  1. An Ooey-Gooey version of Mary Berry's Banoffee Pie. Bananas courtesy of our garden. I used a chocolate cookie base in place of her digestive biscuit base. Mi esposo se gusta chocolate; bananas, meh.

    Hot smoked salmon. And very smoky with a complex rub, on the sweet side. Personally I can't stand the mouth-feel of cold smoked, ala lox.

    Take-away. Indias Vestidas. Never heard of it or seen it offered here before. Filling was cheese, corn kernels, jalapenos. Served with a chile morita dipping sauce. Description from Larousse Comida Mexicana, followed by Google Translation: Indias vestidas Diccionario enciclopédico de la Gastronomía Mexicana Preparación a base de un alimento relleno, generalmente flor de calabaza, capeado o empanizado, que se consume como antojito o entremés. Es un platillo de creación reciente que se puede encontrar en diversos restaurantes. En Hidalgo, por ejemplo, puede ser un triángul

    @heidih I hear you! I am usually in the category of, fish+cheese = no thanks. But at a restaurant we were served a pasta dish with smoked salmon and goat cheese...liked it so much I usurped much of the dish into the quesadilla recipe. When I get smoked salmon I buy enough for 2 meals; the q's shown above; and also a cold plate that I serve with a olives, pickled onions, chutney, apple or pear slices, deviled eggs, good bread, mustard, horseradish, etc.

    A local Canadian expat sells his own smoked salmon. It is quite luscious! This is my go-to use for it. Quesadillas with local goat cheese and caramalized onions, yellow pepper, poblanos. Not shown is the Big Squeeze of straight chipotle and handful of chopped cilantro. I grill them until the cheese gets very smoooshy. Mmmmm.
  7. There is a lot of sweet to it, which balanced the relish well. Made cheeseburgers for lunch today---I normally top mine with grilled jalapeno slices, but used this today and was happy with it.
  8. Found on the discount rack at our local "import" store. Half-price (from 105 pesos to 52.5p). I like it a lot---DH says it's too hot.

    I lucked out this week, times 2. The Guadalajara Costco now stocks Canadian duck breasts, specifically this brand https://canardsdulacbrome.com/ I also happened upon radicchio locally, an item I haven't seen in many many months. Not shown is the dipping sauce which was a sieved jar of McCormick's Mermelada de Frutos Rojos con Chile Morita (red berries with chilies).

    This is probably our last free avocado from a neighbor's overhanging tree. Huge (that's a full-size toaster)! My DH made a tuna ceviche which he plated over slices of this avocado. We used one-quarter of the avocado between us. I see a lot of guacamole in our future.

    Tuna ceviche on tostadas. The red pieces are picled red onion; the white cubes are seeded cucumber. I was most impressed with the tostadas themselves--most here are thick and tasteless. I found some "designer" tostadas, mixed flavors (chipotle, spinach, black bean) and seeds (sesame, flax, linseed). Nice and thin, smaller diameter (easier to eat, IMO).
  12. Quiet due to the bans on groups, bars and celebrations. But still deserving of a good meal. I am oh-so-late to the Instant Pot movement. This was my 2nd meal with it (don't ask about the first one 🙈). Made chamorro. My sauce rocked; it came out so shiny! No recipe, but started with a tiny jar of prepared mole', chicken broth, half a jar of French cherry preserves, small can of chipotle en adobo sauce, 4 garlic cloves, 1 huge red onion, 2 handfuls pitted prunes and a Belgium dark chocolate bar. Maybe other stuff, it was a 'clean out the fridge' sauce. Not a lot
  13. Watched it last night. AMZN Prime Video; 6 bucks plus tax. Filmed when she was 95; shows her driving around Michoacan in her stick-shift truck, going to markets, cooking up a storm and being generally feisty. Good footage at her off-the-grid house in Zitacuaro and some old video and pics from her early days in MX in the late 50s. Enjoyed it immensely!
  14. Found this link to what appears to be production company. Lists sites where available "soon." Maybe tomorrow, the date in WaPo article. Whether I can view/buy here in Mexico, vamos a ver. https://www.dianakennedymovie.com/
