So much carne

We are headed to Tucson in the next hour or so. Last night’s preparations can be seen in the picture above. 600 gram cuts (1.3 lbs) for the hombres. These are the kind that put you into a coma upon completion. So excite.

Naranjeros

We went to a Naranjeros baseball game last night. Normally soccer is the most popular sporting event in Mexico, but in our city baseball ranks just as high and that we have one of the highest ranked baseball teams in the country. We never been to a game before, but last night a neighbor invited us to a game.

Family lunch

We went out to lunch to a place near the house last Sunday. This is our second time there and hopefully our last. Overpriced and the food is mediocre at best.

Breads

I have been trying to familiarize myself with my new oven. There are a few challenges, one of which is getting steam to stay in the chamber and not be exhausted. The other challenge is running on gas. Gas seems much more affordable than electricity here, but the problem of course is running out of gas in the middle of a bake. That’s what happened yesterday. I was able to switch the tanks under 20 minutes, but it clearly had impact on the quality of the bread as the bake time was a total mystery.

I made three different options yesterday. I made two loaves of chiltepin and Mennonite cheese. I made two loaves of chiltepin and garlic. And I made two loaves of Chile de Arbol. I did not pre-shape and did a 40-minute autolyze.

There are so many variables that complicate the process and I am inevitably making multiple mistakes in the process. The photo above will help me remember some of the details for this round.

Beach walk

Our time and Kino has come to an end. The weather was glorious every day. Yesterday we went for a walk on the beach, that we had entirely to ourselves. This is most assuredly one of the best times of the year to visit.

First night Kino

We arrived in Kino yesterday afternoon. We are staying at the home we normally stay at which is right on the beach. This is a glorious time of year to be here because we have the entirety of the beach to ourselves and the weather is spectacular.

Last night was all about tradition with our 600 gram ribeyes. They were amazing.

Beautiful sunset.
