Dear Readers,

This was my last posting, written in 2011. At this last writing, my life took a different turn, and I had no choice but to follow. Even though I have not added anything new to Cooking In Mexico, you will still find it to be a treasure-trove of authentic Mexican recipes written for today’s cook. In addition, there are a few non-Mexican recipes that were too good not to share with you. You will find all of my favorite Mexican dishes at the top of this page under “Recipes”. I hope you refer to them as often as I still do. Thank you for your readership and many comments. I still reply to every comment and question and look forward to hearing from you.

A Mexican street market is always fun, especially for someone who likes kitchen tools and gadgets. Mexican cooking does not require a lot of utensils, but whatever you need, you will find at the weekly market. Pick out a basic pot, wooden spoon, bean masher, lime squeezer, and you will be equipped to set up a food stand on the street or cook classic Mexican recipes at home.

Our part of Mexico has been having its share of rain lately. Bridges are washed out, roads are blocked by mudslides, motorists are stranded on the highways. I didn’t know if La Cruz de Huanacaxtle would have much of a market at all this Wednesday, but all the regulars turned out, except for the vegetable guys who took one look at the skies, and packed up and left. Between rains, I dashed to the market for photos and for a little education…

US WORLD’S LEADING DRUG DEALER

dawnspitfire:

Just a reminder….
I can’t change or control the government or people who still don’t get it (nor want to), but I can take that care with myself and my loved ones. #hopeandchange ?

okay…just one. Does any1 notice the irony???

http://abcnews.go.com/m/story?id=14868835

http://dawnspitfire.wordpress.com/2013/06/12/e-cigs-and-other-electronic-cigarettes/

The following information and facts regarding our government being the biggest drug dealers, contains only part of what races thru my mind when I speak out or post about electronic cigarettes.
LISTEN….I watched 2 “experts” on Fox News subtly putting them down. Saying reasons mainly bcuz they’re not “regulated” by gov. so we don’t know safety and that they still contain nicotine. PLEASE! The popularity of these are growing fast, making very large tobacco industry very unhappy. And an even larger drug dealing industry…our government, more unhappy.
They were WRONG with their information on e-cigs. They DO INDEED offer options in strength/milligrams of nicotine, INCLUDING ZERO.
And it certainly does NOT take an expert to know that a VAPOR containing nicotine is ABSOLUTELY SAFER THAN SMOKING TOBACCO PRODUCTS.

It Was A Murder Mystery Night

Leave a comment

dawnspitfire:

A humorous story. ..this blogger did remind me of the #DinnerTheater idea. My previous experience was sooo similar. BUT, she did inspire me & I thought “what options do I have near me? Not including the one I tried!”
So I looked it up and I believe I found one that “I think” I (& family) would like. I mean…can they mess up a cowboy BBQ?
So thank you :D

Murder Mystery Dinner

This was definitely a night I’ll never forget.

Let me start by saying, a friend and I decided to go to a murder mystery dinner since we had never been to one before.  I love trying things I’ve never experienced before so I was all for it.

The first thing that threw us off guard was the location of this place.  We didn’t really pay much attention to it until after we purchased the tickets.  The cross streets threw us off a little because neither of us could figure out what was in that location other than old buildings in the “rough” part of town.

Come to find out, we were right!  Omg.  I’ll never know how they can get people to come to this location in the first place other than the fact that these people don’t all know about this part of town—until they get there and it’s…
