Sunset Supreme

by wjw on November 27, 2021

Today being a perfect day for it, we headed down the Rio Abajo to our local bird sanctuary, where we watched thousands of our feathered friends flying in at sunset.

Sometimes we see deer, coyotes, or wild javelinas (smallish boar), but no luck today. Instead, we saw colossal numbers of sandhill cranes and snow geese.

The weather was perfect until the sun set, at which point the air chilled rapidly, and it was time to go home.

Since we came home chilled to the bone and we hadn’t prepared a meal, it was time to play a game of “freezer hunt.” Little did I know that I would soon invent a new dish.

Our freezer hunt turned up frozen tamales, a holiday treat hereabouts, and so I microwaved a couple of tamales with red chile sauce, then popped a couple of fried eggs on top. Very tasty indeed! I’ve seen breakfast burritos, breakfast enchiladas, and breakfast tacos, but I’ve never seen breakfast tamales before, so I claim credit for inventing them.

The eggs held the whole dish together, if you ask me.
