Cracking Up No More
Today I am going to get the chili relleno casserole ready ahead of time, which involves grating about 7 lbs of cheese and mixing it with an egg batter and some chilis. It then bakes for awhile. This is a ton easier than the way my grandmother used to make it, stuffing cheese into the roasted and peeled chili, coating the chili in an egg batter which involved whipping the egg whites, then frying them in oil. She called them "mice" because the stem of the chili stuck out of the fried relleno like a mouse tail. My mother always thought this was disgusting, since she was not fond of mice. I remember the time my unsuspecting brother got down the box of Cheerios and poured himself a mouse for breakfast. There was much screaming and carrying on at the breakfast table.
Right now I am waiting for Abby to arrive for a weekend visit, and I am knitting on the blue sock and turning the heel. I think I am starting to get the knitting mojo back. But not quickly.
