If it's Dakki, Chivas Regal would be more like it.

Acorn squash with walnuts? At work? Is that a Bic 7mm HB mechanical pencil?

Yeah no kidding!


As to the pics... the Acorn Squash was actually stuffed with Mushrooms, Chorizo & Pipian Rojo (Red Pumpkin Seed Mole) and it was one style of a group of dishes called Ayomole *


The last picture was in Uxmal... I thought I was running in the ball court... a few minutes later I realized it was just a palatial courtyard of the building now dubbed the Nunnery (there is no real rhyme or reason to this name).... the ball court turned out to be quite small & in bad shape.


Ayomole.. is the Nahua word for Pumpkin / Squash Mole common throughout the present day indigenous towns & villages of what was Mesoamerica... i.e., Guerrero, Oaxaca etc.,

The name is really loose.. sometimes it refers to a Baked Squash / Pumpkin filled with Pipian, or cubes of Squash / Pumpkin floating in the sauce, or "tortillas" made of Pumpkin / Squash flesh with Masa or Plantain flesh, sometimes it refers to a Mole that is thickend with Squash / Pumpkin flesh and chiles.

What a spectacular place to run. I had a feeling that place was Mayan, and shortly thereafter, another feeling that this must be a place of fascinating food.

Really looking forward to this, especially if we learn about different mole (whatever the plural is).

So excited to follow along with this one! Bring on the food! Mexico is one of those places that I'd like to go and just spend a month eating...

For some reason the little beastie on the pie crust looks like a turtle or tortoise to me! But I must be hallucinating because that can be right...right?

That's what I thought at first, too. Then again, a turtle is a pretty familiar First Peoples symbol, and I think that crust might be full of apples and maple syrup :wink:

Chris Hennes is right - our next blogger will be coming to us from Philadelphia - but the identity has not been mentioned. We should see an opening post tomorrow morning.
