Hey Brian, Sue,
and Chris!! Thanks for the thoughts of keeping me happy!! I think US butter has a big difference in taste, maybe its salted more? Anyway, in Chicago, heading back to Mexico in the am. And taking my butter with me. But I may be out when you come so I really like the idea of keeping me happy. It looks like we will have a good group at Christmas again this year, so see you then. Oh and Chris, yeah, still do the turkey thing for Thanksgiving. I guess you can't teach this old dog new tricks anymore... See yas.

have lived here in Mexico 10 years and have put on a Thanksgiving dinner, at no charge, for the past 6 years. At least 2 roasted turkeys, dressing, mashed potatoes and a bucket of gravy. Plus everyone who shows brings something to pass around (like really good brownies) and their own drinks. It is my way of saying Thank You to friends, residents and guests plus I get turkey sandwiches and left overs the next day!


Chris it sure is an invitation from Gene.

We have been there the last 3 years and expect to be back this year, and Peggy will bring her Brownies again.

Everyone is welcome to the Thanksgiving meal. A bit of notice is nice so I can be sure to have enough for all to enjoy.
And as always, I am looking forward to the brownies..Thanks John.

Try

MANTEQUILLA LALA in a tub

Used to come from Belgium. Last check it came from Uruguay.

Tastes exactly like US butter. All chain supermarkets carry it.

GREAT VALUE cube or block butter from SAMS, WAL-MART, BODEGA AURRERA from USA

I was doing a flip side of this thread in my mind yesterday when I saw some pitiful cracklins in the store.

What you can't find NOB...I mean the real thing:

Chicharróns...the real deal, coronary in a bag. First encountered while staying with Gene in Catemaco. Huge chunks that they would cut from to give you what you wanted.

Churros...served in the town plaza at night watching the locals stroll by. First encounter was when a pickup pulled into a Kino RV park with a vat of boiling oil splashing around (OSHA would not approve).

Great food from a truck or stand. I know these are in some places but not here.

Speaking of Kino: no one mentioned Padre Kino during the wine posts.

Works great to clean paintbrushes.

qtla - I'll second the La Cetto(a?). Very tasty and reasonably priced. We traveled with a French-Canadian couple from Escondido to PV and they turned us on to it.
