I have a hard time *not* getting Chile rellenos when we go out. I’ve not mastered them at home, though. I could just order some from Hatch, use them as templates (read ‘stuff my face and damn the naysayers!’)

No convulsing, but I AM hungry now.
I mean, all you get is one trick, rational thinking. But when you're good and crazy, ooh ooh ooh, the sky's the limit!

I have to admit, Duncan, I did not make the rellenos, I have the same ordering habit that you do. Chris doesn't like Mexican food as a genre much, so I've found a drive-thru place near my work with amazing rellenos, beans and flour tortillas, and I end up going there waaaaay too often.

I gave the three households (Ian:Somerville, Adrian:Denver, us) tortilla presses last year, which are on the small side, but we did homemade tortillae(?) a few times. The best (still ugly) things we’ve made with the masa though are tamales - yummy, :)

Tonight was cupboard risotto: basmati rice, baby Bellas, spinach, sausage, and a bit of African spice from Penzeys, which has a shop just down the road.

I should have had a smoothie for lunch, but I finished off the last gf wrap with cheese & a different sort of sausage thing, and effectively slept through the coaching portion of today’s Serving Leader training. So.many.hours...

I have considered buying a tortilla press, but I prefer making flour tortillas and I’m not convinced a press would do what I want. Although I have seen videos of the wooden lever style presses, and they do seem to squish the flour tortillas just fine.

I just do basic tacos though.

Nel Gurgles family have a tradition of green jello. A grandma would always make green jello for gatherings and that jello has always been forgot, to languish in the fridge. I try to uphold the tradition by making a green jello thing that's edible.

No-one ate much of the jello.

Some traditions have ingrained inertia.
