Una Comida Co-operativa in Quiroga, Michoacán

Some local amigas have invited us to a Community Co-operative Dinner on Wednesday (the day before Thanksgiving!) at CANJE in Quiroga, Michoacán.

Various clubs are bringing a specialty dish. For example, the Mechanics Club is bringing Carne Apache tostadas (raw minced beef with peppers, tomato, onion and cilantro.), another, the Computer Sudies Club, I think is bringing Pozole. Our amigas of the Sewing Club are contributing corundas and some other item I forget. Oh, yes: no food event in Quiroga is complete without Carnitas.

We have been asked to bring bread, but as I'm deep in serious pie baking over the next few days, I may just offer a Pumpkin or Squash Pie.
But, ¡Ajá! deep in our freezer is a large, Cheese and Ham Stuffed Bread. It was conceived as a variation of a Georgian Khachapuri. I may heat it up and check to see that it hasn't suffered from a rather extended slumber in the freezer compartment.

I will report back... with pictures, I hope.The next day, we attend a TG dinner at at friend's house. More pies and Potato Rolls, too. I'm happy.

  1. The afternoon ended up "calabasas" (zeros), as we couldn't locate the event site. We returned home with a 12 pack of Cerveza Nochebuena, and ate some stuffed bread and pumpkin pie, after sharing some with the Señora and her daughter who'd given us the pumpkins. It was all good.

      He, he time for Nochebuena... sadly no source for it in Northern California.
