Life on California's beautiful Central Coast

Sopapillas!

Here they are .. the famed dough pillows .. a delicious New Mexican treat, usually served on the side of a meal that is way too big to truly enjoy them.

Delicious.

Delicious.

These were from a great local Taos lunch/breakfast restaurant called Michael’s Kitchen, and they came with the most delicious flavor-infused fat I’ve ever had in my life – homemade honey butter.

We also lucked into a good local brew pub for dinner called Eskes, so I guess all my whining about foodies yesterday was silly. Their green chili stew with ground turkey and green curry special were very tasty and totally reasonably priced. (Here’s an example of Taos-style diversification: The family also runs a local balloon tour adventure company.)
