pix from the party ~ sort of

I already said I did not take my camera to last night's birthday party for Mac. But I do have a couple of pictures to share. First, Mac brought me one of these jalapeño roasters. These delicious little hors d'oeuvres are frequently served at parties here. They are absolutely delicious; juicy, picante, usually filled with cheese and sausage or ground meat. Even fish. I asked Mac how he made them and he said he'd get me one of the sets. So when he was up in Oklahoma a couple of weeks ago he bought this set and presented it to me as a late b'day gift.

When I go to the tianguis on Monday I'm going to look for some big peppers and give this contraption and recipe a try.

One of the goodies I bought in San Miguel was this wonderful bag, perfect for taking to a smart evening soirée.

Just in case you can't tell what the decoration is, it's the Virgin of Guadalupe encircled by little roses with lots of sequins.

Let me tell you, it was quite a hit! Now I have to decide if she will "fit" into my USA life or if she's best left here to be part of this, my other life.

When in doubt give the sequin encrusted, rose encircled VG bag to your daughter! Fantastic find Mom!
I highly suggest you take it home so the sequins don"t corrode---it will "keep" better in Davis. Well done supper non-shopper!

Love both the appetizer contraption and the sparkle purse. All virgins everywhere will celebrate when you carry that!
