Peen's Morsels

Welcome to the first week of CV's new mid-week feature, Morsels. Say it 5 times fast and it starts to sound funny. Morsels will contain bits of food wisdom and interviews with some of my favorite people. Enjoy these little bites!

Blind Melon

Chayote (it's Mexi) in stewed soup. (Ed. note - Chayote is a type of Mexican squash)

life, what would that flavor be?

I love Pistachio but...really Jamoca Almond Fudge makes my dreams come true. I like the nuts!

This is a tough one. It's a tie between Mexico, One Plate at a Time with my man, Mexican wannabe Rick Bayless and Check, Please! Alpana Singh is muy sexy.

5. Please describe your ideal 2 am drunken feast:
First of all I get in at 4 am. 2 carne asada tacos, with onions and cilantro, 1 vegetarian taco from Allendes on Lincoln and a baked apple pancake from Clarke's. I'd be slurping on some Tamarind Juice and a Budweiser.

A nice Shiraz. Oh...u mean food - - sauteed spinach with garlic and mushrooms from Gibson's.
