!@#$%^&*( grocery shopping)

I live in New Mexico, 25 miles from Albuquerque city limits. Quite nice here, 5200 altitude, and lots of nice people. But a horror to grocery shop in!

That's what inspired vegetarian chef/author Deborah Madison to write a Savory Way; born and bred Bay area girl moves to Flagstaff.

Interesting. I thought she wrote Savory Way while living in San Fran area and Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone (as well as Supers.. and Flavors..) while in Santa Fe area. Ah well, you are far more knowledgeable than me. Cheers

My former boss would say you live in God's country. I love New Mexico. My family and I have traveled there twice and especially liked Acoma Pueblo. I can see where anything 25 miles outside of Albuquerque would be remote. Plenty of casinos, not many strip malls.

Animal crackers and cocoa to drink,


that is the finest of suppers I think.


 When I'm grown up and can have what I please,


I think I shall always insist upon these.

Yes! It truly is a beautiful state, and so very different in almost every way. "My mountain" (Manzanos} is only 19 miles away, and Ladrones
(thieves mountain) is about the same. From my house I can see Mt Taylor that is over 60 miles and Wild Horse Mesa about 45 miles. On the way into Abq. there is Sandia and the "5 Volcanos". The vistas are beautiful enough that I do not need or care for the casinos. Yep, I do love it here, but shopping is a royal pain!!
Thank you for your comment.

On a visit to NM about 10 years ago, my husband and I took a detour from Albuquerque to Santa Fe and got lost. We ended up on a dead-end road at the foot of a mountain. The road ended at this idyllic  farm and apple orchard. Of course, we turned right around and found the interstate again, but since then, when I can't sleep, I think about how nice it would be to live on an apple farm at the foot of the northern NM mountains. It's a pleasant little dream.
