On the afternoon of May 1st, I went to my local convenience mart, bought a Dos Equis beer, and came home and drank it.  If it's good enough for "The Most Interesting Man in the World," I guess it's good enough for me!

On May 2nd, I made huevos rancheros for breakfast, which I totally enjoyed...  Later that day, I went back to the store, for 2 more beers.

May 3rd, I went to the store and bought 3 beers, to have with toastadas that I was going to make for lunch.  (HIC...)

Today, the 4th, I think I did out myself.  I put on some pork to slow cook, seasoned with chili powder, oregano and cumin, and let it go all day.  Before lunch, I went to the store and bough 4 beers, to drink during the afternoon, while dinner cooked... hey, it was HOT outside!  Come dinner time, I thickened the broth of the meat, finished my firth beer, fir stryed some bell pepper, and wermed up some beens... ya, beans... them fried kind!

Tomorrow, is Cinco de Mayo... not mayonnaise... oops...  Gonna have eggs or such fro lunch, with may (just won) beer, or eggs made with beer...  Gotta margaritaville resipes ready for after dinner... thinkin tacos... if I can shed the lettuce ok, and beef the cook...  Think I'll need a mixer for them drink things...  Got Jose stuff and ice... bit of juise.  Beet the carp out of it all and pour into sombrero.

Lela, couldn't have convinced Kenyon to pose better... could I? Glad you had a bit of a giggle, I know Cinco de Mayo isn't that big of a deal in many parts of the country... Be well, and keep smiling!

About Me
Started cooking many years ago, and learned as I went. First meal may have been "steak & chips" at age 15, in Birmingham England, where I lived for several years. Mostly grew up in MI, transplanted to the desert 30yrs ago, or so. Favorite cookbook is "Better Homes", also enjoy "Great British Cooking, a well kept secret." Hesitate to call myself "expert," but friends do rave...
My favorite things to cook
Italian has been my "specialty" for some time, and my "signature" meal is Lasagne, salad, garlic bread, which I first made 20yrs ago... from SCRATCH, very first time I made it. (Never again, folks...) Now start with a big jar of sauce!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanks to my heritage, I have enjoyed trying foods from different cultures. We still have beer battered fish, and chips of course; ground meat dishes often, chicken occasionally, pork too. I would love to submit a bean dip recipe, however, my ex who gave me the original has passed, and I have no way to verify that it didn't come from another source! I also enjoy British cooking (with a few yankee twists) and once made Plum puddings, also known as Christmas puddings, as far as I know... what an ordeal that was, but well worth the effort. Today, there is mail order!
My cooking triumphs
Greatest triumph was not too long ago, when I held a sit down dinner for 12, Lasagne being the entree. It was a fund raiser I chose to sponsor, and am proud to say that "we" raised over $1000 from that meal alone, minimum donation being $25. All proceeds collected were donated; my partner and I provided the meal and beverages.
My cooking tragedies
MEATLOAF of all things! Went through a stage of "winging" it each time, and I pulled one after another out of the oven that were almost unedible. As yet, not too big on baking... no sweet tooth here! Have dabbled, but find doughs/pastries especially difficult, perhaps as it's 90 degrees in my kitchen much of the year.
