Chile ristras and ladders, El Prado. Coming soon to everywhere in New Mexico. I hope you get out here to see them hanging from vigas and portals, accented against adobe walls. Quintessential New Mexico, for all the senses. Thanks for looking. G
Where I grew up chile was the country and chili is what one eats. I’ve since learned my lesson. But not until I did.
Lamy, New Mexico train depot luggage wagon with chile ristra. Things change and the Santa Fe Southern train station now serves coffee and home brews. The Chili Line Brewing Co. opened this weekend for business. The folks running it are delightful and if you are in the area stop in and visit the Lamy depot, step back in time and enjoy a hand crafted beer on tap. Even if you’re not catching the train to anywhere, it’s worth a visit. Things change and this feels like one for the better. Thanks for looking. G
Chiles, chiles, and more chiles coming soon and roasting somewhere near you. If you love fresh roasted chiles, peeling them and putting them up for fall and winter then you know what I’m talking about. We went through 90 lbs of chiles last winter. We are now out of chiles and can’t wait to see them roasting on almost every street corner. I exaggerate, of course, but I can smell them roasting somewhere from almost every street corner in town. Bring on the harvest. We’ll be doubling our stash this winter. Thanks for looking. G
