Healing power of cooking...HOLY MOLE'


They say the art of cooking has restorative power to the soul...

We spent the weekend giving it a shot! AND since the landslide I'll say we needed it! Months ago M. bought an "authentic" Mexican cookbook because he was interested in the process of making mole'. I say "process" since you can find/read about how mole' in Mexico is often contributed to by the whole community. It isn't a quick thing to make from scratch! We spent hours toasting, roasting, stewing, blending, chopping, grinding...........and finally tasting the 18+ ingredient sauce!

Was is healing? at least gave us something constructive to spend our time on! So I guess YES--it was! It was quite delicious!
