RIVER OF LIGHTS PART DEUX
MY WORLD IN 360: The RIVER OF LIGHTS at the Rio Grande Botanical Gardens.
It was an old fashioned simple evening. Traditional New Mexico Christmas' are a bit different then say in New Jersey or WisconsIn or even Montana. While most people have turkey or ham [that's a Thanksgiving dinner!!!] Here in New Mexico it is very common to make Pasole [a sort of chili stew with hominy] and tamales and enchiladas. Dessert would include 'sweet rice' and biscochitos [a shortbread cookie with anise and cinnamon...mmmmm my sister's are GREAT!]
Tonight at the RIVER OF LIGHTS there was plenty of local food fare. It was a bit chilly but a great evening over all.
...and to all a good night.
