LOLA'S TURKEY TACOS




Okay you got all the leftover bird, I know there's probably a million recipes out there telling you how to deal with this poor skeleton, this totally torn apart carcass, so here's one mo' to add to the list! This one is my favourite actually.




Finely shred leftover turkey meat, fry in a little oil with chopped onions, stir in black pepper, oregano, a little cumin and a little chili powder. Stirfry until nicely browned. Drain well. Heat corn or flour tortillas, put a couple spoons of the turkey mix on each, top with shredded cheddar cheese, diced tomatoes, Salsa Casera (drain salsa first), shredded lettuce and chopped fresh cilantro. Yum!!

I'M BACK!

Okay, them cards have been sitting there long enough. Time to be blogging. We've had some stuff going on the last few days. Of note was the Ebony and Ivory poetry reading held at Wendy's in Placencia on Saturday night the 22nd, featuring two powerful women - Angela Gegg and Adele Ramos. Wow!!! is all we could say. Made us who write poetry get all excited all over again, and the outcome? Well Lita Krohn of the PPAA said she would publish an anthology for us peninsula poets if we got the material together!!!!! And Barn of As The Coconuts Drop blogspot will take the photos for us for the anthology!!! We want to put a photo of each poet along with their work. Super cool!! There was an open mike after the Ebony & Ivory readings and we enjoyed a poem from Mariko Wallen and yours truly. Mine was called "Life On The Peninsula". The appetizer buffet put out by Wendy was fabulous, man they had some conch fritters there, whew I was ashamed to be going back for thirds but then I saw everybody was doing the same!! And for fourths too!! Anyway, here's some pics...




Paul from the PPAA, Adele Ramos and Angela Gegg














Nichelle of the PPAA who did a lovely job with the decor, and the gorgeous Theo - James Bond for 2028!!

THE MAKING OF HISTORY - BARACK OBAMA, U.S. PRESIDENT

Well we have lived through a historical day, Tuesday November 4th when Barack Obama became the 44th President of the USA, the first African-American to do so. We are living in interesting times (didn't I read somewhere that a curse goes something like that? "May you live in interesting times..." Is it Chinese? Jewish? I can't recall...) Anyhow, let's hope it all makes a difference. I found some photos of the man of the hour, I especially like the one with the ciggy hanging from his mouth...
