Happy Birthday, Mom; the Party was Lovely

It’s not every day that your mom celebrates 80 years. So we all got together & chipped in, cash and effort, to hold a reception for mom’s celebration. Oh, nothing too elaborate; she’s not that kind. A reception at a hall in the village, a few hours of chatting, sharing and eating. (Lots of […]

Chile Underground Reaches Major Milestone; Media in Awe…

This week the Chile Underground, your favorite place to read about zesty food, cooking adventures, occasional travel and unsurpassed levity, passed a major milestone. In fact, even if you’ve been following along at home you likely missed it. So I’ll point it out to you, just to be on the safe side:

We reached 1,000 […]

It’s Late, I’m Tired, and Tomorrow Will Be a Long, Long Day…

It was a long day today. I got the yellow pepper jelly made, and the Lemony Snicket, er, Lemony Hot Jam too. To top that off, I made a very special Hatch chile jelly, to celebrate the Hatch Chile Festival. (This weekend was the last one this year, locally.) I’ll be submitting the recipe, […]

This entry is part of a series, Follies 2011»

Eating the local cuisine is one of the great perks for globe-trotting athletes. Except in the instance of this year’s FINA World Aquatics Championships in Shanghai. It seems that, because of instances where 2008 Summer Olympics athletes were sanctioned after eating locally-produced pork, this year’s […]

Google+ is Here! The Underground Is In; Are You?

Sometimes the IT (Insignificant Technology) Elves here at the Underground are completely asleep at the switch and behind the times may overlook an option or two for driving the CU to world domination promoting our efforts to convert the whole world to zesty food. For instance, no matter what threats and prodding I use […]

Follies: Barbeque That Goes Where You Go, All Day Long

This entry is part of a series, Follies 2011»

In a world full of phony commodities, including fake car passengers (beat the HOV lane), impostor jeans (eat anything, they’ll fit), sham camisoles (cleavage control, dontcha know), and even fictionalized basketball player names (Whirled Peas??), it’s nice to know that Real Products for Real Men […]
