In the morning we were all packed and ready to leave this retreat. Breakfast is Chilaquiles, the wonderful rolls and plates of papaya. I am not shy about eating breakfast anymore and savor the green peach marmalade one last time. I can't possible carry anything else or I would take a jar each of it and the blackberry preserves. Diana told me she has a recipe similar to the green peach marmalade in her " Nothing Fancy" cookbook. I can't wait to look it up.
She joins us and as promised gives me the paperback copy of "The Tortilla Book" and a note to Taste Catering thanking them for the goodies. Everything seems fine with she and Andre. We are settling the bill with him which, of course, was complicated. He had me mixed up with Cindy the entire week, charging my food and drinks to her and vice versa. This was a riot to us as I guess all blondes look alike in Mexico. We straightened it out with alot of French Vietnamese-Spanish chatter from Andre . Our bus arrived and off we went to Mexico City, crammed into the bus for a three hour non-stop whirlwind trip.
Whew! My trip down memory lane is over, at least for this adventure...
Here are some odds and ends of photos that I thought were fun.
