That’s not a word by the way.  “Comida” is dinner/supper/meal in Spanish.  Edible comida might be a cross-cultural “comidable?”


Here are a couple of pics of stuff we’ve munched on recently:

This is a well-known Mexican dish called “chochinita pibil.”  Traditionally, it would involve a suckling pig (ours was not) as well as cooking it in an underground pit (our was cooked on the stove in the kitchen).  Minor differences really…except for how it tastes.  But never mind that.  It was good.  This was Beth’s first attempt to make it.  It needed some adjustments for next time.  We decided the best way to eat the leftovers was to put all the meat in a skillet and bathe it in Sweet Baby Ray’s BBQ sauce!  That was good too!
Kristin sold Beth two Tupperware empanada makers (they were only $30 pesos apiece on sale!).  For dinner recently Beth made some with ham and cheese in them and others with beef and cabbage.  The boys preferred the ham and cheese.  Beth and I preferred the beef and cabbage, although I drizzled Louisiana Hot Sauce and Valentina Salsa Picante on top of mine.
The cherry empanadas with glazed sugar were easily my favorites.

This is…what IS this?  Oh yes, this is actually nothing, or rather two things.  One is a nopal cactus salad and the other is some kind of lentil salad (sort of like pico de gallo).  Not sure which salad had which ingredients but in the photo I detect cubed nopal cactus, tomato, onion, cilantro, lentils, lime juice, and serrano pepper.  Yes, I did eat this.  Yes, I liked it!
