This Mama Cooks! goes on vacation

Drvthru2I'll be away for the holidays and hope to have lots of great stories of sushi in San Diego, character breakfast buffets at Disneyland, Christmas dinners at my mom's house, late night rolled tacos with guacamole noshes, and the occasional stop at In-N-Out Burgers, too.

Please visit the other cooking blogs on my Food Blogs list if you need a foodie break or some fresh cooking ideas. There are some wonderful food sites out there that need our support and readership.

I hope you have a wonderful holiday season. Celebrate and eat well. (I'm going to make those calories count! Then it's back to Weight Watchers next year for me, I'm afraid.)

    I have to admit I also love the new Anthony Bourdain Les Halles book. I haven’t cooked from it yet but I still loved reading every word in it. I love his writing. He is brash, yes, and has a foul mouth, but I love everything anwyay. I guess because I was brought up in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn, NY and had a mouth just like his for years. Now i don’t though – I have a 9 year old son who hasn’t cursed yet. I hope not. I make up fun words instead of saying the dirty words. Works well. Anyway, I can’t wait to cook from it. I also bought Barefoot in Paris by Ina Garten. Two books on French food – and I usually hate french food. I have no other books on French food, not even dear Julia! I have over 400 cookbooks and have never had interest in French cooking. All of a sudden, at 44, I decide I want to cook French food. I’ll send on my review of the dishes when I make something from it. I did cook from Ina’s book – 2 recipes – and both were great. Easy to do too. I guess most people feel French food is difficult to cook, or too slow to make, but both dishes were delicious and not difficult to do at all.

    Anyway, enjoy the book. I loved reading it. Can’t wait to cook from it.

    Hey, sorry we missed you at the Empress’ palace here in Upland. Not to worry — 2/3 of our household was down with the flu, so we couldn’t have made it anyway.

    Hope you had a great holiday. I have a Christmas gift for you, which I’ll probably send to you instead.

    Happy New Year.
