Far flung places

It has been a while since I did something REALLY out of my comfort zone, and even longer since I went on a trip that I just WANTED to do!  So last December when Groupon put out an offer for a Mexican Home Cooking School in Tlaxcala, Mexico I thought about it for about a week, consulted a couple of friends, and then signed myself up for the deal.

Well last Saturday night I returned to Oregon from my week-long adventure in Mexico.  I’m still searching for the right words to sum up my trip.  I learned a lot about hospitality, communication, and of course cooking!

In the next few weeks I plan to try various recipes from the trip and report back on my success or failures as I try to recreate the food of Central Mexico in my Pacific Northwest kitchen.   For today though I am starting out slow with Ensalada de Nopales, Frijoles Negros, and maybe some Salsa.

Yes I know you can buy them in a jar… but where is the fun in that?
