I have to keep this post short because I am going to prepare a feast (Adam, don't read the rest of this post, please.) I also have to clean the house, which surprise, hasn't happened yet. (He arrives in a short five hours, and we have a parent teacher conference at 9:30a.m. today. No pressure, no pressure.)
One of my other life joys is cooking: I tend to be creative in the kitchen because I have been cooking since I was eight, and in my household, having parties and cooking for 40 was the order of the day. My only training has been watching my mom in the kitchen, for years; then cooking on my own when I left for college; and a home economics class in Jr. High (where I learned how to make pancakes and other goodies).
Here is what is on the menu (remember that Adam is vegan, NOT vegetarian. he just messaged me. thank goodness.):
- Jesusa's (a delicious vegetable egg patty with carrots and red sauce. They are so good, I named them after myself.)
- Potato patties
- Cheese egg souffle for us
- Reconstituted chiles rellenos in a garlic caldo, sin queso
- Vegetable chalupas
- Mexican Rice
- Water and/or coffee
Well, I'm off to scrub and clean. My adorable husband is passed out; this fall back situation is not helping, but it is Sunday. Plus, he works so very hard watching the kids, that he should sleep in every now and then. I just wish it weren't today!
Here's to great meals with friends and a little creative Mexican fusion in the kitchen (and bedroom. ha ha ha, with my husband, of course. see results below.)
