Velvet Was the Night | Silvia Moreno-Garcia
post image

Reading (Velvet on audio).
I read somewhere that Moreno-Garcia‘s books all have a different vibe. I love that in an author when well done (eg Matt Ruff). I don‘t know what to think yet, & I‘m 75% done w the book. It‘s not…. Velvety, as promised? But I wonder if that‘s because of the narrator? She‘s… not velvety. 🤷🏽‍♀️ Anyone?

Also reading Stroud after having enjoyed his Niceville series🤓

& sent the #LMPBC book to @carlthecattt today! #groupw

ChaoticMissAdventures Velvet is on my list for this month, she is very hit or miss for me. I did really like Mexican Gothic which is pretty polarizing, and Certain Dark Things was certainly dark (I liked it fine) 2h
Avanders @ChaoticMissAdventures I also really liked Mexican Gothic! And I‘m here for Certain Dark Things… and this is good. It‘s just… not quite what I was expecting. Though I‘m not sure what that was 🤔😜 now

If this picture is familiar to you, it is because I'm reusing it. Since I don't have the time to write about every single product I buy for the #FoodandLit challenge anymore, I'll just do an overview at the end of the month. #Mexico is not only about spices and chili, as I was about to find out. There is so much to discover ❤

@Texreader @Butterfinger

Pulparindo: Interesting mix of flavours. Sweet and sour and fruity at the same time. If you ⬇

Jari-chan like this combination, go for it!

De La Rosa: It‘s marzipan, but tastes and feels different from the one I know. Tiny, sweet, delicate. If I order at this shop again, this one will be bought again.

Ate de Guayaba: Paste made from Guava. Reminds me of jello, at least its texture does. I really like it and surprisingly you can combine it with many different kinds of food. I‘ve had it just alone, with bread, yogurt, vegetables, meat… ⬇

Jari-chan It always gave the dish a special twist. Sadly, the box is way to big for one single person…

Rancheritos: Nice to try, but to me nothing that special. They are a bit more intense in flavour than the nachos we get here, that‘s it. Also - the bag is a scam.

Tostadas: I used them for everything. Even in a Tiramisu. Works. So if you‘re tired of always using normal wraps, try these instead.

Flor de Calabaza: Pumpkin flower. No recommendation, if ⬇
12h
Jari-chan you ask me. Buy them fresh. Coming from the can, they‘re pretty much tasteless.

Mole: Just had to try it. And it wasn‘t bad. But I guess I‘d rather go for a home one next time. But I enjoyed it this time. I had my fun dipping all my vegetables, sausages and whatever into it. Also makes an interesting salad dressing.

Cuitlacoche: Mold growing on corn. Yes, mold. Yes, that‘s something of the most peculiar things I‘ve ever ate. Yes, I love ⬇

Jari-chan trying new things. So yes, I tried it. It doesn‘t taste very good on its own, but mixed into dishes it‘ll get interesting. I still wouldn‘t call it tasty, but for me it was worth the try. Now I can say that I ate mold 😄

I once again loved all the new experiences. For December I couldn‘t find a shop, but since I‘m more into Christmas food anyway, I‘m fine with that. I‘ve already found some recipes to try, so I‘ll go with those 😊

I didn‘t quite get around to making tamales this month (though I have the stuff so might this month) but I did make some tortilla chips with the remainder of the corn tortillas we made (I swear aren‘t as burnt as they look as they were made with blue corn flour!) with a delicious pico de gallo salsa ☺️

Gods of Jade and Shadow | Silvia Moreno-Garcia

4/5 ⭐️ I enjoyed this book so much more than Mexican Gothic! Based on Mexican folklore featuring the gods of death. Loved the magic and adventure! If there were no animal sacrifices then this would have been a five star read.

This was my bookspin book for November.

Lucky Boy | Shanthi Sekaran

Book 139

Lucky Boy was a slow-burn, but so delicious! Incredibly complicated characters and a detailed, rich story line. Fiction about immigration to The United States, detention centers, and deportation. Worth the read! I will read her first novel and can't wait for her to write more. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Roped the boyfriend into corn tortilla making today.
They worked out okay overall 🤣 some were used in this recipe, and the other half I plan to make into tortilla chips tomorrow :)

We made Enfrijoladas with feta cheese (inside the tortillas and on top) and sour cream. Unfortunately our coriander was not looking so good so we skipped that topping!

The black beans have some arbol pepper powder in so had a nice heat ☺️
