux tex-mex since i’ve never ever made tex-mex before… after all, why would I when i am surrounded by so many good restaurants?
and this is my tower of hand-made tortillas. but it wouldn’t have happened for all the helpers i had. large group of people cooking together for a big meal = something i treasure so, so, much. most people only get to do that for major holidays. but i get to do it every sunday with people from all over the world who i absolutely adore.
well, except for the 8 sundays in which i won’t be there thanks to the paid 8 weeks of vacation i have.
starting this week – toussaint! yay for toussaint vacation!
