Make Our Day!

Here you go, girls!
My friend Barb and I attended a very exciting event at our new Sendero Plaza Mall — a visit from Mexico’s premiere beefcake tv cooking show personality, the justly famous Chef Oropeza!
 He is renouned not only for delicious and highly accessible recipes but for his excellent physical condition.  He never fails to appear in custom uniform cut tight across the chest and high on the arms to expose his signature biceps.  Barb and I had to sharpen our elbows to keep our place in line, so many women and girls of all ages were clamoring for a personal autograph. 
Naturally, we made it! 
I hope you enjoy thse shots which show off the ebullient Oropeza along with our brand new mall, a breathtaking recent addition to our community which allows us to enjoy national events of this quality. 
 This pink poster was written out by the little girls asking the chef to cook with them!  They didn’t have the “official” postcard required for a signature (only 200 were distributed), so Barb and I carried the poster onto the stage where Oropeza graciously signed.  I never saw happier girls!

¡Hot Hot Hot!

Muchos saludos to all from Cabo, which is rapidly heating up for the summer just like these fiery little roasted serranos!  We still have a few weeks before the steady heat of the hurricane season sets in, but we get a day here and there that reminds us what we’re in for.

I’ve been remiss in my blogging… but I did manage to tile  my cement “plunge pool” which seemed like a good idea when we had a week or so of volcano heat a while back.  Here’s a shot to give you an idea how it came out… It’s an arroyo motif, with river rocks set in… cool to look at, cool to sit in!  Can you believe, since I got it done it’s been too cool to use?  That’s June and July in Cabo, what my friend Barb calls the “Secret Season”.  Oh yeah.

Arroyo Motif

But I digress…  There is plenty of food afoot hereabouts.  On my way to the laundry the other day there was a truckload of ripe mangos Read the rest of this entry »
