Well it is that time again............time to do your shopping and get ready for Capirotada. Tomorrow is fat Tuesday as they say in New Orleans but for "nosotros los Mexicanos" it is time to prepare for Ash Wednesday. Not only do we prepare capirotada but we begin to prepare all the other lenten meals which means meatless pero muy sabroso.   Today we purchased el pan bolillo at the panaderia La Sonorense. Tomorrow we slice the bread lengthwise and toast it in the oven. Hubby diced all the dried fruit today to use for the capirotada. He shelled the peanuts and will toast them tomorrow. He went to Supermercado Mexico today and purchased Canela, piloncillo, tomatillos, queso Oaxaca and we will be ready to roll tomorrow.   For the rest of the meal we bought nopales, dried favas which in spanish are habas and the dried, powdered shrimp. We will make tortas de camaron con nopales en mole rojo. We will shell
and clean the favas and boil until soft, then will saute with chopped onions, minced garlic and diced fresh tomatoes. In the morning we have one very light breakfast as this is a day of fasting which means you have lighter than usual meals. For lunch we will have the favas and for late afternoon the tortas de camaron con nopales y mole rojo. Will have the family over in the late afternoon to share a meal and a prayer and then off to church for Ash Wednesday.   These are my family's traditions from Tlachichila Zacatecas.   Happy Fat Tuesday to all........Alicia Avelar Olmos de Carrillo

Geez....Alicia....I thought this was going to be an invitation to the Ranchos Group for Capirotada at your home. Great family tradation....Saludos, Helyn

Wouldn't that be nice, to be able to gather together for special moments the Ranchos families.   I invite anyone who is in the Northern California Bay Area, that when your travels bring you this way, please let me know and you can be our guests in our home. My husband Juan and I love to entertain and love to have family over, the more the merrier. We will cook whatever is in season and share a meal.   Alicia Avelar Olmos de Carrillo

Alicia......thanks for the invitation!  My husband and
I have an RV and have travelled to your area in the past; however, my travels
now take me to Switzerland (by air!) where my youngest daughter lives. In fact,
I will be leaving around March 23rd or so.....maybe sooner.......to stay with
her for 3 months.  She is due to have her 2nd child the end of March or so
and I will be playing "grandma" for a couple or three  months, returning in
June.  We plan to sneak in a trip to Italy while we are in the
area.....I will have my laptop with me and will keep in
touch. 
 
Thanks again for the invite!

Alicia,
Thanks go much for sharing you menu.  It has been so long since I've had the torts de camaron.  My mom and grandmother used to prepare these but they're no longer living and unfortunately neither my husband or my kids appreciate seafood.  As for the capirotada, I've never been able to duplicate that which was prepared by my grandmother, mother or aunts.  Fortunately I have a couple of aunts who are still living and they always remember me at this time.

My regards to you and your family, I'll be thinking of you of Ash Wednesday.

Like Alicia said, "Happy Fat Tuesday" to all in the Ranchos group and their families.

God Bless,
Olivia Jaurequi-Reyes

Joseph......I am in the process of doing this.......I am
waiting to hear from someone on the hotel info.  He promised to get back
with me in the next couple of days.....if not I will certainly call him
again.  I will keep you updated. 
 
What I would like to request, again, is that ANYONE who
might be interested in this trip please let me know soon.  I have had
responses from Arturo Ramos, Maria Cortez, Alice Carrillo, Helyn, Lydia Corona
and Francisco Sevilla stating they might be interested.  I do not need a
definite "yes" right now, only to get some idea as to the number of rooms to
request from the hotel.   I also need to know if anyone will be
sharing a room, and the number of people for each room.  I was told that
the price would be $80.00 per room for one to four persons per room. 

 
I am working on something else but will not have
details until later this week or early next week......soooooo keep tuned! 
:-)
 
Best regards,
 
Josie in San Antonio

Helyn,   Will you be coming to Fremont this Thurs? If so I would like to bring you some of Juan's now world famous capirotada, that is if there's any left after today. Just kidding, if I know you are coming I will set some aside for you. Let me know, tu amiga Alicia.

My Zacatecan grandmother used to make capirotada and atole. I didn't
like them as a child, now that she's dead, I can't tell her how much I
enjoy my heritage that she gave me. Marge:)

I know that our first and foremost task as a Ranchos member is the research of our families, but I think it would be interesting to look at the various family customs/traditions that have been passed down through the generations, including the different foods and their variations.  Is anyone else interested?
