NM Daytripping: New Mexico Farm and Ranch Heritage Museum

City people make most of the fuss about the charms of country life. ~ Mason Cooley

We finally did it.

City slicker hubby and I threw ourselves into a half-day of activity at the New Mexico Farm and Ranch Heritage Museum here in Las Cruces.

And it wasn’t boring.

Could it be because we were never really “city slickers” to begin with? We did, after all, move west of our own free will. More mochi . . .

The generous prosper and are satisfied; those who refresh others will themselves be refreshed. ~ Proverbs 11:25

Not like I’ll ever turn my nose up at a box of chocolates

But a gift of encouragement is sweeter still.

Irresistible. 

I can’t do without it ~ particularly as a blogger.

That’s why I’m thrilled and honored to have received a Liebster award

In case you’re not familiar with it, the Liebster is an award given by bloggers to encourage up and coming bloggers. It originated in Germany and the word liebster means darling, beloved, pleasant, and liked very much.

A nomination, to the blogger receiving it, says: “I like what you’re doing on your blog. It’s lovely and I appreciate the hard work.” More mochi . . .

Burritos are proof God loves us. ~ Blake Stratton

Have you noticed? There’s something about the colors of red, green, and white; good things happen nearly every time you see them together.

They’re Christmas colors. And the national colors of two countries with amazing food, Italy and Mexico.

It was the latter case yesterday, when they came together in a bowl of pico de gallo ~ the start of another great meal at ¡Ándele!. More mochi . . .
