Cooking for one person.
Ever since I became a fulltimer in 2003, I've always made a bunch enchiladas, then froze them for eating later. A few days ago here in Aticama, I stumbled across a tiny [210g] box of tomato sauce in the grocery. This sauce comes too sweet for enchiladas, and I doctor it up with garlic salt and spices to taste.

This box of tomato sauce is just about the perfect size for two enchiladas. And two enchiladas are about twice the amount that I can eat at one meal. So, one batch of enchiladas is good for two meals!

In the pic below you see my meal tonite. I oven bake and eat from the cast iron skillet. For some reason, this wonderful meal tastes better the 2nd day.
Enchilada and refried beans for supper tonite.

Listening to the words of the waters.
During the afternoons I sit in the shade listening to the ripple of the little river. Years before I fell in love with rivers. And am still in love with them. Some say that the sound of falling water carries the words of loved ones no longer with us.

Do you know the movie, "A River Runs Through It?" At the end of the movie, director Robert Redford reads:
"Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it. The river was cut by the World's great flood and runs over rocks on the basement of time. On some of the rocks are timeless raindrops. Under the rocks, are the words. And some of the words are theirs."

"I am haunted by waters."

Listening for the words.
