So here we are in an exciting food month. One of my favorite holidays is nearly upon us with Cinco de Mayo where we can all celebrate the cuisine of our neighbors to the South. Here is Seattle we have a tremendous spot called La Carta Oaxaca that specializes in the food indigenous to the region of Oaxaca (funny huh?) and that means mole! Yummy! I also really like the tacos de chorizo available at the taco truck near work called Taco Gol; crunchy bits of spicy pork sausage wrapped in warm tortillas...bliss.

Also the Spring farmer's market opens tomorrow and as I've previously posted it makes me nearly tinkle in anticipation of being able to buy fresh, locally produced, straight from the farmer foods. oooooooooooooooooo...

Tasting weekends in both Walla Walla and the Willamette valley are in store for wine tourists, Spring and Summer beers are hitting the shelves locally, jugs of sun tea on mine and many neighbors porches... Is it too good to last?

I'm tucking into a bowl of bulgur with walnut oil, cinnamon, coconut and pecans this am and feeling like Spring may actually be upon us here in the PNW with sunny skies, a brisk morning outside, the lawn freshly mowed by Henry last night, the birds chirping and the weekend upon us in just a few short hours. Oh mama, life is bueno yes?

Just few ramblings for the am.
