Some people´s worst fear is dying penniless: the kids and grandkids have to pay for their own schooling and it´s all your fault. I don´t really understand this. There is always a convenience store to rob or an old lady´s oversized purse to grab. If you are creative, cash can always be found.
Why all the fuss about aioli? So-called experts say that any aioli not whipped together by hand is not worth eating. Humbug! A good machine-made aioli is better than pretty much anything you will find in a store and as good as or better than most of what you will find prepared by restaurants, cafés and the like. Aioli is unbeatable with vegetables, fish, meats, as a dip, on bread … wait, let´s just say that aioli isn´t that great with dessert, but otherwise good to go!
Since I’m only in Oklahoma for a small part of the year I’ve been forced to make good egg dishes at home, including this one: Juan Herrera’s Papas con Chorizo, a combination of eggs, homemade chorizo, onions, peppers, cheese and Fuego Fries (their wonderful seasoned ‘n fried potatoes). This amazing breakfast is served with warm, fresh corn tortillas and a salsa so good I have considered kidnapping Juan and (if I have to) pistol-whipping the recipe out of him.
