Holiday Delights

Happy holiday wishes from Linus

Mexican food is good. I’m challenging myself to make everything I crave and miss from the land of infinite variety and food availability. I think almost everything can be accomplished with somewhere between 4 and 12 times the time and effort, depending on the complexity and the level of authenticity desired. Tuesday I made an all day all-you-can-eat Mexican feast which included breakfast quesadillas with mexican rice and refried beans, plus tacos, corn chips and guacamole, and enchiladas. I think I finally finished digesting it this morning. Here are some of the other things I wanted to eat recently and subsequently made: chocolate cake with vanilla and chocolate frosting, potato pancakes and the sour cream and applesauce that go with them, 3 kinds of hot pockets (ham and cheese with caramelized onions, pizza, and shepherd’s pie), corn dogs, pad thai, and those fried wontons from Mick O’Shea’s stuffed with mashed potatoes and cheese (had to leave out the bacon–that’s only found in Yaoundé).

Despite my successes in elaborate recreations of delights from the developed world, there are a few cravings I can’t satisfy with any efforts in home cooking, among them are boxed macaroni and cheese, good pizza, and junior mints.

For Christmas Eve I bought a coconut from the market and made Coquito, eggnog made with coconut cream. It was tasty. I only used about 1/4 of the coconut though. What should I do with the rest of it?

    I bet that feast was ten billion times as delicious as any Mexican feast in Mexico (or a Mexican restaurant in Georgia).
