birria for dinner
On our way to Tecoman yesterday to do some errands we passed this restaurant.
Last Saturday we went to an absolutely lovely dinner party at a beautiful home down in the colonia. Our host/ess have three gorgeous female champagne Standard Poodles who were very much in evidence. I remarked to the host that my understanding is that this breed were very smart dogs. "Well, yes," he muttered, "but not these three!" I was utterly enchanted by these creatures. Here are a couple of photos sent to me by their owner.
Something we always get in Tecoman are these potatoes. They're the closest we can get to Idahos, good for mashing, baking, making oven French Fries. They're called papas tierra or "earth potatoes." The only place I've ever seen them is in a big warehouse in the market section of Tecoman. They are very different from the usual spuds in the tianguis or supermarket, which are white and waxy-skinned.
That's about it for life at the beach. Weather is cool and overcast so no viewing of the alignment of the planets here. Dago's tonight. Tomorrow's opera is Turandot, one of my most favorite. I will be enjoying my shrimp salad while listening to Puccini's glorious tunes.
