I like to get started early on my gifts from my kitchen and hostess gifts for the holiday season. This is my current list I am working on.
Simple and very hot!
I hve a few people in mind who will love the heat.
The Ancho Chile Powder. Roasted the dried chiles in a hot cast iron skillet, then cut them into small pieces and ground them into a powder in a coffee grinder I use for chiles.
Quick and simple.
Mixed with dried Mexican Oregano and Cumin you have Ancho Chile Powder.
Meet Peony Noir. I got her out of storage in the shed and dusted her off. Her and I are getting to know one another again. I bought her when we lived in the Sonoma wine country while our house here was being built. Great memories of riding along the well planned bike paths, out to General Vallejo's home, along the Sebastiani vineyards and around the historic downtown square . They are working on the bike paths in our community so Peony Noir and I should be making new memories soon. However, I have to admit I still am not sure how to use all the gears and I don't think I will ever get used to the brakes being on the handlebars. I instinctively use the pedals!
