brunnhilde's cassette toilet - part 8

It was a soggy day here in Portland. Finally in the afternoon there was a dry break and I was antsy to make more progress. I set out to remove the plywood base for the raise platform for the NAFTA James Cook. Judging from the surface area I knew I cannot remove it with brute force. It is built like the Bismarck. To defeat it I have to resort to the British admiralty's approach. Divide and conquer with death by thousand cuts.

tacos with homemade mole

Writing about my first attempt making taco got me fired up this morning. It is soggy outside and I have all the ingredients. No better day to try my hand in making mole. I had been very curious with what Mexicans do with these dried ancho (also called poblano) peppers. Watching Pati's Mexican Table I learnt the basics of making mole. It turns out to be very simple.

taco, taco, and more taco

I had never tried making taco. Like a lot of people I ate plenty of bad ones at fast food places that are nothing like taco Mexicans eat. I only had real taco once in a restaurant that specialized in wood fired food including pizzas. I had fish tacos for the first time and they were so delicious.
