    Two well-known residents led the way during this year’s Mora Fiestas parade last Saturday morning. Matias and Joan Maestas’ work has benefitted the area tremendously.

  • I really enjoy learning new ideas, new ways to do things. High on this list at the moment is the use of parchment paper to cook things like salmon or chicken. The recipe is so simple and so good. One just places a serving size piece of salmon, (or a chicken breast) on a square of parchment paper. Then one adds sliced onions, thinly sliced lemons and tops it off with a spring of fresh fennel. Bake in a moderate over for 30 minutes or so and you have dinner in a paper dish! The fennel probably wouldn’t work with chicken, but I plan to explore this idea soon.

  • A large group of friends and relatives gathered at the home of Jesse Romero in Chacon to help her celebrate her 92nd birthday last Saturday. Her children set-up a feast for all to enjoy as they congratulated Romero. Many different people played music and sang “Las Mañanitas” and “Happy Birthday.” The day was filled with good music, as the people played guitars and sang the old Spanish songs. There was lots of food for the guests to enjoy.
