It sure is good to be home.
Ken and I pulled in our house on Samron Rd. Yesterday afternoon and we both said we would take our time unloading the van and getting â€œback to normalâ€.
Well, apples donâ€™t fall far from the tree and I can report the van in unpacked, laundry is done andÂ I am in the kitchen cooking! It did not take long to fall right back into our normal.
Sarah down in Nambe, gave me a stack of recipes to practice in the next 6 months to make myself ready to cook at the Rancho Nambe B&B. (have you booked your visit yet?)
Tex-Mex Quiche. I would name it Green Chile Beginnings as it has a nice bite to it that will get your attention. Iâ€™m so glad we brought home a lot of jars of New Mexico green.
Sarah said she gave me the easier recipes to learn. I hope she meant it.
This is a note I really must take seriously as once I put the quiche in the oven, I went back through it and see Iâ€™ve only forgotten one ingredient! Not so bad. I am use to practice and I actually think this first one will work out just fine anyway. (Do quiches need eggs?)
Ha-ha! Just kidding! I forgot one type of cheese. Iâ€™ll fix it next time. Practice, practice, practice!
Also, for some reason, (maybe it was the lack of cheese), but it took a lot longer to cook than the directions said.
Still, Iâ€™m excited to be on a learning mission. I look forward to honing some cooking chops!
In the mean time – Letâ€™s eat!
