Best of New Mexico


Hi everyone! It feels like I have been out of pocket for a while, but it has felt good to rest and relax from the computer. We finally returned home after a long trip in New Mexico visiting friends and sightseeing in the great Santa Fe area. The weather was fantastic most of our trip with amazing thunder and lightening storms to windy and gusty days.


It feels good to be back home and to see all my herbs growing like crazy. It has been reported to me that there has not been much sun here in MI so I guess the herbs have enjoyed a break. Here are a few pictures of our travels.


Hiking through the tent rocks.

It is only appropriate I be the first to comment on these terrific pictures and some of Noelle's blogging while a guest in our home this past week in New Mexico.
First, I must testify to all who read this how spoiled rotten Jason and I, as well as many of our friends, were by all of Noelle's gourmet cooking for us this past week! Whether it was her chicken flautas, raspberry cupcakes, crab rangoons (wontons), Asian stir fry, or simple roasted potatoes, we were fed like royalty. You would expect that from the pictures and recipes you see on her blog. What you DON'T see on the blog is how effortless Noelle makes the entire process seem while flitting about the kitchen. She doesn't show a bead of sweat, moves about gracefully (even in a stranger's kitchen) and smiles the entire time. After a week of observing, smelling, and tasting her efforts in the kitchen, I propose that a food blog is not enough. We need to think more globally, folks. Noelle needs her own Food Network show. Truly she does! :-)
I sign off with love for Noelle and Ryan, a grateful heart for our time together, and a tinge of sadness that the only smells that remain in the kitchen are reheated leftovers, the dishes seem lonely, there is less laughter in the kitchen, and I miss my friends very much.
<3,
Kayla

Yum yum! Beautiful pics of Santa Fe. I used to live in Albuquerque when I was younger. I didn't appreciate the beauty then as I would now. Thanks for sharing. And the food looks great! Thanks for the mention. Good luck! :)

Your photos fill me with nostalgia, New Mexico is one of my favorite US travel destinations. The food and scenery are equally amazing.
