4 of us went out for breakfast this morning…..
Yoli had told me of a place where they cook goat and lamb… I believe that they prepare the meat by marinading it and putting it in a pit with hot coals. It's then covered with Banana leaves and let cook for about 15 hours….
In the corner of the building (Which looked like a big open garage) the family were making tortillas….. A small girl was standing on the bench, putting her small hand into the dough and scooping out just the right amount, she balanced them neatly around the rim of the huge dish…. Her Mother, took one, and placed it between a thin sheet of plastic on a wooden block and the handle bought down the matching wooden block onto the tortilla dough and it flattened to the right degree…. with dexterity, she flipped the dough onto a hot plate and another lady would tend it from there….
Hot tortilla's were served to the table, you put the hot goat meat, onion, corriander and chili in the the tortilla, wrap it up and munch…… wonderful…. what a flavor…
AND this is for breakfast washed down with orange juice, soup and….. I had to have pepsi because I can't drink orange……
The table cloths were bright green floral oilcloth, the chairs were bright blue, the big bowls of dough were bright yellow…. and the colors added to the ambiance of the event…..
We discussed an exciting project for next year…. and then I returned back to the Casa to do more filming… and get ready for the shindig with the Quilters of San Miguel de Allende late this afternoon….
