one of my favorite soups. this one wasn't my best work, but still good.
also, the young miguel that i mention in the post that this links to is currently battling a brain tumor. he is staying strong and doing well, but please send some love and good wishes into the world for him and his family.
i started it off right with some quick-n-easy posole. nothing like the real thing (and for me, the "real thing" is my friend nancy's - simply the best!) but still great. the key for me is tons of lime and warmed corn tortillas for dipping.
this cooking light recipe is very similar to what i made, though i cooked my own cuminy chicken, didn't add celery and used TJ's salsa verde instead of tomatillos.
my bff and i won tickets to see lady gaga a few weeks ago. it was super fun to see all the little monsters dressed up in gaga looks - they really went all out. meanwhile, we dressed as our normal old lady selves (i think we were the only gals wearing pants in the whole place) and said things like "GREAT, now I'm going to smell like smoke! UGH!". gaga ooo la la.
PS: she did sing my favorite song of hers - is it me or is it not the best summertime song? not sure why this one wasn't a hit.
