Scenes from a Feast

In lieu of a regular blog post, please enjoy Part I of a photo essay from today’s potluck with the elders at the South Valley Multipurpose Center. Look for Part II tomorrow.

Waiting for a pot of oil, a dash of flour, and some chile colorado.

Prelude to masa.

Frijoles hechos con amor (and salt pork).

Tortillas--before.

Tortillas--waiting.

All it needs is a rolling pin and a pair of capable hands.

Enter Louella. Today she taught me how to roll a round tortilla.

  1. A long time ago my neighbor told me she’s never been able to roll a round pie crust while I’d never made a round tortilla. She figures it’s a genetic thing…. 🙂 Great looking food!
