Sunday afternoon.  63°F and cloudy with a chance of a shower.  I’m not entirely sure that means the same thing here that it does in other parts of the country.  Here it means that it will look like it could rain…someday.  It does rain in So Cal…just not very often.

Today was a good day.  A lot of fun getting the Red Chili Sauce ready for tomorrow night’s dinner: Chicken Chile Rellenos from A Cowboy in the Kitchen: Recipes from Reata and Texas West of the Pecos.  Let me tell you, this cookbook is the real deal.   Some of you have noticed from my About page that I love a good salsa.  That’s really just part of the picture.  I love the kind of food that includes a salsa and the Chicken Chile Rellenos served on a bed of the Cow Camp Creamed Corn is so good!  Wish you were here…tomorrow night!
